Business games

Today we talk about Business games! This is a broad subject but one that I think may well be interesting.

Google (and who can argue with that) defines business as:

noun
1) a person's regular occupation, profession, or trade.
"experts who typically conduct their business over the Internet"
synonyms: work, line of work, line, occupation, profession, career, employment,job, day job, position, pursuit, vocation, calling, field, sphere, walk of life, trade, craft; More

2) commercial activity.
"firms who want to do business with Japan"
synonyms: trade, trading, commerce, buying and selling, dealing, traffic,trafficking, marketing, merchandising, bargaining;

Why do I define this term here, well basically cause I don't want the whole of the hour taken up talking about what I mean by business, and do I mean economics etc.

The area of discussion are:

Q1: Do you like games about business at the start of this hour? #BoardGameHour
Q2: What do you like about business games? #BoardGameHour
Q3: What don't you like about business games? #BoardGameHour
Q4: What is the best game about medieval businesses? #BoardGameHour
Q5: Do you think board games can really model business? Could they be used to teach business? #BoardGameHour
Q6: Do you like trading games? which is the best? #BoardGameHour
Q7: Are there any games the really do stocks and shares well? #BoardGameHour
Q8: Which is the best game based on modern business? #BoardGameHour
Q9: Is business a good choice of theme? Are there any businesses that you think would make an interesting theme? #BoardGameHour
Q10: How do you feel about business games now? #BoardGameHour

See you later!
