Product Description

Product Description

The Construction Game, gives players a first hand try at making it big in the world of big equipment and big deals. Bid on jobs, buy dozers, backhoes, excavators, and scrapers, then put them to work. Build slowly or borrow your way to the top! There is no free lunch served at the job site. Be the biggest contractor in the valley. Ages 10 - Adult.

From the Manufacturer

The classic international award-winning The Farming Game has been adapted to fit a new industry- construction. Instead of making a living with fruit orchards, wheat, and cattle, players in The Construction Game go to work with backhoes, dozers, and graders. Although many of the business principles are the same, The Construction Game, is no clone, it's a great game in its own right. Adapted from the Farming Game by a construction engineer, this game gives players a first-hand try at the millions to be made in the hard-nosed world of dozer operators and construction bosses. The Construction Game teaches the gut-wrenching risks and rewards of the business. Players buy dozers, backhoes, excavators, and scrapers and put them to work. You can bid on jobs and purchase trucks, a sand and gravel operation, or a paving plant. Build your company slowly, or borrow your way into the big time, where a roll of the dice can bring you financial independence... or send you to the auction yard. Game Includes: $5,00,00 in construction cash, $20,000,000 in equipment and property, Plenty of I.O.U's, For 2 to 6 players ages 10 and up.

First of all, my family and I have had The Farming Game for years and fell in love with it! I recently decided to purchase The Construction Game because we loved the Farming Game so much! It did not disapoint!! I think we actually might like this game better! There is a little different strategy and it seems to take a bit longer to really get into the game... so plan on spending a whole day playing. My family will take a "break" for lunch, or whatever we need to do, and resume where we left off.

The only downside to the game that we found was that the game has puzzle pieces for the equipment instead of vinal stickers.... we are thinking that the company is being more "earth friendly"(?).... I still have the vinal stickers in The Farming Game and the puzzle pieces get knocked around when rolling dice. We prefer the vinal!

Also, the game needs higher denomination bank notes! In this game you are alloted up to $300,000 in loans during your tenth year, and the highest loan note is a $10,000, and only a few of them!! We have had to make our own notes of $50,000 and $100,000. We always keep a notebook handy so we can keep track of our loans and what year we are on better as well!

I defintily recomend this game to people who love to spend a day with family or friends really getting into a game. This is So Much Better than Monopoly because everybody has as equal a chance to win... and you don't really know who is ahead untill you finish and audit.... I can't tell you how many times I have played Monopoly where everybody "quits" because they get bored when somebody is monopolizing the board... we hardly ever finish... but with the Contruction Game and the Farming Game everybody is getting ahead together!! We play for hours!! Kuddos to the creators!! :)

I'd have to say, that this game in my opinion is one of the best ones I have played. It has a lot of money swapping... stressful dice rolls which make you or break you along with positions on the board that make you go head to head with other players. I have had it for a couple months and have played it multiple times. It is similar to Monopoly but ... isn't.

Truly a fun game! My family and I could not stop playing it. We have always enjoyed the Farming Game which was the inspiration for this game. The Construction Game utilizes essentially the same structure as the Farming Game but adds some fun rules which take some of the arbitrary catastrophes out and increases the element of risk taking. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys group strategy games (I am not sure that is an official genre, but there you have it).

My 13 year old son had been begging for this game, but we could not find it in stores. Found it on Amazon and got it in time for Christmas, and the whole family loves it! It is similiar to The Farming Game, with 'real-life' scenarios that make you think. Better than computer games that do all the brain-work for you.

Our family has been playing the Farming Game for many years and was delighted to get another fun game from the same people. Unlike Monopoly you don't have to bankrupt the other players in order to win. It's good decision making, plus luck of the draw, and rolling high numbers that makes the difference. It has enough randomness of real life to keep thing interesting. Be prepared, like the Farming Game, this isn't a game you can play in 30-60 minutes, it takes time to build up your construction equipment and jobs and when the money starts rolling in, you don't want to quit. This is fast becoming a favorite!

My husband works in construction and wanted the game for his birthday after playing the farming game. I know hardly anything about construction but we both really love the game and it is so much fun whether or not you know construction. There is just enough strategy involved to make the game interesting, but not so much that it becomes tedious. It takes awhile to really finish the game, but it is easy to take a break, write down scores/assets, and pick back up again later. We have only played with the two of us so far but are planning to have some friends over to play with a larger group.

We first learned The Farming Game and really liked it. But when we were looking into purchasing it we came across this one and decided to purchase it instead after reading about it. We love it! It is kind of like Monopoly but a lot more fun. You purchase different kinds of construction equipment throughout the game and decide whether or not to do the different jobs that you land on based on the equipment you own and what the possible expenses and returns will be. There are even some "competitive bid" jobs that every player who owns a particular type of equipment can bid against each other to do.

You can tell it is made by the same people who make The Farming Game. Instead of "construction worker" pawns they give you the same farmers that are used in The Farming Game. The bank loan notes are also in the same denominations as in The Farming Game even though you need to borrow a lot more in this game. We made extra bank notes, some in larger denominations, because we would run out pretty fast.

We play this game a lot and it is fun for both a couple or several people. We highly recommend it!
