Payday: The Game, Strategy, and Interesting Information
Payday is a board game that was invented by Paul Gruen, and was originally manufactured and distributed by Parker Brothers for the first time in 1975. As you probably know, this game has been around since, and is still going strong. Anybody who has ever been a board game enthusiast knows just how much fun the game of Payday can be. In fact, even if you only play from time to time, there is a good chance that you have heard of Payday.
Generally speaking, the main objective of Pay day is to have more money than any other player when everything is said and done. If you do, you will be declared the winner. But of course, getting the most money is not the easiest thing to do. If it was, everybody would be a Payday champion. The players have the ability to determine how long the game will last. In most cases, this works out to somewhere between three and six months. Obviously, this does not mean that the game itself will last this long. The board for Payday is in the form of a calendar, and this is what makes it easy to keep track of the length of the game. Each space on the board counts as one day, and has a different result when a player lands on it.
There are several items that come with the Payday board game. They include: six playing pieces, one die, play money, game board (as detailed above), 48 mail cards, 24 deal cards, and a savings and loan pad or calculator.
Playing the game is simple. From the start, each player will receive $3,500. The players who are competing need to decide on who is going to start the game off. Players roll one die, and this will tell them how far they are supposed to move their piece; this can be anywhere from one to six spaces. The players must follow the directions that are outlined on the space that they land on.
When a player lands on a mail or deal space, they have to take a card off the top of the appropriate pile. Mail can be anything from a bill to something that is more beneficial. When a deal card is received, a player can opt to pay for the deal, or return the card to the bottom of the pile immediately.
As mentioned above, if you finish the game with the most money, taking debt into consideration, you will come out as the winner.
There is really not hard and fast strategy for winning at Payday. As you begin to play, you may devise a strategy that helps you to stay on track.
For a fun game that does not make you think too much, it does not get much better than Payday. This board game has been around and popular for many years, and this is not going to change anytime soon.
