ECON is a board game I developed in 2003 to play with friends. It started with poster board and markers, then slowly progressed into hand-crafted wooden versions that I lugged around different countries to play with fellow strangers. It's pretty cool. We can play in real life if you like. Or online!

Thanks for taking your time to play! Enjoy!
