COVER YOUR ASSETSTM
Great Quick Playing Family Game
I heard about this game on the Myriad Games Sessions Impressions Podcast. It includes two decks of nicely illustrated quality cards. The game involves making pairs of various assets, either from your hand, your hand and the discard pile or by stealing someone else's pair of assets from the top of their asset pile. As you build pairs of assets you set them before you placing the first pair veritcally and the second pair horizontally on top of the previous pair. You continue to place pairs in this "crossed" manner. Only the top pair of assets is subject to theft (hence the name!). The winner is the first person to reach $1,000,000. There are also wild cards that are very valuable and can also be used to make pairs. The stealing mechanism involves a battle in which one player plays an asset card (or wild card) matching the defending players top asset cards. The defending player then can play the same asset card from his or hand to defend (or play a wild card). The attacker can then play an asset card (or wild card) again and so on until someone wins. The winner takes all the cards played into his or her asset pile. It is this "gotcha" battle mechanic that really makes the game.
The game does include some math skills that will help young kids and it is very accessible. My 8 year old daughter beat my wife and me. Good, light, fun family card game. Highly recommend it.

We love a night of good, fun competition, but with work schedules and extracurricular activities, sometimes we don't have a lot of time to play lengthy board games. What I love about each Grandpa Beck's Game is they are fast paced, designed for quick game play.....Their number one seller, Cover Your Assets is a fast paced game where you build up your assets, trying to become the first millionaire in the game. But watch out! Your assets can be seized by your opponents, making it a little challenging to get to millionaire mark first.....Something we love about the hobby game industry is finding companies that know what they’re good at. Thrift shops are full of games by companies that tried to expand into areas they knew nothing about. Of course there are big-name exceptions that can afford to experiment in different genres because a failure is but an aberration on their financial statements. But we’ve found that a company that focuses on what they know consistently puts out better-than-average products. Genius Games proves our point with their line of science-related titles. And for challenging single-player puzzles, you can’t go wrong with issues by ThinkFun. This past fall at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair we discovered another company that is excelling with inexpensive and engaging card games –Grandpa Beck’s Games.We met with Grandpa Beck himself and he reiterated one of their taglines, “We will only sell games that we have enjoyed as a family with many friends.” We enjoy hearing that they’re not there to just sell a game to us, but to offer an experience they themselves believe in. This fits right in with what we preach at SahmReviews – that family game play is an amazing bonding and learning experience for everyone. Even better than sitting down and having a meal together in our opinion (although we do this as well)....

Cover Your Assets is our new favorite game here at my house. Will absolutely loves it, and it is one of the few games he doesn’t need help to play and we don’t need to modify it! .......This card game literally takes minutes to learn, and perfecting your strategy means the fun can last for years. I’m serious, if you come to our house, Will will ask you to play this. That’s how much he loves it! We love it too and it is easy to travel with! (We have it up in Wisconsin right now as we visit my family!).
A Hilarious Fun Time!!
I received this game as a gift. The first time my husband and I played it was over the Thanksgiving holiday with my son's family which included his wife, 14 and 16 year old sons and his father-in-law. We had a hilarious time playing this game. The competitive personalities of the different family members had us laughing so hard we were in tears. The kids asked if we would leave the game when we went back to our hotel and they were still playing it when we got there the next morning. Great game for young and old. I'm giving all my kids copies of this game for Christmas. Awesome family fun! Grandpa Beck Rocks!!

What a great job y'all are doing!
Hi, wanted to say hello and let you all at Grandpa Becks know what a great job y'all are doing! Our family loves your games and have spent many evenings enjoying quality time together. Our favorite is Cover your Assets® & Golf coming in at a close second. We have Skull KingTM & just ordered Nuts about MuttsTM. We have shared your games with many of our friends who enjoyed them so much that 5 of them immediately went and bought Assets, I know 2 of them got 2 boxes like we did so we can play with more people! We bought 2 sets of golf and took it to our friends 40th bday party last weekend and had a great time! 2 of those family's said they were getting it ASAP! These games have brought so much joy to our family! We LOVE them. Assets is my all time favorite game!! Thank you &
Keep up the excellent work, Thanks for the memories.
