Stockpile is an economic board game all about insider trading. If I told you I was already an expert in stock markets, well, I'd be a big fat liar, but that doesn't matter in this game.

Acting as traders from the late 20th century, the aim of the game is to be the richest fat cat in all the land by end-game. Rather than everyone knowing everything about the market, the game runs on the principle that everyone knows something and you've got to play to your strengths.

"In the game, this philosophy manifests in two ways: insider information and the stockpile. Both of these mechanisms are combined with some stock market elements to make players consider multiple factors when selling a stock."

Don't worry if the idea doesn't stick right away, you can read up about the game in more detail right here.
