Product Description

Build apartment houses, rent them to tenants, and collect the rent. Sounds simple, but in Landlord every card gives you two options for play: one side is an apartment, the other has tenants, roofs (gotta have those when you build), cellars, renovations, and special actions. Move the wealthy tenants to your apartments and put the deadbeats in your opponents'. You can even bomb apartments, but don't get caught: jail awaits those who are careless!

Beware! Once you know the rules, you won't stop playing!
July 20, 2003

This game is one of the most unique that I've ever played. The mechanics are a little funky to understand at first, due to a so-so rule book, but once you learn it, you can't stop playing. Truly great fun. They should do a colorized version! (a la Guillotine)


The best card game ever!
October 27, 2002

Although I usually don't like games that are largely based on luck, this game is definitely the exception. Not only do I love the game, but everyone I've showed the game to has loved it too. It's easy to learn, has a great theme, and is fun with any number of players. If your concerned about crude graphics that a lot of reviewers are complaining about, worry not. They have been cleaned up in the second edition of the game.

Fun game.
December 12, 2000

This game merits a perfect score because it achieves what it sought out to do. It is designed as a short, humorous game that can provide entertainment for both many and few. The graphics on the cards may offend some people, but I found them hilarious. Furthermore, the game actually has a solid design that can provide for good replayability. For its genre, it is one of the best. I would definitely recommend purchasing this game.
