TGIF Toys: Watch that table talk, J.R.
The object: Be the first to accumulate $20 million in holdings of assets and / or cash.
The method: Relentlessly steal from your opponents and deviously protect your own holdings.
The inspiration: J.R. Ewing, of course.
From Mego Corp., maker of those fine 8-inch dolls from the '70s and '80s (and a set of prototype 4" figures from "Dallas," by the way) comes this card game, snagged on eBay several years ago. For two to four players age 8 and up (isn't that a little young?!), the game features cash cards and asset cards for "wheeling, dealing and stealing." Great, deal us in.
