"Is That The Best You Can Do?" Second Edition

An Austrian Economics Game

Learn and apply a fundamental element of Austrian economics ... the pricing mechanism in truly free markets! Negotiate your way to the most cryptocurrency to win.

This is an Austrian Economics card game.  The key learning from the game is that prices communicate value and - in truly free markets - they are determined by individuals.  In truly free markets, prices are not determined by central planners, government bureaucrats, tech companies or politicians.  

The theme of the game is futuristics.  Ever want to buy a flying car?  A time machine?  Now you can.  It's a future market where you will find shrink-ray guns, robo-dogs, anti-gravity boots and other fun technologies.  Players alternative buying and selling items.  There is no one right price.  Each interaction is its own negotiation.  Get creative!  And, if all else fails, just ask, "Is that the best you can do?"

"HODL UP is the best Bitcoin game EVER!"


"The best Bitcoin game I've played! It's a fun game on its own, but the Bitcoin parallels make it an excellent teaching tool too!"

"HODL UP is a fun game. Almost as easy as playing Uno. Cool thing is that... it is all based on crypto-currency. Playing enabled my children and me to learn as we mined coins! Its accessible gameplay makes it both a family-friendly game and an educational experience.

Highly recommend!"


"I was so excited to learn that Scott and his family created a Bitcoin-themed board game. I played it once and I was hooked: I had to buy a copy of my own (using the Lightning network, of course). This game brings into focus many of the key concepts and features of the Bitcoin network and prompts important questions and discussions with folks who have not yet been orange-pilled. Meanwhile, we are all playing a well-balanced and fun board game!"


"Loved playing this game!

Super fun intro to the fundamentals!"
