For what reason s? Published in it is one of the oldest games featured in the exhibition and probably the most complex games of its period. It was made when legislation of gambling was a controversial political issue in the United Kingdom and the game reflects that. Instead of simply betting on the outcome of races players must train horses, run stables, vets, forage merchants, and act as auctioneers and tote the government sanctioned book maker at race courses.
The game encourages players to see horse racing as a complex sport and not just an opportunity for gambling — in keeping with the social views of its designers. How did this collaboration come about? They approached me about writing a book to accompany this exhibition because they felt that board games were a numismatic subject which had not been given due attention and were keen to see a book on the subject. By focusing on board games it is able to delve into much more detail on the history of modern board games, from their origin in with Elizabeth Magie to their reinvention in Germany in the s and s, and to explore the different ways in which the games reflect or comment on money.
So in the book you will learn how the US government changed laws to protect a board game, how is the only game with anything positive to say about the stock market, and why Sid Sackson and his game Acquire were so important we felt it necessary to include those particular paper notes in the exhibition.
All of which are very difficult to incorporate in the limited space of an exhibition. American scrip issued during the depression in the s.

Having said that, Sperber was unwilling to name the worst offenders. Instead, she feels that the problem is best dealt with behind the scenes. We disagree, because in the interim doctored coins will still be passed on to us collectors and we may not be tipped off in time to those culpable of such fraud and deception.

In fact, I question if a few board members are using the board for personal gain. She feels that the ANA not only has to understand what collectors want but they also need to be willing to provide the protections that collectors need. In short, the ANA needs to step up and take charge. In her published remarks, as well as during our conversation with her, Sperber makes the case that the ANA should be the organization that oversees the hobby. It should take proactive steps to protect the collector, from the way transactions are handled to the way grading companies operate, and it should lead the fight against unscrupulous side of the hobby.
They are the only ones who can step up and be the voice of the collector with power. In our conversations with other candidates to date, none have taken as strong a position on collector advocacy as Sperber. She understands the organization needs operating capital, and thinks that she can develop an alternative funding plan. The organization is operating on a budget in excess of six million dollars, and would need to shore up any holes in the budget that changes to its funding structure would cause.

I really question if I am doing that here. Nevertheless, despite her reservations, Sperber told us that she wants to bring her influence with dealers and collectors to bear and try to turn around the lumbering giant. She hopes the electorate takes her words to heart and chooses wisely.
The ANA was an important force in the hobby 35 years ago when Sperber began her career as a numismatist. Whether the ANA survives another 35 years will depend on the visionary ability of its Board and leadership. One wonders if the organization would do well to elect someone like Sperber to the position of ANA president.
