Marcus Albers writes: "While there are those out there for whom making money is almost second nature, I am not one of them. I admit that freely. It is this deficiency that has challenged me the most while playing the newest game from Rusty Axe, Big$hot (herein referred to as BigShot because I hate it when people substitute symbols for letters). At first I thought I would be in for an experience akin to that of games like Flip or Flop and Build-a-Lot. But I soon realized that it takes some business savvy to make your way successfully through this big-business simulation, and not just an eye for property improvement."
