Everyone has been impacted by the economic recession in one way or another, and now, art—or fun, rather—can imitate reality with recession board games. These offer a funny take on traditional games such as Trivial Pursuit, Operation, and Clue.

The recession board games feature clever plays on titles such as Trivial Job Pursuit, and Life Sucks. I found these recession board games amusing, and games that I would totally be down for playing.

When the economy suffers, both the individual and businesses suffer, however with a little bit of humor and ingenuity, a great product that benefits the need of the consumer and a business is revealed.
