I ask, because I have tried to play it many times, and every time after a while the game became an unbearable chore, so I stopped.
It is usually fun while buying some fancy stuff initially, but sooner or later I run out of things to buy around a given price range. As an example if you are looking at the sub-£50,000 range, then there are only so many gold coins, Mont Blanc pens and top-of the-range cameras you can buy. But I have to keep buying every day, and soon I am buying things I never wanted and never will, just to make up the numbers.
The other problem is the time it takes to research. You have to search for the products you want, and record realistic prices. I found that it often takes more than 30-45 minutes just to get through one day... and gets harder when you have nothing to buy really, but forcing yourself to fill your daily quota.
As the days progress and the daily amounts increase, you are looking at longer time to research. An ideal kitchen, or a new swimming pool - if you are playing realistically - takes time to find at the right price (as you cannot go over your daily limit). And once you have done the kitchen and medium-sized car, what are you going to buy until you have reached the level of buying a new house? I often had to spend hours buying a dozen small (unnecessary) things because I have run out of ideas in that money range, and I am nowhere near buying a house or a supercar.
I think the premise of the game is flawed. I don't think people want more money so they can buy new stuff every day. People want more money so they can buy what they want when they want. Compared to ten years ago, my net worth is now more than ten times what it was back then. I own less physical objects today than I did then.
The Prosperity Game is an old Abraham process - early 2000's I would guess.
When it first came out, I probably played it for several months in a row and I quite enjoyed it. When it eventually became boring, I stopped playing.
Some points about the game...
