The best games where unchosen resources increase in value 📈 2023

Looking for a really good game where unselected resources increase in value 📈? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best games 2023 with increase in value of non-selected resources.

What are games with unselected resources increasing in value?

When players do not select certain actions or resources, the value of the resources increases.

Puerto Rico is a classic example of this technique, since a coin is placed on unselected resources. This mechanism is a simple way to balance different options.

The money can come either from the bank, as in Puerto Rico, or from the players themselves, as happens in Small World, where players must place a coin on factions that are skipped.

"Increase Value of Unchosen Resources" is sometimes called "Increase Value of Unselected Resources".
