The best games where victory points can be used as a resource 2021

Looking for a really good game where victory points can be used as a resource? Then we have just the thing for you: The list with the best "Victory Points as a Resource" games 2021.

What are "Victory Points as a Resource" games?

In "Victory Points as a Resource" games, Victory Points (VPs) can be spent as currency. The goal is to influence the score of the game in your favor.

Examples of games where Victory Points can be used as a resource:

Business or Economic Games, which use a currency and award victory to the players with the most money, are common examples of this mechanism. However, games with other themes such as Small World also use this mechanism. Games where currency (or other resources) can contribute in a small way as additional victory points at the end of the game (usually at some discount) are not marked with this mechanism, but rather as End Game Bonus/bonus at the end.
