Wits & Wagers
The other day I created a prediction market for School of Information students, faculty and staff to see what kind of forecast we could generate for the coming year's enrollment.
One of our staff told me that she had played a board game that was quite similar, and indeed it is: Wits & Wagers is more or less a prediction market board game. It doesn't aggregate the side bets into a market prediction, but it does allow players to take a position in various claims (actually, they are trivia questions, not predictions).
