Q.E. stands for "quantitative easing" which is central-banker-speak for printing money.  Q.E. is a game where you play the role of a central banker, bailing out failing companies by printing money and giving it to them.  The more companies you save, the better your score, but watch out, whoever prints the most money loses!

So in short, you bid to bail out companies, there's no limit to how much you can bid, but you have to be less profligate than at least one other player.  Complete Rules

Q.E. requires 3 or 4 players, so with a robot you still need at least 2 human players.  It's best with 4.

Robots:  The robots are very agressive bidders.

The back story: 
Some games have a concept that's just too cool to ignore; and what could be more cool than printing money.   I've been thinking about games along these lines ever since the most recent banking crisis, but Q.E. nails the essence of the concept.
