A ruthless business game, only for the hard-nosed! This is Monopoly where you do not pass Go (and get free money) - its down to your decisions, those of your competitors and market conditions. Players take the role of company CEOs. The business tactics are fundamental: buy materials at auction, rent factories, produce goods, sell goods by auction and - the key thing - keep a good cash flow. Each turn new market conditions are randomly determined which influence the auctions. You must thrive, survive or go bankrupt. As in reality, one player may be able to accrue enough money to gain a near-monopoly of raw materials, forcing the competitors out of business and out of the game. For those that survive, the objective is to make the most money in twelve months trading.
This is a very rare game.
