Sep 3, 2012

From Artipia Games:

The world of business is a world of tough situations.Tough situations demand tough decisions.You, as a young and ambitious entrepreneur, will struggle for wealth. In order to gain wealth, you should first create an efficient economic engine. The dilemmas will be hard. Which companies will you acquire and activate first? Which company's ability is the most appropriate for the early yearʼs economic boost? Will you manage to create a flexible but also effective decision deck? Timing is crucial. Mind what your competitors are doing. They will try to block your plans. They will try to steal your resources. There is no room for error. There is no time for hesitation. Open your Briefcase, lay out your business plans and enjoy the game!

Players take on the roles of entrepreneurs. By acquiring and activating the appropriate companies, each player will improve his decision deck, which will help him further expand his business. The player who will create the most effective decision deck and manage to take advantage of it wins the game.
