I'm gonna go on down to the Stock Market and do a business. That's the free enterprise, capitalistic spirit found in Free Market, a new worker placement and resource management board game that's up on Kickstarter now. Effectively apply your resources to continually grow your fortune. Be the most successful businessperson and show the world who's in charge.
From the campaign:
FREE MARKET: NYC is a competitive and strategic board game based on the principles of a free market economy, presented from a humorous and ironic perspective of life, making it both a social and fun game!
In this game, you will find yourself managing a group of people who work together in different assignments, aiming to grow their fortune according to your vision.
Throughout the game, you will purchase merchandise at the auction, deliver goods to shops and factories, establish partnerships in shops and factories, or possibly take over other players' business and capital.
You will also attend events, influence politics, win awards, and garner all kinds of influence to help your businesses, partnerships, and assets flourish as you move forward in the game.
The trick is simple: buy when the market is low and sell when it's high to make the most profit before your opponents do. The most successful businessman wins the game.
FREE MARKET is played with 2-5 players, ages 12+ and 90-180 minutes long. The rules booklet is in 6 languages, but the game board is completely multilingual.
The game's just up and over its funding goal with 11 days left to go.
