The board would be a top-down view of a town, showing several
big businesses [like "McBurger"], each having 3 or 4 locations
across the map. At the start, each player [CEO] would pick a
corporation to lead. Then they would receive 5 employees to
put at any one store owned by that corporation.
should be noted that a store owned by a corporation is not the
same as a store owned by a player. A store owned by a player
has at least one of that player's employees working at it. Stores
owned by a corporation are all of the same name [e.g.
McBurger]. Only one player may have employees working at a
store at a time.
Each turn the players would receive 2 employees per store that
he or she owns. These employees may be distributed between
their stores as the player wishes.
"Battles" between adjacent stores would occur as they do in
Risk!, but the attacker must give at least $10000 per employee
captured to the defending player. If a player successfully buys
an entire store, they may move employees into it, as long as
they do not abandon the original store.
If a player owns all of the stores of a certain type, then he or
she may buy new
and services to provide at a one of them [such as chicken
sandwiches at a specific McBurger]. These increase the amount
attacker needs to pay to capture an employee, and increase the
chance of successfully capturing employees of other companies.
I hope this makes sense - it's kind of hard to describe a board
game. If it doesn't, I'll try to rewrite/reword it.
||Some of the setback cards:
Enviromental Board takes you to court - pay 200 dollar court fee.
E coli outbreak at Burger Blob - Skip Next turn.
Or, You are held-up, again, by a past employee wearing a Mc Burgler mask - loose last gross earned.
||Seems like a great idea in principle. Why have so few people looked at this idea?
