This is a hysterical game for all of us who lived through the zenith of the era and worked in it. We even made new card ideas for our real bosses.

Excellent Fun
April 21, 2004

I bought this game on a whim when living in the USA. A co-worker was buying it over the internet and yelled out, 'hey do you want a copy too'. At the time is was quite cheap, so I quickly yelled back 'yes'. What an excellent decision that was.

I brought the game back to Australia with me and when the technologycompany I was working for announced it was shutting down in four weeks I brought the game into the office and we began playing it at luch time. Before long we were playing it 3-4 times per day (we had no work to do) and everyone got hooked. I could have sold 10 copies of the game within two weeks.

Its a good game for four people, you can attack, be attacked, and then extract revenge with some clever plays. I highly recommend it.

Perfect for the dot-com survivor!

I purchased this game because I've 'been there, done that', and I like games with a sense of humor. (This game even pokes fun at itself; one of the bad ideas for a 'dot-com card game'!) It has become the runaway hit at the office here; we will routinely play a couple times a week at lunch. In fact, it has become so popular that one of the guys went and got his own copy so that we could run more than one table.

The game is well done, easy to learn and plays in about 30-45 minutes, perfect for lunch. We routinely play rather cutthroat, sticking one guy with the worst sales VP and the worst development VP, which means that the poor victim gets all the bad ideas and never gets rid of them. We've had several games come right down to the wire, with one guy winning with a funding of 0.

For a fairly quick and raucous card game with a lot of interaction among the players, you can't do much better. For me, it ranks up there with Bohnanza.
