This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, November 5 2018 4:59 AM UTC +00:00.
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks is a fun game that teaches the concepts of becoming an entrepreneur. You play by starting a Home-based or Brick & Mortar business of your choice and compete against other players as you establish and grow your empire. Make decisions that will grow your business through marketing, investing, decision making and negotiating deals with other players and the bank. You interact with four vastly different decks of cards and make adjustments to your business as needed- all while avoiding bankruptcy! No two games are ever alike!
Start at the beginning and work your way through!
Path #1: Home -based Business. Choose to start a home based business of your choice. Come up with the name of your business and what your business does. Home-based businesses are less expensive to start.
Path #2: Brick & Mortar Business. Choose to start a stand-alone business of your own, and you own the property! Sure, the investment for a Brick & Mortar business is more...but the upside in more income potential!
Where will you start?
There are four decks in the game that are colored coded with the game spaces. Land on a colored space and pick a card from the corresponding colored deck. The decks are;
Green: Marketing Deck. If you have set money aside in you marketing budget, when you land on the green space you pick a green card and find out the result of your marketing dollars at work. This deck is interactive, which means you may have to draw a logo for your business or create a jingle or create a commercial or any number of marketing tasks.
Yellow: Wild Cards. Wild cards can affect your business in any number of ways. Could be good, could be 'not so good...who's to say?'
Red: Losses. Every business deals with challenges, setbacks and plain old losses along the way; business is anything but predictable. You will definitely have to make adjustments to your plan along the way...will you be able to 'overcome' and 'become'?
Orange: Trump Cards. Trump cards are 'big business' cards whose effects trump all. You never know what can happen in business and you never know what will happen in The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks!
...and what game would be complete without MONEY! That's right, four different denominations. There are a few other items in the game such as dice, pencils and pre-printed pads to keep track of your income, liabilities and assets (just "unplugging" and investing the time to build our analog skills).
We are so very excited, this game is ready! We have had so many people play the game over the past two years and they love it! The average playing time for a group of 4 was just over an hour! It was fun, interactive and full of surprises.
No two games are ever alike and the only limits are your imagination!
Our approach was simple: let's create a board game that gives a real sense of the types of things to be consider as a budding entrepreneur. What type of business would you open? Would you open at home or rent a space? How much money do you put into marketing...what are the possible return scenarios? Do you take out a loan from the bank? How do you increase your profits...and how do you roll with the punches and make decisions that will avoid bankruptcy and help your business thrive?
We wanted to keep the game and rules simple, so we came up with a way to represent real life scenarios and interactive challenges to get each player engrossed in their business as well as giving choices on whether to and how to work with other players to develop your business growth and acumen.
More than just a game...
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks opens the imagination. This is the game that will open the many wonders and splendors of starting and growing your very own business and having fun doing it! Let your imagination and your children's imaginations run wild as your realize that you have the ability to create and run your very own business. But be careful; this game could lead to confidence, aspiration and goal setting...which may result in living an incredible life!
So the only question left is;
