About

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks

This is it! This is the game we've all waited for. A fun game that teaches the concepts of becoming an entrepreneur! Start your Home-based or Brick & Mortar business and compete against others as you establish and grow your empire, make side deals with other players...all while avoiding bankruptcy!

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks

 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 there is a greater investment for a Brick & Mortar business...but the upside in more income possibilities!

Where will you start?

The Entrepreneur Game Playing Pieces

TRUMP CARD, MARKETING CARD, WILD CARD AND LOSSES
TRUMP CARD, MARKETING CARD, WILD CARD AND LOSSES

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 ideas.

Yellow: Wild Cards. Wild cards can affect your business in any number of ways. Could be good, could be 'not so good'.

Red: Losses. Every business deals with challenges, setbacks and losses along the way; life is anything but predictable. You 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!

Learn to turn passion into profit!

 ...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.

 Here are a few things we have planned especially for this Kickstarter launch...

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #1
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #1

                                 PRECIOUS GEMS & METALS

Yes indeed! We are anticipating a great round of financing for this project...so much so that we have a few special expansion features up our sleeves! First up, precious gems and metals. What a way to expand our investment techniques in business.

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks; learning to invest
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks; learning to invest

Once we reach the $28,000 mark, we will include in every single game sold, an expansion to include investing in gems and precious metals. Each game will include a number of various stones and precious metals (which will be held by the Bank). We will include the addendum to the rules showing how to incorporate these pieces in the game.

                                     But WAIT, there's more...

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #2
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #2

In the best of circumstances, we will do well enough with this round of financing that upon meeting a $38,000 goal, we will give you the opportunity to TAKE YOUR BUSINESS PUBLIC!

That's right, this expansion pack allows you to make the ultimate Board of Directors decision about the future of your company; offer stock in your company to the world! With this expansion pack we will include all the additional pieces and information you will need to become the ultimate business person! Start your company and expand to the point of becoming a true mogul.

Where learning and fun intersect!

                            BUT WAIT...THERE IS STILL MORE!!!

The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #3
The Entrepreneur Game by EESpeaks Expansion Pack #3

We have two more expansion packs in store. Expansion pack #3 will be announced as we are nearing the $48,000 mark. This is so great we are not comfortable putting it on the internet just yet (don't want any similar things before we get the chance to unveil it first! We will also have a fourth expansion pack announced as we are about to hit the $75,000 mark!).

We are so very excited, this game is ready! We have had so many people play the game over the past few months and they love it! The average playing time for a group of 4 was slightly over an hour! It was fun, interactive and full of surprises.

No two games are ever alike and the only limits are your imagination!

Risks and challenges
