About

Welcome to Market Madness! 

The objective of the game is quite simple: navigate the markets and manage your portfolio to make money faster than your opponents.

  • This market has 150 stocks across four industries: Financial, Industrial, Retail, Tech.
  •  Each industry experiences booms and busts. The state or overall quality of each industry is rated A-F. Combined, these ratings form a “State of the Economy”. 
  • The economy has 11 states ranging from prosperity to despair; the state is determined by rolling two dice. 
  •  Stocks are purchased from and sold to the stock exchange. Each stock has prices that determine its’ valuation at a given time based on the state of the economy. 
  • When it is your turn, roll the dice to determine the state of the economy. You may then purchase a stock at the given price from the exchange. If you do not purchase the stock, it will be auctioned off to the highest bidding player. (You may also bid on it)
  • While it is still your turn, you may also sell a stock to the exchange at the given price and/ or barter with other players 
  • Additional market factors include dividends, market crashes, and market manipulators. 
  • The player that accumulates cash fastest wins; the cash required to win varies based on the number of players in the game. 
  • The game can be played with 2+ players and typical gameplay is roughly 60 minutes.

Just remember: buy low, sell high and don't get burned! 

Risks and challenges

We are working with a proven game maker with a consistent track record of on-time delivery. We’ve also allotted 5 additional weeks of buffer time to ensure we can deliver the game by December. The game’s entire content & artwork set is complete.

The game has been play-tested including more than 100,000 computer simulated games to ensure the game has no pure and dominant strategy; rather the best strategy is a dynamic one, changing based on the progression of the game.

Though highly confident the project will be delivered on time, should issues arise and the timeline is potentially jeopardized, we’ll be 100% transparent and contact you immediately. Should you have any questions, comments or ideas feel free to reach out! marketmadnessgame@gmail.com
