From the Publisher...

When you invest in the stock exchange, you want to buy low and sell high! But it does not always go that way, so sometimes you will need subsidies from the government to keep investing. To keep the stocks you have acquired on the rise, you must convince other players they have value so they will buy those stocks and keep your profits soaring.

Now the signs suddenly show that there could be a coming busrt.You must decide quicky if the signs are right and sell your holdings or wait a bit longer for them to rise further and increase your profits. In the end, of course, the player who has earned the most money (in this case in the form of gold reserves) will win the game! Times again the good taxpayer takes over the subsidies.

A fast-moving game with thrills and excitement as players try to outwit each other for the highest gains. But the bust can come suddenly and ruin all - even the fortunes of the other players.

A frighteningly realistic game that reflects the real dangers and opportunities of investing in the stock market. Bring your steel nerves and money to see how you fare!

I have always been fascinated by economic games, and I don't think there are enough of them. Black Friday is one of the best economic games I have tried, because it simulates very well what (I imagine) trading shares for a living is like . It has just the right amount of hidden information, open information, randomness and uncertainty about timing to keep you feeling confident about making decision, but not certain - and it is great fun both when your predictions come true and when you get stuck with a large pile of shares when the market crashes.
