FRESH Big Time, an 18/36-Card Print and Play

I’m working on another print and play card game. This time a totally tubular 1980’s themed Wall Street game! It’s looking awesome, and plays pretty great.

The game is influenced by materialistic 1980’s culture, the pop art of Patrick Nagel, 80’s music, and character’s like American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman. Check out the Work-In-Progress thread at BGG for the whole story.

The game is 18 cards for 1 or 2 players, comprised of 2 stock marker cards and a 16 card deck. Print the cards twice for a 32 card deck needed to 3 to 5 players. The game plays great with 5 players!

A couple notes on the rules:
– Stock values don’t go below 0. When scoring, treat any stock below 0 as 0.
– Going last is an advantage, particularly in 2 player game. I am considering to play to specific rounds instead of to 100 points so that each player goes last same number of times:
2 Players: 4 Rounds
3 Players: 3 Rounds
4 Players: 4 Rounds
5 Players: 5 Rounds
