In Panic on Wall Street players are divided into Managers and Investors. Managers offer for sale shares of societies they are in charge of for as much as possible. Investors attempt to acquire them for as little as possible in order to get the best return possible. After two minutes of negotiation, a roll of the dice brings (sometimes drastic) changes to the economy, with major consequences for the balance sheet of each player. After five rounds of play (5 months), the manager and the investor who have accumulated the most money are each declared victors, the undisputed Masters of Commerce.

Are you ready to take-on your discovery mission to the archipelago?
Each player takes on the role of an explorer and their team, mandated by a European nation to discover, colonize and profit from the archipelagos. These missions are supposed to happen diplomatically, by answering the needs of the local population as much as the regular demands from the continent. You’ll have to respect the archipelago and its natives as otherwise, they’ll begin to revolt and that might end up with a war for independence. That’s not taking into account that among you a separatist and a pacifist might be hidden, who will both tip the scales toward revolt or peace, respectively!
Archipelago combines exploration, resource management, optimization, cooperation, strategy, negotiation, corruption, commerce, suspicion, alliances and betrayals, even a hint of investigation!
• Modular game with vast possibilities.
• A semi-cooperative game by Christophe Boelinger (Dungeon Twister, Earth Reborn).
• The possibility of choosing the length of your game – from 30 minutes to 5 hours.
