Overview

Ready to Test Your CEO Instincts? 🥊  

The year is 1983… Your friends made a terrible decision. They entered your market. 

To win, you’ll have to take your tiny business public. You’ll need a product, clients, marketing and enough capital to survive the onslaught.

Will you be Beta or VHS?

How it Works 🎲

Control Alt Deceit is best played with 3 to 5 players. It’s also best played with a drink or two, but that’s more up to you. ;-)

  • To begin, each player draws a unique Unfair Advantage card giving his business a super power of sort.
  • Players get 2 actions per turn. They can decide to build their business and attack their competitors.
  • As the business grows in market value, players must acquire Product, First Client and Marketing cards.
  • To win the game, a player must file for an IPO (and go public).
  • After announcing an IPO, things get really interesting... as the player needs to stay on top, fend off the competitors and avoid being undercut by another player going public. 
  • The winner gets the bragging rights and gets to start the next game.

Note 🦄
  • Since this is a physical board game (not something you need to print!), you'll be asked for your shipping address after purchase.
  • The price includes free international shipping.
