Stock Market Board Game
By Gerry Beggs
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Stock Market is a retro-style board game for the iPad.
Play the Stock Market and you could earn your fortune! With each throw of the dice, you can buy and sell shares, collect dividends and attend stockholder meetings. The winner is the first person to reach the "Winning Net Worth". Several game rules are customizable allowing you to adjust the behaviour of the game and extend or shorten the length of a game.
The stock prices go up or down with each move depending on the square you land on. Remember to buy low, sell high and attend as many stockholder meetings as possible and you could earn your fortune playing the market.
Play against three difficulty levels of AI, other (local) humans or any combination of the two.
Custom board layouts can be added via iTunes.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
Fixed integer overflow when you accumulate more than 4 BILLION shares in one company.
Pretty darn good although I don't know jack about the stock market
I have to say that this I am really impressed with this board game and kicking myself for not buying it 5 months ago when was checking it out before. Seems whatever the minor issues people were talking about before of this game was taking care of in the most recent update. During my few couple of games after purchase not once did I experience a problem on my iPad 3. There are so many different board games available on iOS and am glad to add this to my very small collection of board game apps.
Hope to see some more board games from Mr. Beggs in the near future.
Stock Market Board Game
Not a bad game. The only problem, after many game-play that I have noticed is that I can almost predict the dice roll and where the chip will fall. Chances are that they will fall either where I have to payout or on a near bankrupt square. The probabilities are preset. It becomes frustrating when the dices fall against you, but worse when you can predict that it will on your roll. The dice-fall are set against human players. In other words, it's obvious the computer has been tweaked against the human player. Fix it.
Gerry Beggs did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the original board game. We began playing the original board game in the late 60's and continued for years as a family holiday tradition. Wore out two board games. This is a good old fashioned fun board game, not intending to be a stock market simulation learning tool. Hours of enjoyment for $.99, now
that is a value. One caution...it is addictive.
