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.

Ratings and Reviews
Want to like but...
I loved this game as a kid, so finding it was awesome. But all the other reviews are right. Dice rolls are not random. After 10 games, it's obvious the AI is quite a bit "luckier" at all times.
Example being I get 3for1 and the next two rolls from AI send market down 40 total points making my newly acquired shares practically worthless. Watched it happen twice.
Plenty other examples. Aside from that, gameplay is solid. Hard to see the stock names on the squares though and color coding your portfolio would be helpful.
Fix the randomness of the die rolls and this becomes 5star. Until then, 2 it is.
I know for a fact every single time I am in 2-1 spot, the next dice roll will be “sell all shares”, 1,2, or 3 for 1 spots are a curse. Make dice actually random and I will wear this game out! Just fix the dice! I left review year or so ago with same suggestion. I see I am also not the only one to notice.
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.
