Interesting take on capitalism

Wonderful game. This game feels like it is somewhere in between Monopoly and Catan. A very influential mechanic is the player's ability to have economic interests or influence in companies that other players own the majority of. If you read the description or instructions, this can seem really confusing, but after two short games against the averagely skilled computer-controlled players, the mechanics reveal a different perspective than you are used to rather than a complex one that you are incapable of understanding. You'll be thinking in terms of shares instead of cash; sabatoging companies you own stakes in to rid the majority stakeholder of capital. The game design expresses some intriguing inherent tendencies of capitalist expansion.
Now for feature requests:
Please make the end game triggers optional. I would get so much more enjoyment out if this game if I could make it last longer. I understand that this was originally a boardgame for people who might not want to play for long periods of time, but it's an iphone game now. The game here is most likely going to be a solitary experience. Ignore the precedent and embrace the new medium. Make the three states that end the game optional.
That's a polite request. Love the game, it's really fun and thought-provoking.

Great game, good app.

I Initially gave this five stars but I have reduced that due to the lack of online or multi device play. Pass and play is lame.
Also I would like to see more AI options. Still worth $.99 but I would gladly pay $5-$6 if changes were made.

Great game, a few flaws

Over all, one of the more enjoyable games on the app store. However when a match ends I always feel disappointed.

Problems:

- Games are too short
- Scoring is arbitrary, assets should play a role (extending game length would fix this issue)
- initial bidding is kind of binary strategy wise.

Great game you should buy 100%. Verry fun!
