Description

Tropical Manipulation is a simultaneous turn-based strategy game in which 1-4 players manipulate an island's economy, government and each other to be crowned the Champion of Capitalism and keep their store open. Players act as managers of new retail franchises (right next to each other) that must compete on profit to determine who will be allowed to stay open. Simultaneous turns result in way less down-time than traditional turn-based games, and increase the tension by building up to resolutions at the end of each turn. A demand system that takes into account all set prices at once pushes players to find the balance between generating huge profits and undercutting each other. Friendships will be destroyed. Employees will be sacrificed. Tropical Manipulation. Get excited.
