Build a business empire and manipulate the government to make the most money.

Corporate America is a political satire board game about corporate influence over government. The game uses humor (a lot of it) to address otherwise dull and serious issues. At the same time, Corporate America is deeply strategic and extremely engaging, featuring unique negotiation and bidding mechanics. It’s great for gamers, political junkies, people who like to laugh, or groups of all three.

SFGATE Recommends:

A lot of wit and imagination went into this puckish satire on our plutocratic - I mean democratic - system of government. Created as a Kickstarter project by Oakland game designer Teale Fristoe, the game embodies the revolving door of industry and politics. Players try to maximize their cash as each turn cycles through Wall Street (build a business), Main Street (attract consumers), the Campaign Trail (spend on politicians who will benefit their business) and Capitol Hill (the presidency goes to whoever got the most contributions). The game tends to sacrifice a little depth for the sake of humor, but there are some genuine strategic decisions at work - and the jokes and design are top-notch

    So glad to make more money with Corporate America!

    Posted by Brandon Raasch on Nov 16th 2018

    I discovered this wonderful game a few years ago and still love it! So, when the Guilded Edition hit the scene in time to lampoon our latest politics, I had to get involved!

    Imagine a US Civics class that taught you real politics; selling yourself to corporations, suppressing legislation that hurts your agenda and negotiating with millions to ensure your government is focused on your profit margins, and you are playing Corporate America!

    Bluffing, graft, hoarding wealth and spending it to buy the Oval Office. This is the game Monopoly wants to be! The Guilded Edition adds beautiful components and content updated for our 45th President.
