Cards developer Game Studios has released a new game that puts players in the shoes of a CEO as they attempt to solve the world’s most complex financial crisis in a series of card-based board games.
Cards: A Game of Leadership will launch in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and Portugal on April 1.
Players will choose a CEO from four major companies, which include a hedge fund manager, a pharmaceutical company, an investment bank, and a financial services company.
They must decide how to spend money in order to win the game.
Players also will be able to choose their own personality traits, including personality traits like ambition, pragmatism, and competitiveness.
Players can also add and delete cards from the board, while the company’s stock price is also updated to reflect changes in CEO stock prices.
Cards will be free to download and play through their online store.
The game is available to pre-order now, with an initial release planned for May.
Cards is the latest in a long line of card games from Game Studios, which has released dozens of titles since the company was founded in 2012.
A recent addition to the roster is Cardboard Realms, which is also a game about CEO succession.
