Christmas Gift Of The Year — The Bailout Game

Think about it as monopoly with taxpayers' money :)
Homeschooling parents, Shari and Jordy Sopourn, have developed an award-winning game called Bailout The Game. The game, a strategic satire of the Federal government’s handling of the current financial crisis, has already received the Toy Man's(TM) Seal of Approval, eco-Recognition(TM) Seal, Award of Excellence and eChoice(TM) Award.

What is the object of the game?
You are the Chief Financial Officer of a Bank; your institution is hanging on by a thread. You must reach Bailout Bank before it is too late. So, you take a chance and follow the money trail. Don't think this is going to be easy. You have to earn this Bailout! Along the way you will be forced to undermine the competition, endure the uncertainty of the stock market, avoid hostile takeovers, deal with the instability of the housing market and your bank may even be forced to take a bank holiday. Be the Bank, Lose Billions, Get a Bailout! Bailout The Game
The game itself costs $30 US.

Maybe we should develop a Canadian version for the Bailout game? There, instead of banks, we'll have the auto sector, the unions as well as government agencies whose primary goal is to advance Liberal social engineering... Considering that overspending on the Federal level alone is expected to remain way over $70B even after all the "stimulus" programs expire, it's about time for the Canadian version of Bailout The Game, called Sponsorship The Game.
