How to Become a Billionaire
Billionaire Tycoon the new board game. Monopoly updated for the new millennium.
Two entrepreneurs from London’s prestigious Mayfair business district are launching a new exclusive board game at Harrods and online called Billionaire Tycoon
In this unique and thrilling board game they aim to share ideas, skills and strategies used by some of richest and most successful people in the country, which could change the way you think and act forever.
Billionaire Tycoon is one of the most anticipated board games to be released this year - at Harrods and online from 30th September. The board game was created by two Londoners, Seth Surya and Shameek Upadhya, to encourage more entrepreneurship around the world.
"Co-creator Seth Surya says the game has a didactic purpose which is more important than ever in a tough financial climate: ‘We always wanted to share the skills, secrets and know-how to become seriously business savvy, while having fun. Many people assume entrepreneurs are allergic to recessions, but they’re times of tremendous opportunity and growth.’
The regular version of the game is available from Harrods and www.billionairetycoon.co.uk, but – as befits tycoons and would-be tycoons – there is a luxury version. Made from Swedish super-car hide (as used on Lamborghinis) and Italian leather, with nickel-plated playing pieces and black-suede lined dice cups, this will sell for £5,000
"Combining the world domination of Risk with the supreme strategising needed in real-life business, Billionaire Tycoon allows you to deal, steal and swap your way to the top. For a board game, it is actually quite realistic, gradually building up from small beginnings to become a tycoon, leveraging your assets, taking risks and trying to outwit your competitors. It even involves real-life cultural differences and geopolitics, with military coups on the menu for the unwary. Billionaire Tycoon has all the pleasures and pains of the entrepreneur's life, and is a tremendous amount of fun."
