In Daytrader, you travel around the board, taking jobs, making money, moving up the corporate ladder, and investing your new wealth wisely. Or at least as wisely as you can in the ever-changing market, where highs and lows are determined by “volatile market” cards, and fortunes can turn in an instant.
Surprisingly, this decidedly analog game was designed by a computer animator, Samir Lyons. Samir also follows the stock market, and he was surprised that there weren’t any popular board games dedicated to investing, let alone responsible investing. So, he created Daytrader as a half-cooperative, half-competitive race to retirement. And unlike similar games you’re never entirely out of the running. Even if you go bankrupt, you can always build your money back up and stay in the game.
The board is sharp-looking, with a simple, deco-inspired artwork and it’s easy enough for kids as young as 10 to learn and play. Best of all, it’s a game that rewards smart and responsible play, while entertaining just about anybody.
