The story of an event is the back-bone of the game.

True to the video game of the same name, Mario jumps over a number of barrels and has a chance of defeating the infamous Donkey Kong. Game features include a board and dice.

A detailed recreation of the investigation of fraudulent promoters who use false identities to deceive potential customers, by lying about the quality and value of their goods. This game actively demonstrates the foolishness of an unfettered free-market which allows fraudsters to lie and cheat decent folk out of their money.

This game covers real life criminal cases and allows you the player to take the role of judge. Cases include fraudulent promotion of goods by bogus testimonials from fake customers, making lying claims about the product with intent to deceive honest people into buying the goods on false pretencies.

The game includes the ability to make laws to limit the unfettered free-market that encourages shysters and crooks from cheating honest customers with using multiple fake identities to deceive them.

One player takes the role of deceiver as the other players try to work out which of many fake identities is the real person. The deceiver tries to stay in the game long enough to plug his products in the hope that honest customers will be tricked into spending their money based on his false claims.

Try the variant in which extra rules are introduced to stop cheats and liars using the unfettered free-market to deceive customers by creating multiple bogus testimonials.

An educational game which teaches the players the pitfalls of a totally free market. Without any form of control, players are allowed to falsely advertise their goods by making up numerous fake identities. They then use these bogus identities to plug their products in the hope of deceiving honest customers into buying the goods based upon the false promotion.

Of course, everyone loses as 'doctors' turn out to be quacks, 'medicine' turns out to be sugared water, perpetual motion machines turn out to be fake and 'historical recreations of natural disaters' turn out to be rubbish games.

Players quickly realise that by allowing marketeers to make false claims by imaginary customers, the free market becomes corrupt and money and enterprise are wasted. In the second round, angry customers call for regulation of the market to drive out cheats and liars and so everyone will prosper.
