I can't say I'm surprised. These clowns claimed that they were going to open a plant, hire 1500 workers, AND build housing for the employees all in a town with only 2000 residents. Who did they think they were kidding?

Has anybody here played any of their games? Judging from their website all their games seem to be just one game re-themed for different sports.

I've never even HEARD of them or their games!

Incidentally, I'd like to offer ALL of you jobs at my new game company, OGMA GAMES INTERNATIONAL! I'm in the process of constructing the facility on Fiji and I'm hoping to employ 73,000 employees (and provide housing for all) in order to produce my new game "WATCH THE PAINT DRY" designed by none other than legendary game designer Phil McCracken!

Anyone interested? Anyone???

Wow, that's weird. On what planet would any new board game company need 1500 employees? Sounds like either a scam artist or someone totally out of touch with reality.

I'd back the designer up on that; what a team we'd make.

They were kidding the people who invested in the company.

I have some sympathy for anyone who lost money in this scheme, but not much. Anyone who did not hear the screeching warning bells going off had to be willfully naive.
