"Crunch, The Game For Utter Bankers" is a card game for anyone with a distinctly gallows sense of humor:

"[It] allows you to experience the upside of down. Placed in the role of a global banking CEO, you have to juggle the conflicting demands of your ailing bank and your flourishing bank account. ... Each player starts the game with a number of Assets in their bank, a small workforce and a few Trust cards. Trust is essential to your bank’s survival. Not only will capitalism falter without it, but each Trust card hides on the reverse a potential Government Bailout."

This is the latest product from the fine warped folks at TerrorBull Games and -- judging by the website -- it is as bitter and cynical as their last number: War On Terror: The Board Game.

"An average game sees you bribing your way out of government investigations, fending off aggressive takeovers and forcing debt onto the unsuspecting public. Meanwhile, reward your hard work by taking inappropriate bonuses and -- when no one’s looking -- brazenly embezzling your bank’s own funds and hiding them about your person. Crunch is unique in that to win, players are coaxed into cheating."
