Description Edit | History

Business Strategy is a management game where players have to compete for the resources needed to produce their finished goods. They then compete in the marketplace to sell their goods. The winner is the last player to be in business.

Games can also end by player agreement, as it is possible for all players to establish stable companies, particularly if everyone plays a cautious game.

More Information Edit | History

From "The Avalon Hill General Index and Company History, 1952-1980"

Business Strategy (1973)
Designed by Thomas Shaw
Development by Don Greenwood

Actually a sophisticated remake of MANAGEMENT for a new bookcase package. This version sold no better than its predecessor which is unfortunate because it is an excellent game.
