Description Edit | History

The world of business is a world of tough situations.
Tough situations demand tough decisions.
You, as a young and ambitious entrepreneur, will struggle for wealth.
In order to gain wealth, you should first create an efficient economic engine.
But the dilemmas will be hard:
Which companies will you acquire and activate first?
Which company's ability is the most appropriate for the early yearʼs economic boost?
Will you manage to create a flexible but also effective decision deck?
Timing is crucial.
Mind what your competitors are doing.
They will try to block your plans.
They will try to steal your resources.
There is no room for error.
There is no time for hesitation.
Open your Briefcase, lay out your business plans and enjoy the game!

Briefcase is a deck-building and resource management boardgame.

In Briefcase, players build their own business empires by acquiring and activating various companies. Each company, once activated, provides the player with some benefits (which are called decisions cards) and a special ability for the rest of the game.

Players start with identical decks of decision cards. Each time one player activates a company, he/she adds to his deck more decision cards. Decision cards give the players various possible actions (like buy/activate/hire/obstacles). The most important is the "buy" action, with which players can either buy a building or a resource from the market.
