Innovative Wealth-building Game to Get Major Upgrade
Small town game inventor is raising funds for publishing a 2nd edition financial game
KALAMAZOO, Mich., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Topp Hogg Games, a young upstart in the table top gaming community, today announced it would be raising funds to develop a 2nd edition financial card game. The company, which prides itself on developing unique economy-based games, will initiate a Kickstarter campaign in March to redesign its initial game offering, Riches or Ruin, titled, "Hogg Wild for Wealth." This first edition game debuted in 2015 in limited production. Topp Hogg Games believes it can incorporate excellent suggestions received from player feedback and from on-line reviews written by prominent gaming magazines.
"I am committed to produce the best financial game of its kind," says owner of Topp Hogg Games, Richard Parker. "Redesigning the game will offer the gamer a much more exciting and aesthetically appealing gaming experience."
The company began developing a series of economic games in 2009. By 2014, already numbering five in various stages of development, it was Riches or Ruin, "Hogg Wild for Wealth" that became the best choice to introduce to the gaming community as a one-of-a-kind money game. The investing concepts for building wealth, although many say are educational, are presented to players in a fun and engaging way.
Jason Sweezer, a Community Builder with LifeLeadership, put it this way, "The card game Riches or Ruin not only provided our homeschooling family with hours of entertainment, but also introduced basic concepts of stocks, bonds, and real-estate. This isn't normally the kind of thing that is easy to teach youth without expensive mistakes."
The company implemented a tiered approached to learning game mechanics. Four levels of play ease new players into the basic mechanics of portfolio management. As they advance to higher levels, player interaction and random financial events are incorporated into gameplay.
Jim Croyle, COO of J&M Consultants, had this to say, "One of the most appealing aspects of this game is the many levels of play. Being able to customize the gaming experience has led to hours of family fun."
The Company anticipates rolling out the upgraded game by July 2016, ahead of the September GrandCon event in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This event will mark the first opportunity to show off Riches or Ruin to the public since its inception.
