Wongamania: Banana Economy 2nd Edition
Singapore, 9th July 2019 Capital Gains Studio is proud to announce the launch of the second edition of the best-selling financial boardgame – Wongamania: Banana Economy with more visually attractive graphic design, new mechanics, a new educational guide and a Chinese - English duo edition.
“Thanks to the popularity of our first edition, we decided to launch the 2nd edition with many upgrades,” said Wongamania Creator, Xeo Lye. “Other than game balancing tweaks, enhanced graphic designs and a whole new educational guide, we have included a brand new game mechanic where players get to draft cards from an open set of cards. This will add an additional layer of strategy, which enhances the gameplay experiences tremendously.”
Economic Lessons from Wongamania: Banana Economy
While everyone loves money, most people hate learning about finance and economics. This irony is a result of all the thick tome of financial jargons, formulas and charts that many presumed that they have to master to be proficient in economics and investing. Capital Gains Studios is challenging and changing that status quo through their flagship board game, Wongamania: Banana Economy.
A game will see you learning how to juggle different asset classes to maximize your income in good and bad times by depicting an economic cycle including 4 different segments: Recession. Recovery, Growth and Stagnancy. During each stage of the economic cycle, you have to allocate your assets most effectively, through diversification or focus investing. Meanwhile, you can sabotage your opponents using life events such as having a baby or defend yourself by getting protected with insurance.
In the second edition of Wongamania: Banana Economy, the new educational guide would provide you an insight of the various personal finance and investment concepts that have been designed into the game. It also serves as a design roadmap how Capital Gains Studio is able to gamify complex real-life economic scenarios into a fun and educational board game.
Other than the educational guide, various improvements have been designed to make the game better. For example, a new card drafting mechanic has also been introduced to allow players to have more choices to make a strategic play during their turn and the powers on many cards have been tweaked. The game art is also given a face-lift with an entirely new set of graphic design, improving the overall feel and look of the game.
