A little bit about how this all started...
Name is Vince Pike and for the past 30 years or so I have developed,
produced and marketed computer games and software. I felt it was time
for a change and decided to focus my efforts into creating board games,
something a little more family orientated. As a child I adored opening
up the latest board game with my family at Christmas or during the
holidays or those special times when distant family came to visit. This
is something that I feel is missing when it comes to computer games,
sure they’re great fun, I won’t deny that but I believe the
most memorable ‘games nights’ are when family and friends
get together to play a boardgame around the kitchen table.
Some months ago I decided to put my knowledge of all things digital into
something more solid, something more hands on, and during past year or
so I have been developing a new concept for a board game that's a bit
different to your normal board game... Essentially when starting
there's no initial board, players build the board as they play using
Hexagon Pieces, creating a web of routes to take as they progress.
My unique concept for the board means that i can develop different genres of boardgame based
on my hexagon idea. So my intention overtime is to create a number of
different themed board games ranging from financial to horror and
fantasy, and the first to be developed is a financial game based around the internet.

About the Game...
As the title of the game suggests, .COM BATTLES is all about buying from and
selling to other players and along the way hindering their chances of
succeeding. Don’t by all means feel bad about this, for
this is exactly what they will also be doing to you. Business is
business after all so be shrewd be calculating and become a successful
Entrepreneur and Market leader.
Landing on a BUY box results you having to hand over some of your
earnings to another player. Whist landing on the SELL box ensure
another player hands over some much needed cash to you.
You can sabotage other players by stopping successful sales, leaving
them bad feedback and stealing their hexagon board pieces, making it
harder for them to build up their cash reserves, gaining five-star
feedback and returning to the finish to complete the game.
Players need to have gained 5-stars and used all their hexagon board
pieces before returning to the center of the game. If a player runs out
of hexagon board pieces they can either make use of other players path
or restrict other players by removing one of their hexagon board pieces
and making use of them themself either by buying them or using a
‘It Doesn't Pay to be nice in Business’ card.
