David Gardner and The Motley Fool proudly present INVESTOR ISLAND, the first board game that's driven by the real-life ups and downs of the stock market!

Whether you’re a seasoned stock jock or you’ve never even thought about the market, Investor Island offers many ways to best your opponents. Maneuver to control the game board’s most valuable tiles. Pick the best-performing stocks. Or just blast away with fireballs and lightning bolts.

Battle friends or the computer as you derive your power from gains and losses by actual publicly traded companies – Amazon, Nike, Facebook, Rite Aid, and many, many more. If your stocks perform well, you'll please the mighty Stock Gods and earn gems to expand your influence, purchase spells, and battle your foes.

Collect hot stocks and build your portfolio as you climb the leaderboard to become an Investor Island legend.

Then choose your stocks wisely – power is bestowed upon those who select the biggest winners … and punishes those who anger the Stock Gods, earning their unpredictable and devastating wrath.

CLASSIC BOARD GAME STRATEGY: Challenge opponents on multiple game boards as you race to build your statues, control access to treasure chests, monopolize scoring tiles, and cut your rival off from their support.

BUILD A MASSIVE PORTFOLIO: Earn Fool’s Gold to grow your collection of stocks, giving you more choices as the market changes, and level up your stocks to assign them greater powers. Manage your portfolio to dominate in any situation!

BATTLE BASED ON HISTORY: Hone your skills by battling an opponent or the computer in a turn-based game based on a real-life stock market returns from a year in history. Your power is fueled by the historical performance of the stocks in your collection.

REAL-TIME PVP: For the first time ever, a mobile app game that changes in real time based on the moment-to-moment actions of the stock market. Battle friends from all over the world in a strategy challenge that's based on the movements of the market, not just a roll of the dice. More than just a fantasy stock investing game, Investor Island mixes board game strategy with tower defense tactics and tycoon investing game elements.

MULTIPLAYER OR SOLITARY MODES: Play versus the AI or challenge your friends in head-to-head or multiplayer action.

FOR GAMERS AND INVESTORS ALIKE: No previous knowledge of the stock market is needed, but it can be helpful. It will take both game strategy and investment strategy to climb the leaderboard!

And everyone might just learn a little about the power of investing in the stock market.

- Players will no longer receive cards of a stock if the stock is maxed out at level 10.

Been playing for a isle...

I’ve been playing since this app came out and it has provided me with dozens of hours of splendid entertainment, excellent competition, glorious victory, deep-felt heartache, and minor bouts of anxiety. Not going to lie, I’ve lost sleep over the “Live” gameplay on concern that my towers and bases would be raided overnight... but I digress... the concept of the game is a great mix between strategy and luck from the whims of the stock market. What you get from the gameplay entirely depends on your mentality.

Gameplay Tip: If you find yourself regularly lagging the competition, try “mimicking” your opponents as you play through games to get the hang of it.

Fix this and perfection

This game can be like a chess match one minute and shoots and ladders the next. The developers were super original with the concept but there is one thing that needs to be fixed. The 2 day cool down after using a stock in battle should be limited to 1 day. Otherwise I play a few rounds and I’ve used almost all of my stocks and have to wait a while to use them again. Please fix this so we all can play more often.

Thanks for the review and glad you're enjoying the game. Also thanks for the feedback regarding cooldowns. We have cooldowns in place mainly to prevent players from using the same stocks over and over again. As you continue to play, you'll unlock more stocks and have more options for games. All that said, we'll keep your feedback in mind for future versions.

Robot always more powerful than you

I spent a few days addicted to this game. Researching the best stocks to play for each level based on how they did during the year that was set, earning points, leveling up, trying different strategies, etc. However, the game is FAR too hard. The robot gets way more moves than you every round so it is not an even match. They also win the “advancing time” race 9 times out of 10 so you don’t get enough spells, you never have enough cards to upgrade and that parts extremely confusing anyway. The most frustrating part is how many more gems the robot has than you to make way more moves AND cuts through your pawns and destroy your temples like butter. I usually like a “Hard” setting so its challenging, but this is absurd.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear about your experience! In one-on-one matches, both players start each turn (except for the very first turn) with an equal number of gems, plus whatever gems their stocks have earned between turns. It sounds like the AI picked some high-performing stocks, which can definitely make the match more challenging! However, the AI's stock choices are partly random, so it won't always have the best stocks for the year. If you haven't tried ranked duels yet, those are a great way to level up and upgrade your stocks, because the rewards are much greater, win or lose!
