Relive the Financial Crisis Four Years Later through Collapse! — The Commemorative Game of the Financial Crisis

Relive the Financial Crisis Four Years Later

SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 2013 AT 01:15PM

The bull market turned four this weekend, and in honor of the anniversary what better way is there to relive the events of the Financial Crisis than by having a little fun.  One way is through Collapse! — The Commemorative Game of the Financial Crisis.


Collapse! is the commemorative game that takes a lighthearted approach to the very serious events of the financial crisis.  The game uses a Jenga like format and allows players to relive the tension, anxiety, and second-guessing characterized by this crazy period in history.  While global markets currently find themselves in a frenzy over the debt crisis in Europe, Collapse! allows investors to relive and reminisce about our own “bad old days.”

In the game of Collapse!, each of the 54 blocks represents one of the factors or events that helped create the crisis or hasten its escalation.  What better way to relive the financial turmoil than to grab some family or friends and try to build your own financial fortress that’s too big to fail!  After stacking the blocks (the included instructions provide a useful frame), players take turns pulling them out one by one until the entire structure collapses!

The 54 blocks in each commemorative game fit nicely into a sleek wooden box that makes an excellent display at your office, your home study, or even your child’s toy room.  Collapse! is an excellent gift for clients, friends, or family members, and serves as a great collector’s item and history lesson of the financial crisis.
