Blatant Plug – Tulipmania 1637

(Begin Blatant Plug)

I’ve designed my first board game, called Tulipmania 1637. It’s a stock market game that replicates the bubble market that was in 1637 regarding the price of tulip bulbs that almost destroyed the dutch economy. I made the game after visiting the Tulip museum in Amsterdam and learning all about Tulipmania, and wanted to pass along the lesson of how bubble markets occur and the role of unethical people in these markets. You are one of these less-than-ethical investors trying to take advantage of the innocent Tulip Buyers.. and each other.

It’s planned to be published in October (and as soon as I get a copy, I’ll make a Blatant Plug Video about it.)

But, if you want to explore it, the publishers have created a version that you can try online for free until the game comes out.

You can read the rules and download the software to try the game at
