Game Description:

Private Sector™

             -- is the only business play by mail/modem (PBM/M) game on the market today. In this simulation, you pit your common sense, survival skills, and entrepreneur abilities against 11 other vicious “competitors”. The game is only 12 turns in length (i.e.: closed ended in gaming jargon). The top 4 positions receive rewards; the remainder grovel.

            Private Sector™ is the ONLY game that promotes two intentions. The first is leisure time recreation--this is what every common game in the industry delivers. However, Private Sector™ also provides something that NO OTHER GAME dares to deliver--real life skills! Private Sector™ began as a business simulation at Central Texas Junior College to provide budding entrepreneurs the skills to manage the “virtual corporations” of the ‘90s. You truly learn “how” to manage--to be the “boss”--of a corporation. This “game” equips you with the skills to manage your own business. When you finish a game of Private Sector™ you have far more than simple “bragging rights” of brave and bold deeds, clever maneuvers and sterling diplomacy. You also have true business management skills, eleven other potential business partners of which whose skills you’ve tested, numerous worksheets and essays to guide you in establishing your OWN business, and the firm confidence that you CAN DO IT!!!! Oh, did I mention that you had fun doing it? You will. . .sign up now.
