The Bailout Game

Pretty neat game these folks came up with.

Heh. I finished at 8,511. Was fun to watch what happened when I let Fannie and Freddie fail.

Tried it again and got 13,100 or so. This time I bailed out Freddie and Fannie (though it was more fun watching the alternative).

I like the part where you draw a card and it says "Bernanke speaks. Stocks down 500." So true!
