Tycoon

Packaging for Sinclair QL Tycoon
Tycoon is a business game devised by Victor Serebriakoff (the then International President of MENSA) and is based on crossword puzzles - up to 6 players can take part at a time, the object being to guess the words in a crossword to sell them to the bank, making as much money as possible.

You can borrow money (subject to interest) to buy specific or random letters from the bank and also invest your hard-earned capital to earn interest.

However, beware that you lose money by putting in incorrect words. Can you become a Tycoon by making more than £10,000 by the end of the game?

This is an interesting game and quite difficult, with plenty of crossword variations (49) to keep you going. Each player can set a different difficulty level.
