Sid Sackson is famous in the gaming world for creating a myriad of brilliant game designs and 'I'm the Boss' is certainly one of his very best. This popular classic was first published in German as 'Kohle, Kies & Knete' back in 1994 and was nominated for game of the year (Spiel des Jahres Nominee 1994).

'I'm the Boss' has been out of print for nearly a decade but is now available for the first time in English. This English reprinting includes all new art, rule translations for German, Spanish and French languages and additional 'house rules' created by loyal Sackson fans over the years. If you enjoy a free wheeling game full of turbulent negotiations and fast-paced deals, this game is for you.

Genoa
This is a reprint of the classic
Traders of Genoa. It has a larger box and completely new graphics, but the important elements of gameplay remain the same.
