"Wall Street Raider" (For Windows) is one of the oldest games on the Internet, published as a DOS version well before the World Wide Web, in 1986, and continually updated and improved before and since it moved to Windows in 2001. The current version (9.75), a major upgrade, was released in January, 2023. It is a sophisticated corporate finance game where you play as a billionaire, emulating a Warren Buffett or Carl Icahn. Our other financial game, "Speculator" (latest release in August, 2023) is a more recent spin-off, using the same economic/stock market engine, but played as a small investor with only $100,000 to invest and speculate in stocks, bonds, ETFs, options, and commodity and stock index futures, while seeking to build a retirement fund in 30 years. "Wall Street Raider" and "Speculator" continue to be widely played and enjoyed, with a global following in 118 countries and territories, from Antarctica to Zimbabwe. Created by Ronin Software of Ivins, Utah, these downloadable games are fun and educational. The "software only" version of Wall Street Raider sells for $24.95 U.S., while a "Full Package" version that includes a very extensive Strategy Manual, about 300 pages if printed out from the HTML file, is priced slightly higher, at $29.95. Or purchase the Manual only, for $11.95.
Game inventor Michael D Jenkins, J.D., CPA (retired), is a computer programmer, Harvard Law grad, retired tax attorney and "Big 4" CPA, former economic consultant, and a best-selling author of business books. Jenkins, who grew up as an avid fan of the classic real estate game, Monopoly, began developing a corporate board game while he was at Harvard Law School in 1967, which eventually morphed into a CP/M version of Wall Street Raider on his first personal computer, a Kaypro, in 1984, and was first published as an MS-DOS version by his book publisher PSI Research in 1986. He says the countless hours spent figuring out the mechanics of complex corporate transactions gave him a huge edge in his years practicing as an attorney and CPA, when putting together billion dollar mergers and spin-offs in the real world. He has put everything he learned over the years into "Wall Street Raider" and "Speculator," making them as realistic as possible, thinking the games would simply provide good entertainment, but has been astonished at the number of long-time players who have grown up playing WSR and translated what they learned into successful careers as stock and option traders, hedge fund managers, and investment analysts, or just had success in their personal investments.
