Hence, "I'm the Boss" from Face 2 Face games made an earlier-than expected arrival at our home. And even though the game was quite high on our list, on the way home I wondered whether the low price baited me into buying a game that would not even be worth the discounted price - a fear that was fueled further upon reading through the simple rules of the game. The first night of play, however, proved my fears to be unwarranted, and can only be described by one word - FUN.
The game is built for three to six players, although the manual contains rule modifications for a two-player game. Though we had only three players the first night (and had a blast), it was evident that the fun would multiply with each additional player. This proved to be the case as we've grown to 4- and 5- player games.
The first time someone plays, the game seems to start out a bit tepid, but once a couple of deals are made and people are more comfortable with the dealing process, the action can really heat up. What tends to throw some people off at first is the fact that once a deal begins, the game switches from being to turn-based to being opportunity-based, where the negotiations can be chaotic and don't follow a specific pattern.Read more ›
First published in a German edition in 1994, the same year it received a Spiel des Jahres Recommendation, I'm The Boss received wider distribution with the help of an English edition from Face2Face Games in 2003. Another new edition is scheduled to appear in 2012 from Gryphon Games with new graphics on the board and cards.
The basic concept has players working together and against each other to finalize deals that will earn them profits. This process requires intense negotiation, and that's what makes this game a negotiation classic. Be aware that the bargaining can have some cut-throat elements, so players shouldn't take the game too seriously, and this also means that I'm The Boss does require having the right people to be enjoyed. But with the right group - wow - does it ever have the potential to create an incredibly fun experience rarely surpassed! I'm The Boss even works well with non-gamer audiences. Just remember that to be best enjoyed, it is good with 5 players, but best with 6 players. Overall the stellar qualities of I'm The Boss make this a classic Sid Sackson game.

This is a 3-6 player game, running about 60 minutes long. I had never played this game before, and showed this game to a family new to board games. This game was HILARIOUS. The fun is driven by counter card play, I believe classified as "take that" mechanics. I would classify this game slightly above a party game, since it's still a sit down and play game. It's a very light board game.
The only negative I can see playing the game was from running out of cards, and losing "your" investor. This happened to me, and I was out of 3-4 rounds in the game, since the boss card changes player order. Aside from that, this game was awesome.
My actual delivery has a slightly warped box cover art. It has been raining here lately. It is very minor.
This game continues to be hilarious, and multiple games are requested in a single night. It is probably my cousin's favorite game. There is a strong weakness in losing your investor card, but most people realize they should stock up on cards before they open another deal.
