The object of this game is to protect yourself from an overreaching government that is trying to take over banks, automobile manufacturing companies and even small businesses. Be careful, you may get sick and the game is over when you need a certain medical procedure that is currently on the rationed list for your age. Each time around the board you will be dispensed an additional supply of pain pills.
One small caveat: You have only the money that you can bring to the game. Your opponent has a money printing press.
So, you don't want to play? Too bad, you're already in the game!
