“In November 2002, Sackson's massive game collection was auctioned off. ...one of the lots I won... Included... the rules for ‘Piece of the Action’. It was simple to create the components (cards), so I did and played it a handful of times. ‘Piece of the Action’ is an excellent game, well deserving of development and publication.”

Video Review from Board to Death



I'm the Boss! The Card Game is a game of creating and manipulating a deal so you can get the biggest "piece of the action". If the cards don’t go your way, spoil a deal and frustrate your opponents by turning the deal from a big profit into a big loss. Through cunning deal-making, and favoring your “Cousins” (and by throwing in some guile and backstabbing too), acquire the most money to prove once and for all that you are "The Boss"!

The game plays in a series of rounds with each round being a separate negotiation for a money-making deal. While playing cards, players can negotiate to encourage other players to make plays that are favorable to them. After a fixed number of such deals (rounds), the game ends and the player with the most money is the winner.

I’m the Boss! The Card Game is based on an unpublished prototype called Piece of the Action by Sid Sackson.
