Will your strategy be right?

Do you have the will or luck to embark on this uniquely, nerve-racking ghostly quest to out-Scrooge Scrooge and other Scrooges? 

The strategy and gameplay embraces many of the storylines in Dicken’s books. The themes of money, wealth, power, poverty, crime and punishment are central to Dickens’ work, and these are mirrored in this game. There is a hidden depth of strategy which players will need to understand and master otherwise they will be ‘Scrooged’! 

Play Scrooge at your own risk and may the ghosts be with you!
