Did you ever play the old computer game “Lemonade Stand” on the Apple IIe computer? Well we did and we loved it! It was a simple, fun, educational game that really influenced a lot of people growing up in the early 80s. We have been trying for a couple of years to recreate the simplicity yet realistic feel of this classic game. We wanted to recreate this experience in a card game, yet keep the supply and demand calculations and complex math to a minimum. Designer Trevor Cram was able to create what we hope you will agree is a simple, unique game that allows young and old alike to participate in their own business of setting prices, resupplying inventory and making advertising decisions. Each of these decisions will affect the profits or losses each player realizes, coupled with external forces like the weather and other players special action cards.
In the end the player with the most money after seven turns will win and become the envy of the other would-be entrepreneurs. This game plays 2-4 players in about 20 minutes and no two games are alike. Will you suffer bad luck from poor weather or will you play too aggressively or conservatively? Find out as you venture back to your wonder years gone by and compete with the other kids on the block to build the best Lemonade Stand.
