The package will include a map board, six differently-colored player pieces, three dice, gameplay cards, sheets of in-game money, and a special roulette device that also acts as a turn counter with adjustable year and month markers.
Players will have to option of simulating the gameplay of the popular Switch title, including encounters against the God of Poverty. However, the board game will also let players enjoy other modes such as a simple race from the start to the finish of the board.
