About this game

Invest or die! Investor Island is the first turn-based strategy board game driven by the real-life ups and downs of the stock market. Try your hand at different strategies to win against your opponent: control the board’s most valuable tiles, pick the best-performing stocks, or blast away with fireballs and lightning bolts. Much more than a fantasy stock investing game, Investor Island mixes board game strategy with tower defense tactics and tycoon investing game elements.

Go head to head with opponents as you use profits and losses from real-life companies like Amazon, Nike, Facebook, and Rite Aid to gain bonuses and affect the outcomes of your games. If your stock picks perform well, you'll please the almighty Stock Gods and earn extra Gems to expand your influence, purchase Spells, and upgrade your Statues to take down your foe. You could be punished if your stocks do poorly, so choose wisely!

GAME MODES – Play 1-on-1 with random players from around the world, friends, or AI opponents.
- Live PVP: Battle in a turn-based synchronous match using real-time stock data and play until one player is victorious.
- Turn-based PVP: Perfect for anyone on the go—battle in an asynchronous match based on stock market data from a surprise year in recent history. Your power is fueled by the historical performance of the stocks in your collection. Take the necessary time to think about the next crushing blow you’re going to deliver to your opponent—play throughout the day!

Challenge opponents on multiple game boards as you race to build your Statues, control access to Treasure Chests that hold Spells and Gems, take over Gem Tiles, and cut your rival off from their support.

Earn Fool’s Gold to grow your collection of stocks, giving you more choices as the market changes, and level up your stocks to give them greater powers. Manage your portfolio to dominate in any situation!

Collect hot stocks and build your portfolio as you climb the leaderboard to become a legend on Investor Island.

NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET IS NECESSARY, but it can be helpful. It will take both game strategy and investment strategy to climb the leaderboard, but as you play, you’ll surely learn a thing or two.


Investor Island is free to download and play, however, it includes an in-game currency called Fool’s Gold, which can be acquired as you progress through the game or by purchasing with real money. Purchases of Fool’s Gold require using a credit card or other forms of payment associated with your account. You won’t be asked to re-enter your credit card number or PIN. If you don’t want to use this feature, please disable in-app purchases in your device’s settings.

This game also requires a network connection.

They promptly replied to my review (second paragraph) and fixed the issue. I have been playing now for a couple of weeks and really enjoy the game! A lot of different strategies can be played and the game dynamics keep the interest and challenge levels competitive. Highly recommend! (Fixed! Thank you!) Won't let me sign up. I like the concept and have enjoyed the little bit I've played as a guest. Please help with getting me signed up. Either give me an error code 404 or continuously loads.

Love the app. Unfortunately I can't open right now. It has a banner telling me to update the app but when I press the button it takes me to Google play and only has an 'Open' or an 'Uninstall' option. If I press open, it takes me back to the update button within Investor Island and continues to be a vicious circle. Issue was resolved and the app is great! Thanks for the quick response and solution.

Super fun turn based game. It resembles a more complex version of checkers wherein you can upgrade your pieces. Very immersive gameplay with a variety of styles to play. Online play for me took a while to adjust, but I now enjoy every aspect of it. Online help is offered and appreciated.
