Very fun game, if a bit easy, played it way too much, finished way under budget several times. There's an addictive "one more round" kind of quality to this game, easy to learn, rounds are fast so there's not much punishment for experimenting and failing, never used the chance option though.

Nice and addictive game. Is there a extended version (more tasks, more weeks, more persons, more events, more dependencies between tasks, ...)? Also taking into account failed projects in the results.

If you engage people who are all slow, the chances of not completing the project tasks on time are slim, therefore you need to include competent and fast people.

This game is so addictive, once you've understood the basics, you'll always win. Assign the fast worker (Kathy) to the Project tasks
Asssign average or lower cost workers on the other tasks (John, Vicky, Ann, Jim) Don't bother with the others, if you don't have 1 fast + 2 average/low cost, just refresh the page
Use Lady Luck, the benefits are higher than the risks, if you're running late due to a bad event, just swap out slowed workers with faster ones.
Guaranteed success under budget.
