CDS Mess

CDS Mess is a card game about factors that led to the 2008 credit crisis.

In this game, you take on the role of an investment bank, package debt into Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDO) and then sell it to unsuspecting investors. Protect yourself against losses or bet against the health of another bank using Credit Default Swaps (CDS). This game is about maximizing profits no matter what and, when necessary, getting bailed out by the government. In CDS Mess, you too can be Too Big To Fail!

Created by Derek Curry, Jennifer Gradecki, and Devin Wilson.
