Ares Games is bringing Hab & Gut to the English market, further proving Vasel's Law (our fearless leader requires mention of him in every 10 news articles written, I don't make the rules).  The Rich and the Good is designed by Carlo A. Rossi and has artwork from Michael Menzel

The Rich and the Good is a stock market game, where players are stock brokers during the industrial revolution. Each player has a little bit of information about how the markets will change. Players are trying to manipulate the market in order to collect the most money, while also donating enough money to charity in order to appear like good people. The player who donates the least to charity by the end of the game automatically loses. Otherwise, the winner is the player with the most money. 

The Rich and the Good plays 3-5 players, 45 minutes, and ages 10+. The best release date right now January 2023, though this is subject to change.
