Just like most board games, players can roll dice and move their board pieces around the board and try to win. The entire theme is based on social media marketing, and gaining followers. According to Tank, creator of Influencers in the Wild, there’s a ton of fun while playing.
If you have a love/hate relationship with influencer culture, then you are going to love this game. Ages: 17+ (unless you don't mind explaining what an OnlyFans account is to a 12 year old).
When the sharks started asking about the company’s sales numbers, Tank disappointed them by explaining that his company had only sold 1,500 units. Kevin O’Leary called it “terrible”, and all of the other sharks were also fairly disappointed after hearing that.
One board game unit is developed for around $5.00, and sold at a retail price point of just under $30.00. While the sharks agreed that the margins were good, they still believed that the lack of sales would be a cause for concern.
All of the sharks began dropping out for the same reason. They agreed that the company sales were simply not high enough to justify a $5 million valuation. Without any offers, Tank was forced to leave without a deal. What happened next? Keep reading our Influencers in the Wild update to find out!
