Launched today – JTN’s Fair Tax Mark boardgame

I am pleased to announce that the JTN have, in conjunction with Researches for Taxes UK,  produced a fantastic new board-game called “The Fair Tax Mark” game.

It is a simple but very addictive game.

You take 25 companies and then roll a dice for each of three categories: UK tax rate, transparency and use of tax havens.

You write down the score on the dice minus one, giving a score out of five for each category. This gives a total out of fifteen.

Alternatively, the Deluxe version provides you with an excel spreadsheet which generates random numbers. This provides a quicker game, but is less fun in my opinion.

Each player then publishes their scores on a website. The winner is the first person who gets Margaret Hodge to drag one of their companies before the Public Accounts Committee citing your scores as “research”.

So here are my Fair Tax Mark scores!

  1. Are you setting up a company in a low tax country to market this game? I gather this was a very successful strategy with ‘Trivial Pursuits’ TM. Unfortunately,I completely forget the name tax expert who authored this strategy.
