Fight the Invisible Fist of The Free Market!
Inequality has skyrocketed! It’s now the highest in over a century. The rich get richer, and the poor get poorer while the middle class disappears.
“It does what it sets out to do a little too well.”
–Jamie Thomas Durbin, The Mad Welshman
The Invisible Fist is an absurd rpg-esque card game with random elements and a socioeconomic dark comedy pitting people from different social classes together in a fight against inequality and the Invisible Fist – narrated by a big-mouthed sports commentator.
“Personally, I think we need more games like this to help us turn a more critical eye on our own world.“
- 3 characters, each with a different set of tools and challenges
- 150+ Cards allowing you to Work, Relax and Rest – Rebalance your life!

- Random elements – Each character’s starting cards are randomly chosen from a pool, making sure no two playthroughs are the same
