Death By Depreciation

Death By Depreciation

Sir Maxwell Moneybags, avaricious Finance Director of Phatal Pharmaceuticals, has been found murdered. Poisoned in his afternoon cup of tea with one of his own products. But who in the finance hierarchy decided to write him off?

Allow your department the fun of bumping off the boss and solving his murder. Fatal finance, crooked accountants, and murderous money make this rollicking murder perfect for finance away days & team nights out.

This game will be particularly appreciated by anyone who has ever been frustrated by the SAP business information system! And by playing it you will also learn the alternative fundamental accounting concepts!
