Bigwig Games, based in Austin, Texas, is the brainstorm of Gary Hoover, serial entrepreneur. Gary founded the first chain of giant bookstores, BOOKSTOP (bought by Barnes & Noble) and business information company Hoover’s (bought by Dun & Bradstreet). He has been a lifelong student of industries, and started making board games to play with his friends by the age of 12. By 14 these were realistic industry games: movies, TV networks, department stores, Indycar racing. And eventually games that mimicked the entire economy, or the Presidential Election Process. Bigwig's goal is to model every industry we can think of – our starter list is over 90 industries, including election simulations – and turn them into the most exciting business/economic strategy games on the market! We expect to do this over a period of many years, gradually evolving into a fully integrated global economy, all using real industry and economy data.
