About the game
Store-Race is a MicroGame in which the player must deliver casks of beer as fast as possible to the customer. But the delivery time from factory to customer is too long and therefore the player must use storage space to temporarily store the casks of beer.
Which strategy will the player choose? More casks with high costs for storage or less casks with higher penalty costs. Maybe the player wants to use a central warehouse, or are the casks stored locally? The player must also create contracts with the customer to generate some extra, much needed, income. But this will off course add an obligation to the player in which he or she has to deliver.
The player can lose the game if all his or her funds are depleted. This can happen if the player fails to deliver in time or has too many cask of beer in stock. Not achieving the goals set in the contract will result in penalty's which, eventually will cost a lot of money and might force the player into bankruptcy.
