ARMCHAIR TAKEOVER PLAYS

Dubbed SimBillGates by the beta testers, Entrepreneur, a new Win95 game from Stardock Systems, is the business equivalent of Risk, the board game of war strategy. Build a global computer monopoly by crushing all but a few rivals (for antitrust purposes). Lessons aplenty: Heavy marketing can trump a superior product. Prettier and less number-heavy than competitor game, Capitalism. Play solo or against others in real time on the Net. $49.95; 888 STARDOC, or www.stardock.com.EDITED BY EDITH HILL UPDIKE
