"Dog Eat Dog" is a satire of 1980s corporate America. Players are presidents of a division of Rinky Dink, Inc., a large manufacturing corporation bent on plundering the environment for fun and profit. "Presidents" tear up the earth gathering raw materials, turn them into products, and sell them on the open market for millions. The division president with the most money in their Swiss Bank Account wins.
