The Midas Bank balance sheet which appears during Deals.

Making Deals is the primary way of gaining money in the Financial District. A Deal is a duel between two Entrepreneurs, in which the goal is to make the most profit possible from your opponent. This can happen in two ways:

  • Direct investment: The Entrepreneur attacks his opponent directly by transforming his money into a sword-like weapon. While this can give great profits, it also leaves the user vulnerable for attacks.
  • Asset investment: The Entrepreneur uses his Asset to attack his opponent. Assets can attack using special powers, Flations, which come in three levels of power: micro, mezzo and macro, depending on how much money is invested in the attack. Each Asset has unique Flations. Without Asset investment, an Asset can only protect the Entrepreneur from incoming attacks.

General RulesEdit

  • Every Entrepreneur must participate in at least one Deal per week. Those that fail to fulfill this condition will have their Assets and Midas Money withdrawn. There is no upper limit to the number of Deals one can take part in.
  • Each Entrepreneur may make a bid on an opponent. Every day at midnight, the person that made the highest bid for a given opponent wins the right to Deal with that person. Those that have been bid on by others may receive the value in money of the highest bid from that given bidder. If he has not himself made the highest bid on another Entrepreneur, he must accept to Deal with that opponent. If he has made the highest bid on another Entrepreneur, he may prioritize the challenge he himself issued and refuse to Deal with his own highest bidder.
  • Those that have not participated in any Deal in 6 days will have a Deal set for them by the Midas Bank under special conditions.
  • It is possible to refuse to take part in a Deal by paying half of one's funds to Midas Bank.
  • The time limit of a Deal is of 11 minutes and 6 seconds.  The countdown is represented by a three-digit display of 666 seconds under the Midas Bank balance sheet pictured above.
  • The winner of the Deal is decided by the increase of total funds, determined by taking his funds after the Deal, subtracting his funds before the Deal, dividing the result by his funds before the Deal and then multiplying by 100. The Entrepreneur with the highest increase in total funds wins the Deal.
  • During a Deal, if Entrepreneur's total funds reach zero and he takes further damage, he falls into insolvency, and if a determined amount of time passes or if the timer for the Deal reaches zero, the Entrepreneur goes bankrupt. If an Entrepreneur goes bankrupt, he loses the Deal automatically.
  • The winner of the Deal receives a value of Midas Money equal to that spent by the loser during the Deal. If the opponent lost by going bankrupt, the winner receives all of his Midas Money and Stocks.


  • A game that imitates the process of Deals has been developed for the mobile phones. Every player becomes an Entrepreneur, gets an Asset and gains the right to fight other players in Deals. Every week, the most successful players are mentioned in the ending credits of the series.
  • Six hundred and sixty-six, the number of seconds in a Deal's time limit, is the numerilogical identifier ascribed to the beast of the sea in the Book of Revelation of the New Testament.  The [C] event is depicted as a gigantic, but mostly unseen, tentacled creature descending upon a district.
