The main Kapitalist window

The Game Menu

Game->New Window

Creates a new application window, where you can connect to another game (or to the same game as a different player). This way you can e.g. easily control two players in one game.


Opens a Connection to a server running capitalist


Closes the actual server connection


Starts the Game, if you are allowed to do so, i.e., if you have started the server from within your client. You can get the same effect by issueing the server command '/start' in the chatline.

Game->Close (Ctrl-w)

Closes the actual window. Other application windows stay still open.

Game->Quit (Ctrl-q)

Quits Kapitalist. All windows are closed

The Action Menu

Action->Roll Dice

Rolls the Dice

Action->End Turn

Ends your Turn. You can only end your turn if you don't have debts. This action implies that you want to settle your debts in case you have some and fails if you can't do that because you haven't got enough money.

Action->Buy Property

Buys the Property you have landed on.

Action->Pay Debts

Pays your Debts in case you have some. If you can't settle your debts, even after selling all your houses and mortgaging all your properties, you must declare yourself bankrupt.

Action->Declare Bankruptcy

Declares yourself Bankrupt. This is only possible if you are really bankrupt, i.e. if you can't pay your debts by selling all your houses and mortgaging all your properties.


Opens the Jail Dialog, where you have the choice how to leave jail. This is of course only important if you are actually in jail.


Opens the Trade Dialog, where you can compose and edit trade offers and reply to trade offers from other players. You can safely close the trade dialog even if you haven't finished your trade activities yet without loosing the current state.
