Before legendary investor Warren Buffett was an iconic billionaire, he was a 13-year-old boy slinging newspapers. 

Nowadays, of course, he’s the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway — one of the world’s most powerful conglomerates, and a 5% stakeholder in Apple.

As an homage to those humble beginnings and Buffett’s tight connection with Apple, the iPhone maker created a new game wherein you deliver newspapers in both Omaha, Nebraska and Cupertino, California.
