The evolution of resource conversion euros
According to BGG user Ben "chally", Ora et Labora gives players the joyous opportunity to choose from roughly 18,000,000,000 options for converting 20 or so different resources into even more of those 20 or so resources. My, we've come a long way. How did boardgames get into this mess? Let's try to find out with this geeklist.
One very early game that focuses on resource conversion is the venerable Sid Sackson creation from 1967, Bazaar. Is there an earlier exemplar?
As far as games in between Bazaar and Ora et Labora, that's for you, the reader, to supply. This is resource conversion in action: My puny geeklist seed + your diligent work -> actual content.
I'll be sorting this list by publication date, so please include when adding an item. Pity such sorting can't be done automatically.
