Played a friend's copy and loved it. Ever since then I've been searching for something similar. I can't believe there's nothing like it.. can anyone recommend anything?? laugh

One of our favorites, too.

Look at Chinatown, Genoa, Pit, Bohnanza, Wheedle, Oltre Mare, Mundus Novus, Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean for games with trading mechanic.

And there's this obscure game about settlers on an island that has lots of trading also...although it isn't a "pure" trading game, which Res Publica is. I'd say that Bohnanza is closest I've seen to Res Publica, but the weird communication system for RP sets it apart.

Woo! Thanks a bunch I'll check all those out!

I can't really put my finger on what I like about the game but the weird communication is a big part of it. I suppose Hanabi is similar in an opposite kind of way. Any idea what the settler island game was?
