Hi,
I am looking for games with production chains. I like Video games like settlers, Anno, Factorio and Caesar.
Wheat to Flour to bread, clay to brick ect.

I know
Oh My Goods!
Keyflower
Helvetia

Is there something else i should know?
If possible not so dependent on luck like Oh my goods.

Thank you!

Container also has what you are describing but it's more supply chain.

Produce->buy and store in warehouse ->buy and store on container ships->sell goods to the island.

Puerto Rico

The classic.


San Juan (second edition)

The little brother to the classic. Probably even closer to what you are looking for, as it is very focused on engine-building.

I own Puerto Rico, No productionchains. What i mean is more or less complex chains.
Examble: i need Iron and Wood to produce a barrel, then i need a vineyard to combinate the barrel an the Juice to vinebarrels.

Or One Road chains like wheat to Flour to bread.

Edit: i also own San Juan, there you produce sugar and sell it. That is Not a productionchain. Use that sugar to make Rum, thats a Small Chain

Ok, one game jumps out at me (even though I know there are many more):

Viticulture Essential Edition

Get vine cards, plant vine cards, harvest grapes of both red and white, make wine with the grape either directly (red and white) or in combination (one white, one red for a blush; two red and one white for a sparkling), get order cards, fill orders for various types of wine in your cellar.

That's a big chain, and it's very satisfying to complete.

Factory Fun or Factory Funner don't quite match what you have asked, but they might still be interesting to you. They involve taking one chemical, converting it into another, then another and so on, perpetuating the chain as much as you can.

Thanks for the clarification. thumbsup

Well, in that case I have no other recommendations, but I'm interested what others will recommend.

As said above, Uwe Rosenberg games has this space covered. Fields of Arle is a particularly good example with distinct chains for making three types of clothing, and more generally the game rewards clever conversions of resources. E.g. Breed animals to slaughter for skins, turn the skins to leather, convert the leather to clothing, trade the clothing for food, use the food to hire the help to build a castle on your farm.

It's out of print, but it sounds like Roads & Boatsis what you're looking for. You've not only got a complex production chain, but the added logistical problem of transporting the goods where they're needed for production. You can regularly find copies for <$100 in the market.

Craftsmen

I havent played it, but watched Rahdo runthrough, and it looks like it fits. I like these kinds of games too. Roads and Boats is jumping in the deep end, but looks great. Craftsmen or le Havre might be a better middle-weight entry point.

Ora et Labora for sure. It's my favorite example of escalating opportunities in production and refinement. The possibility tree for conversion is HUGE.

Check 51st State: Master Set, playing with Winter expansion (included in the set) focuses on developing the best point production engine.

Main mechanic is:
basic resources -> secondary resources -> getting more cards in front of you
resources -> victory points

While it's not very heavy it provides quick gameplay and nice combos, with balanced player interaction. Reaching victory condition takes about 5-6 turns, so you have to be efficient.
