I found a copy of Tycoon new in shrink. It's the Jumbo version. Anybody know what this game in this condition goes for these days?

I'm not sure of it's $$$value but I do know it's one of the best quick playing, medium weight economic games ever made. In the same league with a classic like Acquire. Too bad it's fairly hard to find and relatively unknown.

This was the first euro I ever played. I picked it up in a pound store while I was living in England for 5pounds. (sorry no pound symbol on this keyboard)

Wish I could have it again.

I remember seeing some copies at www.magnus-spiele.de in Viernheim (Germany) a couple of weeks ago for only EUR 12,-
Maybe this is a good chance for anybody interested in this game...?

Regards,
Flix

P.S. I saw them in the local store on a shelf - they are not listed in the online shop, maybe because there were only a couple of copies left?)

Funny you should say... QWG just announced a remake of this as El Capitan (#3 in their masterprint line).

Just picked up a copy in a charity shop (thrift store) for GBP 2.00 today. It's in shrink, and seems to be a dual-language Japanese and English version. Published by Jumbo. No obvious designer credits on the box - is that the same as with the standard version?
