Hey guys


I was looking at this game on Kickstarter called Raccoon Tycoon. It features a market with fluctuating commodity prices and produce goods, sell them at an opportune time and use that cash to start auctions for set collection. It has some buildings you can buy to improve production etc...

Nothing mind blowing and a bit to light and random for my liking but the concept appeals to me. The closest thing in my collection is Tulip Bubble and I love that game.

Are there other economic style games featuring a market, high player interaction and preferably deep gameplay that I can take a look at? I'm very much into games like 18xx, Indonesia, everything featuring an auction (Cyclades, Tramways, Age of Steam)...

cheers
David

Clans of Caledonia is like a combination of Terra Mystica and an economic game, with a market similar to Raccoon Tycoon. No auctions though as I recall.

Stockpile may be too light for you but is a really fun auction game with high interaction and the ability to increase or decrease values of commodities (here, stocks).

I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

Container features bidding and price-setting. What's in the market depends on what players choose to produce (different colors of containers, rather than different goods).

There's no production of goods, but perhaps take a look at Modern Art. The value of paintings depends on which artist's paintings are sold (there's a central market board), and each player takes turns setting the auction. It's all auctions, so there's plenty of interaction, and I find it a fantastic and fun game.

(FYI, if you had some interest in Racoon Tycoon, there's going to be a live playthrough of Raccoon Tycoon tonight by Heavy Cardboard. I don't follow HC so don't know a ton about them, but from their name/reputation they like heavy stuff so maybe it's more strategic than you think? For full disclosure, I'm a RT backer )

I think Planet Steam might be close to what you are looking for? I thought that game was cool.

Try these ones:

Container (or Container: 10th Anniversary Jumbo Edition!)
King Chocolate
Ponzi Scheme
Modern Art
Imperial 2030
Chicago Express
Food Chain Magnate
Indonesia

You'll not regret.

Thx, I own Clans of Caledonia, I like it but it doesn't feel like an economic game, it's a way to get the rescourses you need for your puzzle.

Haven't tried stockpile yet, I hope to play it one day. It's one of those games that I might like but am not sure about so I want to play it before buying it.

I love Heavy Cardboard, they bring really great content and bring an honest no bullshit review of the games they play. So I watched the playthrough but I'm still not convinced. There's a lot to like but it's not enough for me, it seems a bit to chaotic. But I think it will be a pretty good game.

cheers

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, I'll look into the suggested games. I love games like Food Chain Magnate and Indonesia and it's hard to live up to those as an economic game. I'm always on the look out for other titles to add to the collection.

For economic games, Brass: Lancashire is a great one as well.
