Hello,
I was wondering how many boardgames out there involves unit building with some type of production cost vs your production ability.

IE:
What i am after, is what boardgames require you to add up unit costs while deciding what to purchase with your limited money.

Examples.
1. Axis and Allies
2. TE3
3?
???
Does anyone else have something they can add to this list.
Thanks,

If I understand your question correctly, Nexus Ops fits those criteria. Units cost 2 to 12 rubium, depending on their quality, and you only produce so much a turn from your mines. No limit except for rubium on how many units you can hire on your turn.

This is pretty common in strategic level wargames (like those you listed) where the action takes place over months and years.

Are there any other criteria you would like to include (# of players, time to play, subject matter) to narrow it down some?

Hitler's War would be a strategic level wargame that does something like this.

Twilight Imperium (Third Edition)
Each unit costs X amount of resources to produce at your spacedock, but the most number of units you can build is based on the planet where the spaceodock is located.
