So what should I purchase (or trade for) next? While I have a list of games I am actively pursuing, I would like to know if there is anything out there I am missing.

A bit about my tastes: I prefer non-zero sum, positive interaction (think building an economy in Container), and spatially dynamic games. I find myself leaning toward economic themes where commodity speculation is a key mechanic. Some of my favorite games that reflect this are Container, Indonesia, Chicago Express, and Namibia.

The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can, Pursuing it with eager feet, Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet.

Merchants & Marauders definitely has something similar to that.

You need a Wallace in your collection. I recommend Brass: Lancashire.

Baltimore & Ohio is sometimes called "Chicago Express on steroids". May be too long for your group.

Wallace is a good suggestion, but I think you'd be more partial to Automobile. From the BGG page:
Quote:
Each player knows a portion of the market demand each round and must make his purchasing and manufacturing decisions based on the information.


Wealth of Nations is a great suggestion.

Also, check out Bullfrog Goldfield. Stupid name, but really cool investing game!
