I'm wondering if there's any good economic strategy games for iOS that could be similar in feel to maybe a good Martin Wallace title, like Brass or Age of industry (I realize AoI is being developed right now but I want to know if there's anything now), Steam, etc? and not LeHavre (not as much eco either - just not interested in that one)

That is all. Thanks.

Only one I can think of is Chicago Express - Can't remember what it is called on IOS though - it is its original name.

Wabash Cannonball (Chicago Express) is sadly the only train/stock game I ever owned and ended up trading it. I just wasn't a fan. And I love train games. I'm really hoping Age of Industry will still be released and will be a good implementation but in the mean time, I'm finding there's a real lack of these titles.

Give Le Havre a chance. It was a bit much for me to begin with but about four games in, the title stuck and has its hook in me now.

Yes, definitely Le Havre should scratch that itch.

Imperial is mainly an investing/economics game, that includes war elements to take over and control opponent's territories. I've only played the iOS version of this boardgame, and have definitely enjoyed it!

I am also very hopeful for Age of Industry as it is one of my favorite games of all time. I would be interested in any recommendations that may not be originally boardgames, but are on iOS as well.
