2  Gaming Stuff / Economic Games / Historic Economic Simulations on: July 26, 2014, 06:16:25 pm
Are there any games that simulate an economic conflict in the same way that a wargame will simulate a military conflict? Maybe a game about the dot-com stock market bubble or corporate takeovers to build monopolies or something similar. I'm looking for a game informed by actual events that strives for some level of historic accuracy.

I'm asking because as a gamer I'm interested in simulations, but military history is less engaging for me than something economic.

add me to the list of calandale fans who had to come over and see what's up here.

I'm generally a lurker wherever i go (online and off), so I haven't had direct experience with bgg moderation, though most of the time i hear about someone being banned I can't really see why from what they've posted.


I've been playing games for about 8 years (after playing some back in high school). I came to wargames because I was interested in games with more complexity and breadth, not through an interest in history. I had gotten into Phil Eklund's games and that piqued my interest in games that simulate things, and wargames seemed like the next choice. SPQR was my first wargame. Then some other GBoH and MPBS. Then I heard about Here I Stand and Virgin Queen and COIN and others that deal with the economics and politics of war along with the warfare.
