Game Review (written by Bradders_1) Added on: 10/12/2009
Anyone who ever played Capitalism or Capitalism pro will love this game. Trading stocks on the stock market can be a very risky business and indeed only the wealthy need apply when you’re talking about the golden rule that it takes money to make money. However if you don't have that kind of capital to play in the real world there is always Tycoon: The Commodity Market Simulation. It’s a turn based game (similar to Civ). Each turn is a week in the game world Buy or sells, make a profit.
Bull vs. Bear its all here. There are a lot of tools available to help you. You can read news on each of the share options available to you. There are market history reports.
In the right hands this game will be a godsend. A game where you practice getting rich. It has all the downsides to investment like the bear market and even the market crash. Its fun though, text based but still interesting. Game play is mainly leaning toward those of us who like to read streams of data and make moves based on what we think rather than feel. Unfortunately I fall in the category of the latter and it didn't take many turns until

I was flat on my face broke. But I have returned and done a little better and I'd be lying if I now wasn't saving a little each month to have a play for real! Love it that its ran on the MS-DOS engine, makes me feel like Gordon Gecko from Wall Street, mid 80's power brokering. cool. All I need now is a big leather chair, a stripy shirt and red braces. I give this game a good score because it is what I'm after and I know for a fact that it what others want too. In terms of scope and comprehensiveness, it has no equal in the world of stock market simulations, and in fact the only things it really fails to address in an investment sense are non-market factors, like lawsuits, building permits, bribing politicians, unions, and all that good stuff.
This game is really great, and reflects some aspects of real business. You can make money choosing your own way. The only problem, in fact, is that investment options are far from real life.
A great game and one I will play again and again.

Nice game. A good start to the real economic world. Worth checking out. It takes a bit to get your head around the concepts but once you catch on, you start to get pretty addicted. Be sure to check your rates and learn as much as you can about each commodity. A short study in Gann theory can give you a giant head start. Also check out the effect of each of the moving averages against the MACD and see what happens when they cross over.
