Game Schooler Recommendation

Raccoon Tycoon is one of our favorite economic games primarily because it does such a great job of making complex topics such as supply & demand and market manipulation so approachable. Quick turns and simple actions keep Raccoon Tycoon moving along, even if the play length is longer than we usually recommend. The skill and subject development in this game more than makeup for the increased game length. Plus, it has animals dressed in fancy Victorian clothing!

Game Overview

In Raccoon Tycoon, players try to produce the most valuable commodities in an ever-changing marketplace. They then use those commodities to build towns, or sell them at the best price to secure great profits that can be used to win auctions for the all-important railroads. The profits may also be used to buy powerful buildings that give the players power-ups or bonuses in production. Owning the best towns and railroads determines victory. There can be only one "top dog" in Astoria. Is it you?
