Game theory addiction?

Yes, I am sometimes slow at finding these things, but here’s a sequel that I just have to promote. (I was seriously addicted to the former version.) Railroad Tycoon III will bring out the Dagny Taggart or John Galt in you, plus stimulate any kind of strategic thinking within economics… The entire game, the constructing mode (and the payoffs for shipments) between the cities are based on several formulas for supply and demand! In other words - Economics rule! This is more than a railroad game. This is a lesson in business management as well as a serious simulation of economic motives and cost-benefit analysis.
Plus… it will speak to the little, little boy in us all…

Bonus game - Economics for the kids - Tragedy of the Commons. This time in a bunny version.
