Just FYI that I know of at least two other "stock market games," both of which occupy my game shelves.The first is Knizia's "Palymra," which isn't stock-themed but does present a stock-market simulation (as Reiner would be the first to say). It's quite fun, and a fairly quick German-game experience for 2-4 people who have a free half hour.The second stock market game is "Spekulation," another German-based offering, but this one a more homegrown game from dbSpiele, a company that historically looks to keep components cheap! Here's a link to it on Boardgamegeek, including a few good pictures:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewitem.php3?gameid=1036Please note two things. First, its 7.30 rating is respectable and deserved, based on my limited (1 full play) experience of it. Has some luck, but quite fun for 2-6 spekulators. Second, it's by Dirk Henn, a lesser-known designer (i.e. not top tier a la Reiner, Kramer & Kiesling, etc.) who's nevertheless put out some very good games. Games like Showmanager and Metro, and his most recent -- a huge inviting box I have on the glass table in my den -- Wallenstein, which presently rates a 7.91 and gets generally great comments like these:http://www.boardgamegeek.com/viewcollections.php3?gameid=3307&comment=1&orderby=rating&dir=-1&totalnum=22So, the world of stock market games is definitely not at all limited to games that have "Stock Market" in the title.Me, I grew up on Stryker Drilling and other fictitious companies from that old Avalon Hill stock market game whose name escapes me at the moment....Foolishly,David
