A Trading Simulation that Spans 2 Millennia!

From humble beginnings, you will build a dynasty whose power extends across a vast trade and transport network. Buy low, sell high. Develop expensive luxury goods from cheap resources , and rake in the profits every step of the way.

Beginning at the dawn of human civilization and progressing through the 19th century, Trade Empires is a scenario- based, economic simulation game about creating a merchant empire through trade.

Controlling your family dynasty of merchants, your mission is to build vast transport and trade networks that change over thousands of years as new technologies are developed and more modern products are discovered.

Features and Activities:

Start out simple with one merchant and his donkeys. Gradually build your merchant empire until you control an expansive trading web

Manipulate the supply and demand economy to dominate the other merchant families. Corner the market. Undercut their prices.

Explore and Exploit: Continually discover new markets and products from silk in the Far East to iron cannons in industrial Europe.

Adapt your family's trading network to an ever-changing economy or instead face defeat when your competitors purchase advanced technology and deliver superior products.
