Imagic Beta tester Tip

Capitalism Game Series

Here are Capitalism Plus Hints and Strategies straight from the I-Magic playtesters:
1. Own the entire system. Be a Carnegie, don't buy imported rubber to make shoes if you can find a good farm location and grow rubber trees.
2. Plan your farms in conjunciton with your stores and factories. You can negate your profit greatly by paying the long range transportation costs.
3. I don't like heart of downtown malls. The edge of the city offers MUCH cheaper building costs and the profit you turn is almost identical.
4. Look for a diversified company with an aggressive CEO and buy stock in it..over time, it should pay nice dividends.
5. Keep an eye on the stock market, especially looking for a corp. buying a large stake in a rival...it's probably a prelude to a takeover. Buy some stock in the target corp yourself. You'll not only benefit from the rising stock price as the takeover move along, but when it's complete and the two merge, you'll now own stock in the parent.
6. Get away from using imported products and material as soon as possible. When the supplier moves, it creates havoc with your supply lines and costs $$ when you're just relabelling an import because that import ain't there no more.
7. Beds are a great and cheap first product line to start. They have a nice margin of profit and only require a timber camp for raw materials.
8. When you first move a new product into a city, it'll not do well (as a rule) against the local competition for quite some time. If you lower the price, often taking a small loss on the product, you'll snag market share in a hurry and can then raise the price. The customers normally keep buying your now-pricier product.
9. If you can get a gold mine running, it's a profit-making machine.
10. Oil is a great income-producer. The problem is that you only make the big $$ by selling it to your competitors, who use it to make other products that compete with yours.


I like the downtown areas or as close as I can get to the city centers. Generally the sales are just that much better. Have any of you noticed that when you group stores together, they generally do better than if your stores are not grouped near your own or even competitors' stores? It seems the game simulates this idea of shopping centers and how these groupings tend to draw people because generally many people will want some convenience, especially when it comes to buying life's necessities.

Following suggestions one and two are maxims for me. Number 4 applies to my own company, though initially I tend to focus on a few products using the same raw materials. number 6 is generally true, and unless their product(s) is/are a lot cheaper, I don't bother or stock up on inventory if I am able to until I can obtain my own supply line.

Beds are simple to make, they may or may not be a good starting product depending on where the timber is and if the city it's in will support a store for that product. This is often a key concept as some raw materials or semifinished goods are not too expensive to ship (of course depending on the final retail price you can afford to sell it at). I often start off shipping some things until I can gradually get all my supply-maufacturing-retail chains within their own cities, thus decreasing shipping costs and building profits margins which in turn over the long run will maximize my total profits.

Number 8 is difficult to do sometimes, as I might be near bankruptcy and need to start making a profit soon. Thus, I might not be able sustain carrying a product if it is losing money for too long in the beginning of the game. In the later stages of the game, this of course is a method to ruin things for an opponent, and possibly force the other company to take out other loans or sell more stock (which you can often pick up) especially if you are cutting profits on their main source of income.

Oil and gold can be useful, but as noted, you may be helping your competitors so it might be better to limit your sales to your competitors until you can start producing something yourself. Sometimes these resources are not wanted by anyone as the city may have its own cheaper products available through the seaports.

When we feel of two player strategy board games in the western world, we believe,
"Chess" and, "No Friends Nigel". This has produced it feasible
for everybody to try out games online. The player preplans his
next moves while the sport is on pause. Most people especially kids
and teens prefer to experience games online, be it strategy or puzzle
or from any other category. DUNGEN had players competing against one other to
perform a series of quests. Bluntly put, most lottery games
are won or lost based on pure guesswork along with the widely used the lottery game,
the smaller the probability to nail down the winning combination,
which can be why most experts advise emphasizing lottery
games with smaller prizes for better success rates. It is
easy to predict football odds in relation to some time to
goals. We are in a very time where freebies have become highly
sought after and where individuals will search much more totally free movies or free games.
Another means of procuring cards is to win in the overall game rounds.
Players receive bonuses when a new block is
laid. Difficult updation: If some of the components within the box become dated, the
complete console need to be replaced to keep playing newer games.

Players begin with a single, small planet and a few construction ships and it is from all
of these meagre resources that the player must build their galactic empire and disseminate into a universe including things like of as numerous planets as
you needs to put in the overall game using the customisable map generator.
* Act like organizational radars (or antennae) scanning the internal
and external environments. The trick is that you'll be
able to attack your opponent and your attacker can attack you whenever
so there exists no telling when you will require to become properly prepared for battle.
Checking out the tricks with the Napoleonic as well as 2 world
wars is often a wise course of action. You can be sure how the players you are
using are real. Naturally looking at the original
source of terms many of such games are war games which may have you
fighting in a few geographical zone such as a jungle or township.
The game provides a a lot more interactive opportunity,
allowing the gamer to really participate inside plot development in the story.
Search for the kids on the search engines and use any of these to calculate just how much a
membership could be within your own currency. Below, we could discuss a little of what these sub genres have in common but more importantly what
makes them differentiate themselves from each other.
Record high scores, play a large number of cool games all on Mind - Jolt.
This is really a unique game with combined popular features of strategy games,
war based games, role doing offers and trading cards.
