The best games with commodity speculation 2022

Looking for a really good commodity speculation game? Then we have just the thing for you: the list with the best commodity speculation games 2022.

What are commodity speculation games?

Commodity speculation is a subcategory of betting and bluffing, where money is bet on various commodities in the game. This, of course, with the hope that this particular commodity will become the most valuable in the course of the game. Often the values of commodities change constantly during the game, and players buy and sell the commodities to make money on their investment.

Further subdivision into investment & collusion

Commodity speculation includes both "investment games" or "investment games" where players have indirect control over the values of commodities, but have a hard time hurting others without hurting themselves. Furthermore, there are also so-called "collusion games" where players have a great deal of direct control over manipulating the values of commodities, forcing players to help others and use shifting alliances.

Examples of commodity speculation games

A good example of a commodity speculation game is Modern Art by Reiner Knizia.
