Because constantly races of animals are held and you can go to the screen and bet on some races and then leave again. So this thing can run perfectly in the background of parties.

World Simulater lets you have your own genesis tub like in that Simpsons episode. Remember that Simpsons episode where Lisa had this culture in the jar. the Simpsons episode was called the genesis tub. So this is a genesis tub game. Different to the simpsons culture in the jar this is a continent, so you do not see a city but you see cities appear and disappear as dots on the map. And then you wach the cultures through the ages. This is what the world simulator does. I actually programmed this for myself and never had the intension to publish it somewhere but some of my friends said that they like it so I thought maybe some people would like to have it maybe and think that this is fun. It is a really simplistic world with drifting continents and you see two tribes put up points on the map that are cities. And then you see little events at the cities that show what the people are doing and what cultural level they have reached. It is something to sit in front of and just watch. As I said, this is really not a big thing, but I somehow wanted to have this for myself and if you think you could like it then feel free to download it. It is absolutely free because I programmed it myself. And so just for the fun of it you can quickly download it for free. Have your own Genesis Tub continent like in this simpsons episode. For me this is fun, I like to sit in front of it. It is somehow relaxing. Could be better but I just programmed this shortly for me without putting to much efford into it.

Greek Trader. 5 five players multiplayer mini game
The game may take some time to load and sometimes nothing happens on the screen for 3 minutes that is normal.
Remember at the end of this page is a mini game you can also download.
Greek trader is a new trade game (Wirtschaftsspiel) I made. The game is made with regard to the tradition of games like Hanse, Yuppies Revenge, Vermeer, Ports of Call, Oil imperium or Klo manager. No, it is actually quite different, but it could be fun for everybody whole likes these Trade games. It is a new game from 2014.
It is free to download. I programmed it for fun. I played all these old trade games (Wirtschaftsspiele) and thought I make a new game in a similar style.
It is for all of you that are like me and played Yuppies Revenge and Hanse and Vermeer and then later the Klo Manager (toilet manager) and now wait for something like this to come out again.
But I am such a great fan of especially Vermeer and Yuppies that I think my game might not hold up to that competition. But you can sit together with your fiends ship some wares and see who makes the most money and becomes promoted first. Remember in Hanse when everybody tried to become mayor. Or even later Hanse the expedition where there really was a cathedral to be build before you could get mayor. So cool.
It looks very simple and, hey thats what it is. It is a new game like a serial of old very classic games from the eighties where. It is not absolutely the same, as I said I wanted to experiment a little with this. But it is basicly meant to be a new Wirtschaftsspiel (trade game). And it is fun.
While nothing happens on the screen and you wait for your ships you are supposed to talk to your friends.
If you should somehow have a working version of the classic title Vermeer 2 – Die Kunst zu erben(The art of inheriting) that really works on a Pc, I would really like to have this just for personal playing. We are not able to find a working version.
All these Wirtschaftspiele like Hanse and Vermeer where all playable on the old Amiga. So you can still play theese games for free on your Pc. Old amiga games can be played using a program called WinUAE. You have to learn how the program is operated but it is well worth it and it is also well explained in the net. You can play nearly all old amiga games on the Pc with this. You always only need the disc file, which are everywhere on the net (*.adf amiga disc files) and you have to adjust the program sometimes for every game. If a game should not load. But really, I believe that really nearly all Amiga games can be made to run with the right adjustments. So if you are looking for how to play these old trade games again WinUAE is the thing you should look for.
Greek Trader trade game
In Greek Trader you send ships from Athens to different cities of ancient greece and look how expensive the wares are that they return to you. And then you try to make money and hopefully get promoted because you make much money.
The exact rules
Sending your ships
You start in Athens. You basicly have only one key on the keyboard for each player. Starting with Q it goes to the right E T U O. So every player has his own key on the keyboard. Also every player has a little display to show his money account.
Your ships take a long time to return, that is the game, if nothing happens the game is still on.
You only use your own key on the keyboard to scroll through the list of cities. When your ships return they will wait a few seconds and then start off again to the location that is on your display at the moment. So your only decision is actually what city you name in your display, because in the next run your ships will go there.
Each sending out of your ships will cost you 400. When the ships return they show you what they brought back and how much money you made with this. Then your ships automatically start again to the location that is on your display at this time.
The locations change to more expensive wares or less expensive wares they offer, but they change always only one position up or down. So a location with expensive wares will always give you expensive wares for some time. And also locations with cheap goods will for a longer time return cheap goods.
Sometimes Scylla, a female sea monster appears at the haven of the city where your ships are. This will cost you money. Buy a letter de marque for the city on your display with the key under your key, this will enable you to attack Scylla at this city instead of being attacked and gives you money. Those keys are, one for each player: A D G J L. Remember Scylla is likely to appear more often in the waters she was last seen because she stays around for a while at some locations at once.
If you scroll to Dock in your city list and then leave it like this, the next time your ships come back they will then go to the dock and their carrying capacity will be enhanced. This costs 4000 but is well worth it.
If you scroll to Sail in your city list and then keep this, the next time your ships come back they will then have they sails enhanced to be faster. This costs 2000 and is also well worth it.
Never keep to much money, always invest in carrying capacity and better sails.
Calculate your income
The cities are at different distances. Delos, Chios and Cythera are quite close. The far cities Tenedos, Rhodes and Olympia are twice as far. And the middle cities Lesbos, Miletus and Ephesus are right between the other two with their distance.
In the farer cities can be better wares.
How to calculate: since you pay 400 for each time your ships start from Athens you have to calculate 2 times 400 if you go on a short route in difference to going on a long one. That brings us to the formula: Prize of ware in the short route city times 2 minus 400. Is measured against: Prize of ware in long route city. Or Prize of ware in the short route city times 3 minus 400. Is measured against: Prize of ware in middle route city times 2. Or Prize of ware in the middle route city times 4 minus 400. Is measured against: Prize of ware in long route city times 3.
Well I think at least that this is correct, but math is not necessarily one of my strengths. So just consider that you pay 400 for each run of your ships and that the longest routes take the double time of the shortest routes and then calculate for yourselves.
Trade Games , economy games , german Wirtschaftsspiel
The idea to this new trading game like Vermeer or Hanse.
Back in the eighties and nineties there were nice little computergames from germany called Wirtschaftspiele (economy games). Among these economy or trade games there where legendary titles like Hanse , Vermeer , Oil Imperium , Yuppies Revenge , Ports of Call. In all these Wirtschaftspiele that means trade games you always do the same thing: with easy mathematics you calculate the money that you make with oil or colonial wares or sending ships to certain cities So the goal of these old economy games like Yuppies Revenge or Hanse is to make money on the market and then get promoted. In Hanse you where a shipowner in the times of the german traders guild Hanse about 16 hundred. In Yuppies Revenge and Oil Imperium you had to dig for oil and then sell it. In Ports of call you had to transport goods around the globe and make money from the trade to buy bigger ships.
In more recent days a game came out in the style of these old Wirtschaftsspiele. It was called Klo manager (Toilet manager) in which you had to buy public toilets and make money from this. I always liked these trading games and we played long hours making money. In Vermeer you where a trader of colonial wares and tried to make money to lateron buy artworks for your collection. those wirtschaftsspiele (economy games) where full of flair even though these trade games where all very simple.
Greek trader is a game I recently made that is meant to be in the styles of these old trade games like Vermeer , Yuppies Revenge or Hanse. It is a bit different in style and does not use the old system of options like: Travel, Bank, Dig for oil. But still Greek Trader was made to be a new game in the style of these old trading games (Wirtschaftsspiel). So Greek Trader is very much a try to make a new trade game like Hanse, Yuppies Revenge or Vermeer. Greek trader is from about 2010 – 2014 but it is very simplistic like the old trade games. You can play Greek Trader with up to five people. You are a greek trader in Athens and send ships to other harbors to transport goods. And then if you make enough money you get promoted.
