Bring It On
At first I was not sure if I would like a Monopoly type game but it became addictive. Now I play it almost every day and love it. Anything coming after it? Please?!

Trade Mania - Hours of fun!
Sometimes I have ADD when it comes to my games. I have a ton right now that are new, not played such as The Keepers - Lost Progeny, Weird Park - Broken Tune and countless others. I have many to replay such as 13th Skull and Dire Grove to just name a few, but sometimes, I really like games like Catwalk Countdown, Life Quest and My Life Story Adventures. I'm not crazy about the standard TM games such as Diner Dash, Roads of Rome, etc... I almost didn't even try this one and I am so glad I did. I literally could not stop playing over the course of 2-3 days. It was so different and so much fun! I hope there are more like this one coming in the future (or at least some more like Life Quest and Catwalk Countdown).

I was skeptical but.....
I am addicted!
To be totally honest, it's a no brainer but it really does hook you in.
If you've had a hard day and you just want to play something that is engaging but won't over work your brain cells, this just may be the game for you.
Give the demo a go and see if it suits. I'm glad I did.

Love love LOVE this game!!!
I don't think you have to be a Board Game lover either to enjoy Trade Mania....
It took me a mere ten minutes into the free trial to know that I was going to buy this one... I chose to play the computer characters and am having so much fun!
I HATE Monopoly by the way -- boring to the core because you're either the clear winner or the clear loser and it takes you hours to finally do so. This game takes hours as well, BUT~ it's hours of enjoyment!
It is obviously a game you can play over and over and over again.... which is a huge plus in my book! I do love the adventure games but have to wait months after playing one to do so again because my memory kicks in... Trade Mania is different every time you play....
I HIGHLY recommend this game! Enjoy!

There is more than just aquiring a real estate empire going on in this game. In addition, you're trading products and gambling on their futures which can inject some serious buying power into your bank account. Like Monopoly, it can be kid-friendly fun or ruthless empire building. Love it!

If Only Real Life Worked Like This! LOL
Absolutely love this game and play it daily at times! In my opinion, Trade Mania is a perfect mix of Monopoly and the Tradewinds series. I only wish I could make money in real life the way I can in this game! I'd be a massively wealthy woman! (not sure whether to lol or cry...rofl)
The graphics aren't exactly earth shaking, but they aren't bad either. The music is enjoyable without being obtrusive. There are various cards, similar to Monopoly, that do anything from discounting merchandise to letting the player change the "square" on which they will land to avoid paying rent or other penalties. There are two game options: the main game and a customizable game where the player can choose how many opponents she/he will be up against and whether they are human or computer opponents and the skill level of computer players.
In the main game, computer players' skill levels begin fairly low and increase as the game progresses but never become unbearably tough. Each city has its own merchandise that you buy, transport and sell for a profit. Each city has its own sets of goals that earn the player various rewards - from cash to bonus cards.
This is one of those games that any age and skill level can play and enjoy. My only real complaints would be the lack of a story line and the fact that there aren't more locations. The three cities, in order of play, are Seattle, Washington, Paris, France and New York, New York. I'd sure like to see a sequel....a longer game next time! ;-)
