What are some board games that are like a modernized version of Monopoly? Specifically: games that simulate the existing U.S. or global economy, with all the dynamics of lending rates, inflation-deflation, economic cycles, and so forth, and which help give some food on real-world issues for thought during play. The less "dry" and fun, the better, though I know that's a tall order. We have games like Agricola and Settlers of Catan, which are great but those are more in the realm of resource management. Also if there are any computer or console videogames worth considering, that's fine too, but board games would be better.

In the back of a booklet of Cheapass Games, they talk about how Monopoly can be envisioned as a game with land mines. Every time you damage someone, the life points they lose are added to yours. Building a minefield hurts you, but once you've built it, it will damage other players whenever they land on the space, etc, etc. Then they proceed to describe a pirate game, which is actually another game that they do not name. I'm going crazy trying to identify this mystery game. [come inside, won't you?] [more inside]
