Wow,I have no idea what you call it. I have an idea for a board type game that will require very little as far as movement and effects, bear with me Im brand spankin new. It's in my head and has been for years. Turn based strategy sort of like monopoly with several players building business' in a city for conquest. The board page is a map of players walking through a city on spaces, land on space a screen pops up with options, challenges, bad news etc. During the turn the player can perform actions such as nite school, attacking another player in the form of a knowledge challenge etc. Several "life" levels effect each player, its more about the "mechanics" of player interaction I think. What do you call this type of game? More questions than you want comin up lol. Thanks peeps!

As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

It reminds me of a more in depth version of the game of Life. Go for it.

Hey your right, it is like Life. It started with playing Build-a-Lot and Railroad Tycoon but I've added dirt and scandal aspects to it. Character really counts and the variables are growing. I'm thinking this thing will need some serious math formulas behind it, any ideas or proven formulas out there? Thanks again.

It actually reminds me of the NES/Atari/etc strategy game: M.U.L.E.
