The May 15 2006 issue of Newsweek has an article called 'Let's Not Play The Oil Game. It mentioned that today's war games are not about moving military hardware about the globe, but about manipulating oil prices.

But, I say, to heck with oil prices! Let's stay indoors, play oil games and save on fuel.

This is a list of oil-related games. Do add in as many oil games as you know...and play them!

An OOP oil game with high demand - just like the black stuff. A mint copy of this is listed at $850 - the same price as 12 barrels of crude oil.

From GMT's website:

"Supply and Oil:
Asia Engulfed incorporates a unique and simple system to realistically portray the Japanese resource limitations. The further your empire expands from Japan the harder it is to supply and operate your far-flung forces, not to mention defend your perimeter with a navy limited by its oil reserves".

Furthermore, the map shows "Oil Areas" e.g. in Dutch Borneo, British Borneo, Papua, East Sumatra, Vladivostok, Honshu.

If a recall rightly - one of the places you can have a worker in is an oil field and then you can sell the oil you collected.

Trade in 5 different stocks: Corn, Gems, Oil, Tech, and Movies.

(I wasn't going to add this, because I thought it was only tangential to the theme of this list, but then I saw "Buy Low, Sell High" had been added)
