The Business Simulation Game

Tycoon games & company management simulations

"US pilots started to hone their skills using flight simulators as early as the 1970s. It proved to be cheaper, and in some cases more effective, than training sorties. Today, anyone can learn the basics of driving in auto simulators in the same way that one can learn the fundamentals for building a company with the Virtonomics business simulation game."

A year ago, I decided that I was going to open my own small retail business. However, it was very frightening; I didn’t have any entrepreneurial experience or company management skills. I took several business courses and training seminars, but my questions and concerns only grew. My friends then advised me to try my hand at the startup simulator ‘Entrepreneur”. At first, I was skeptical; what can a game teach me? However, now I know for sure that this is the most effective way of practical training for entrepreneurs, and is certainly a fantastic tool for novice businessmen! It’s honestly a very realistic business simulator, with a huge amount of detail when it comes to business processes. This allows entrepreneurs to develop their practical skills regarding the process of managing and growing a startup. Without risking my capital, I was able to experiment with running a virtual company, while testing and improving my business model. The business simulator saved me from many failures in the real world, and it stopped me worrying about losing my investment. Six months later, I opened my first store, my investment was returned and I made a profit. Thanks Virtonomics!

I’ve been playing the economics game ‘Mafia Manager’ for about a year now. This is truly one of the coolest and most unusual strategy multiplayer games about the economy and the unwritten rules of the corporate world. The game offers a combination of tough economic strategy, company management puzzles and a varied PvP arsenal. The game is in no way short of industrial espionage and political intrigues. I ended up creating my own mafia clan and engaged in market wars with my competitors! In just a few months, I built a powerful corporation from scratch, I captured markets and companies from a dozen different tycoons, and even became president of a virtual state. My emotions from playing in this world are difficult to describe; you’ll have to give it a go yourself and understand that sweet feeling of victory. :)
Max Economic game Business and Mafia: Max review
I’ve been playing the tycoon game Virtonomics on and off for about 5 years now. As a fan of complex games about the economy, I’m constantly searching and trying different business simulation games for my students; good ones are hard to come by, I must be honest. Having said that, no business game I found managed to get even close to Virtonomics in terms of realism, variety and interesting gameplay. This game is constantly being developed and improved. It is as diverse and interesting as our life itself. Here, you can develop your economics, entrepreneurship, company management skills, finances, marketing, decision making, politics, market research, R&D, creativity, all while engaging with a really friendly community. Virtonomics Tycoon is a slow turn-based browsing business simulator for calm, thoughtful and intelligent people. Although, we are a passionate bunch to be honest. Give it a try!

Supplies and suppliers

If your company has stores, warehouses, farms, health centers or factories, collaborating with suppliers and purchase planning will be an important part of managing your company. Things to consider: 

  • Selecting one or several suppliers. You can order from several suppliers, it will reduce the risk of delivery failure (suppliers can change the conditions of the contract, deliver less than ordered and even terminate the contract). However, in this case, the purchase price may be slightly higher. Instead you can focus on ordering supplies from the   supplier, who offers the best price. However, in case of delivery failure, you risk being left without the supply in the next game turn.
  • To ensure the supply for large enterprises, the purchasing of seasonal agricultural products can be integrated into the supply chain of warehouses. Storing these products will help you balance out the supply. However, in this case a certain amount of money is frozen.  
  • Such indicators as price, quality and brand tend to change. Check them regularly to make sure you are buying the best offer. Also, new suppliers with more attractive offers may appear on the market.
  • Every store and factory has its own warehouse. They can be used to store the goods. However, pay attention to the occupancy percentage.

A contract sample of Bread supply to the store:

Bear in mind the following factors:

  • The supply of potatoes at the same time from two suppliers. The conditions of the contract are set for an automatic termination in case of quality drops below the set minimum or the price increases more than 10%.
  • The second supplier received an order of 20,000 units (the maximum number of units the supplier can deliver is   no more than 30 000 per one game turn). Currently the supplier has 16 096 of available units. In other words, the conditions of this particular contract are not entirely met. 

Supply functionality in Virtonomics

In order to manage your supplies, go to one of your  subdivisions and click on the «Supply» tab.

Every warehouse has a certain specialization (it is selected when opening a warehouse). For factories, farms, health centers the type of required materials is known beforehand.

For stores, you can order any product of your choice (if it is available on the market). Select product category and specific product.  The simulation will give you the list of available suppliers. They can be sorted based on the price, quality and brand. Select the supplier, select the volume of the number of products you would like to purchase, select one of the following contract conditions: cancel the supply in case the price increases and quality drops, one-time purchase. Confirm the purchase by clicking on “Order”. You will receive your order after the nearest game turn.

If you order from two different suppliers and the product quality differs, you will receive products with average quality.
