Mercantile focused turn based strat game?

In the mood to play a turn based strategy game but am looking for one that focuses more on trading and diplomacy rather than combat.

In my years of gaming going back to the mid 90s I have never really tried the Sim City type games either.

Just looking for something different from rpgs, mmos, fps etc.

I have played games like Civilization, Alpha Centauri, Total War etc.

In poking around a little on the net I saw Settlers 7, Dawn of Discovery and a game called East India Company.  I just started looking though.

Like I say, I have neglected this genre and am looking for some expert opinions.


A game I really enjoyed was way back on the NES, Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

    Patrician 3. It's not turn based game but by adjusting the time settings you can slow it down, fast forward etc. I really recommend this old gem if you like trading/tycoon games.

    Not a MMO or even modern really, But you should look into the game "romance of the Three kingdoms" great

    turn based politics etc.




    Destiny has cheated me
    By forcing me to decide upon
    The woman that I idolise
    Or the hands of an automaton

    Without these hands I can't complete
    The opera that was captivating her
    But if I keep them, and she marries him
    Then he probably won't want me dating her
