Welcome to the Tycoon Online WIKI - here to help you.
USA Tycoon Game / Sweden Tycoon Game


Money bag
Tycoon Online is a free online business simulation game. Every player manages their own virtual company and strives to be the most successful among many competitors. Build factories and produce goods to sell on the market or in your own shops. Build offices to offer various services to the population of the city you are based in. Whatever you do, the world of Tycoon Online changes every day depending on your actions and those of other players. The game plays in real time and your company lives and breathes even when you are not logged on. Do you have what it takes to be successful at this business strategy game ?

Tycoon Online has very few system requirements. It is a browser based game, meaning it requires no program installation. Most browsers work with Tycoon Online, and there are no requirements as to the speed of your Internet connection.

There are currently 2 versions of the game running, and you are allowed to start 1 account at each server. The original game is played on a Sweden map in English or Swedish, while the latest version is played on a USA map in English. They are very similar and any differences are clearly shown in these help files.

Saw Mill
When registering you will receive a small amount of iKr or i$ (the Tycoon Online currencies). You will spend some of it establishing your company, but then the fate of your business rests in your own hands. Most find Tycoon Online an easy game to understand, but it is advised to read through these help files when starting a company for the first time. If you have questions and are unable to find their answers in the help files, more experienced players will be delighted to help you out - either in the game forums or through the chat function.

There are two ranking lists in Tycoon Online and your goal is to climb them both. The S-rank (stock ranking) is won by the player making the smartest share purchases and sales on the stock market. The C-rank (company rank) is won by the player who increases the value of his own company the most. To do well, you will need to build factories, produce and sell merchandise, trade with stocks, hire personnel, and much more to be successful.

Alcohol Shop
Tycoon Online is played in rounds. Each round lasts for 70 days (10 weeks). When the round is over, winners are decided and all players are awarded Tycoon Online Points (TOPs) depending on how well they have done both on the S-rank and the C-rank. These scores are added to a hall of fame which displays the greatest tycoons throughout the history of the game. At the end of the round the game resets and a week later a new round begins. Once again, everyone will start fresh and all players will have the same chance to reach for the top of Tycoon Online.

Tycoon Online is under continuous development, every now and then the game is upgraded and new features are introduced - usually at the beginning of a new round.
