I loved the Stock Market board game as a kid for the same reason that other people may not like it. It can last a very long time. It does not have to end after one or two hours. You can play this game all night or for several days if you wanted to.
The game and gameplay
Stock Market is the most fun when the maximum number of people are playing it, because things often go back and forth and you can never really tell who's going to be ahead after another hour goes by.
Everything is in a sheer state of flux all the time, and there is about as much luck as there is skill in this game, and that's about the same in the real stock market - though the game is nothing like playing the real market because of its limitations and its simplicity.
The only problem with this game was, few people had the patience to calculate the massive amounts of stocks and funds that you would acquire after playing the game for a while.
But now that we have computers, that isn't a problem anymore. PCs can calculate numbers up to 36 digits, which no calculator on the market can come close to doing (I think 16 digits is the most I've ever seen).

Plus, they can do all the dirty work of tracking shares and money without you having to count it out and use scratch paper to write out shares and money when you start running out of that supplied with the game.
Someone needs to turn Stock Market board game into a PC game.
I would love to see it happen and would program it myself if I knew how.
Would be a great game to play on the Internet.
A truly endlessly entertaining game that, if you're the right way inclined, will be heaven for you.
