Hey!
I'm working on a new boardgame which should have three resources: Minerals, Oil and ?

The third one should be something like "Industrial Products", but that name is a little bit long. Any good suggestions? I was thinking of "Technology", but it is not actually. Rather it is a mix of low-tech industrial products...
Thanks!

A few thoughts

Gizmos? Bits? Products? Goods? Commodities? Widgets?

Perhaps it would help if you mentioned a little more about your game.

Thanks for the input! Well,

Thanks for the input!
Well, the game is taking place in the modern world and the "Industrial Products" that I want to rename include things like engines, electronics, vehicles etc.
Thanks!

Term

The actual term for those items in the financial sector is durable goods.

Just an observation, but aren't those two different things? If you say "minerals and oil" and call them resources, I think most people (okay, maybe just me) would think the third is also a raw good, like lumber, stone, grain, oxygen, water, etc. Industrial products / durable goods are manufactured resources, and are at least partially made up of your other two goods (minerals + oil > processing > durable goods).

Can you not just simply call

Can you not just simply call it "Produce". A sort of play on youre orter name: industrial products. It is short and simple and still tells you what it is. Well it is my thoughts about a name anny way.
