Description
Xandar hauled a piece of impossible furniture onto the bridge, curious why it sold so well across the galaxy. Designed by the Whynoms, the thing looked more like a chair than anything else, but the way it adapted to hold the wires dangling from his open engine assembly gave him the creeps. They said that impossible furniture could adapt to hold giant tentacles or slugs. Xandar shook it off. Space loomed before him, and his cargo holds were full. It was time to get rich.

Merchant of Venus is a board game of space traders and alien riches. Race through the galaxy on a wild dash for cash, locating and establishing vital trade lines to transport goods from the planets where they're common, to the planets where they can sell for maximum profit.

A day in the life of a space trader

Aliens sell you their goods, and you've got a deadline to hit high market on a distant world. Streamlining your trade route is vital, as is boosting your ride, tweaking it out with all the latest and coolest upgrades. However, money invested in your ship cuts into your bottom line, making it a tough choice each trader will face as they compete to become the richest and greatest space trader.

Pilots, lasers, and shields can help you bypass the hazards of space travel. Increased cargo holds let you transport more goods with each voyage, and better pilots and drives can speed your ship across the galaxy in record time. Meanwhile, you can pick up passengers able to pay for their rides and eke a profit out of the emptiest stretches of space. Transport enough, and your fame may translate to wealth later on, especially when alien cultures learn about your most distinguished guests.

A new lift-off for a classic game

This classic 1980's board game of interstellar trade and exploration is back in print! This is a new, fantastic edition of Merchant of Venus, one that remains true to its magnificently campy core, while expanding the game in surprising ways that will cause even the most hardcore fan to celebrate.
