Merchant of Venus (Open Copy)
Merchant of Venus uses many elements that come together to form a very interesting game. Players take on the roles of space traders who move their ships through interconnected systems discovering new alien worlds to trade with. As players start to make money delivering commodities in a unique supply-and-demand system, their earnings can be used to purchase better ships and equipment (shields, lasers, engines, etc...) and construct their own spaceports (which speed up trading) and factories (which create better commodities). Variations included in the rulebook allow for interplayer combat. The player who first acquires enough total value in cash and port/factory deeds takes the day.This product comes from the Fantasy Flight Games Production Archive, which Gamezenter acquired directly from FFG. This copy was among those initial copies sent from the factory production line to FFG for quality control approval.
FFG production archive items are open copies. All FFG production archive copies could have one or more of the following aspects:
- No shrink wrap
- Production Approval sticker from FFG on the front or inside
- Markings inside of box cover with approval dates or production notes
- Punched out/loose components
- Components out of shrink wrap
- Some shelf wear on the box
- To the best of our knowledge these are complete games with no missing parts
Gamezenter is staffed by former FFG employees who are passionate about hobby games and are thrilled to be able to share these pieces of industry history that we helped bring to life.
