#9: Merchant of Venus

I played this one solo, after getting a Print & Play Productions copy of the Dathkadan redesign with all the bells and whistles (quite some expansion content, too), back before first Stronghold and then FFG wanted to re-publish the thing.

It's one of my more expensive game boxes today, and I might well play it again some time. For now, it's a bit too complicated for family games (my older son is six), and too trivial for serious gamer nights. So it'll remain in the gaming closet for now.

The game shows its age, with roll-and-move mechanisms and all, but it has aged relatively well. And I like the Dathkadan design better than any of the other versions, so yay.

And then there are days like this. After years of looking for it, Merchant of Venus finally peeks off a shelf at me. Complete, punched and in great shape. Thrifted a copy of this once back in the early 90's, sold it and haven't seen it since. $2.39 at Goodwill.

But wait...what's this?

About Merchant of Venus (second edition) for the classic game:

1) What is it?
Is the essence of pick and delivery game, with a racing aspect (the first to X money). This mechanic counts for around 85% of the game, with the remaining 15% being exploration, ships upgrades, finding planets and revealing obscure points of the cosmos, building spaceports and factories, etc. And you will be bound to take goods and passengers from point A to point B for a long time, as the playing time clocks around 3 hours.

Therefore, the game is all about finding the best routes, trying to take the best deals, and make every stop counts towards the final goal.

Could be a rail game, but it's in space, so it's sci fi.

Played on 12 MAR 2016

Number of Players: 4

A fun pick up and deliver game, that took me too long to figure out my trade roués and to get them going. I started making a lot of money in the later turns, but not enough to catch up. I would play this again.

Personal Rating: 7

Friday 7, this was my first time planning a game using the BGG planning list. I've been curious about this game for a while. Tony was so generous to bring and teach his vintage copy. The chocolate covered cherries were banned from the table. Played with Celina, Tony, Katherine, and Jason bossypants. I was a little worried when Tony started out saying it was a pick up and deliver game since I'm not fond of that type of game. I found I enjoyed it in spite of that. I found the names of goods hilarious and it was fun watching Katherine wipe the floor with us. It did run long and we got very tired so cut it short by a couple of turns since it was obvious no one was going to catch her. I was very glad we were staying at the hotel that night.

I am a proud owner of a lovely handmade edition of this game. The board does not change but the origin of goods does and so does the demand. For some reason that does give the feeling of exploring the universe.

Love this game and still holds up compared to today's games. I've pimped the hell out of it! But still own an original edition along with my own hand made copy.

Here's my group playing it from 2008.
