That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

Scorecard for the Week/Month/Year as of 8Jul2017:

5/7/254 plays of 5/7/135 total games, with 2/2/20 expansions employed.
Plays with 8/8/67 distinct opponents.

0/0/26 games acquired (plus 0/0/13 expansions.)
1/1/15 games sold/traded (plus 0/0/2 expansions.) - Diamonds Club.
0/0/20 games ordered (plus 0/0/10 expansions.)
Orders for 3 games and 0 expansions still outstanding.

With family and friends:
1x _7⅔_ Russian Railroads (with American Railroads and Mini-Expansion) - July 4 play #1. What could be more American in this year than playing a "russian" base game with an "american" expansion? In any event, we gave it a shot; and it was delightful (and very close in score.) None of us played particularly well (so y'all would have beat us): but we had fun.
1x __ Wabash Cannonball - Then son #1 and one of his college buddies played this one with me. It also seemed quite American; and it's a game I really enjoy - so I was delighted. And it ended up 85-84-84 - which is the closest result I've ever seen in Wabash Cannonball.

With the Lunch@work group:
1x _7_ Das Vermächtnis des Maharaja [New!] - This is quite clever. It's a little set collection game with an interesting economy. Scoring is pretty lumpy: so the result seemed a bit chaotic for the first play, but my guess is that this one is susceptible to distinctly better play with practice.
1x _7_ Matryoshka [New!] - This was funny: Jeff, as usual, paid more attention to the scoring rubric than the rest of us; and ended up well ahead of everyone else in score. I think we'd all play better if we gave it another shot. It's a bit clunky in practice; but the decisions were amusing.

With Paul from the Wednesday Gang (plus son #1):
1x _9_ Merchant of Venus - Quite amusing: Paul hit our $3000 goal a turn (or two) before the rest of us. The game was a bit pathological in that the first half-dozen systems explored contained a pair of lucrative loops: so there wasn't quite the impetus to explore the rest of the board after that point. Thinking about how it played out afterward left me wondering whether the choice of a larger ship (earlier, at least; I did end up with the largest freighter late in the game) might have worked better - if only for leaving fewer opportunities for the small fast ships.

Owned-and-unplayed: 1 (+0/-0)
Owned-and-played-once: 97 (+0/-0)

Outlook for the week: Visiting with family. Games might occur; and possibly cool ones. And - because of the company - I won't mind at all if nothing is played (though that would be surprising.)

We got to play in the tricked out version at BGG Con, and again - that pick up and deliver mechanism just sung to Chris. He would dive right in, and ask the more experienced players for help in learning not just how to play, but good strategy tips. Would absorb from everyone around him. Leaning heavily on his one neighbor for advice, he created a lovely trade loop, and easily took home the win.

I GM the WBC tournament have several copies of the original and one of the Fantasy Flight edition with both "Classic" & "Standard" versions.

Three problems with :
- The new "Standard version" is terrible.
- The "Classic" version is nopt the original game (despite the claims of FF--it's 95% there.) But 5% they changed, for no particular reason, are game imbalancing, but moistly ignorable.
- The artwork is totally unplayable. Not only overly busy for an already busy game, the color choices (gold. silver and bronze) and three selling prices on the goods counters (which have meaning in the standard game) make them indistinguishable. The font is hard to read. the numbers of the systems that will buy the goods are included in an icon which means you have squint to interpret them--and now they are required because of the ham-fisted nature renumbering of the systems. Etc. Etc. Etc.



I brought the new edition for three years to the WBC if any players wanted to play. No takers. Not one. General reaction: yuk gulp shake

I run the WBC tournament in this game.

When the Fantasy Flight version came out I thought it might inspire new playes--I haven't had one yet in the 4 years since.

Add to the The "Standard Version" is really, really, bad and the new artwork (clearly decided people who didn't try to play the game on.) is very difficult to play the game on.

Version: Avalon Hill (as pictured)
Condition: Good, complete (only partially punched). The cover is a bit scuffed/worn in some places, but it is nearly 30 years old after all. (I probably looked a bit raggedy when I got to 30.) Cover slightly pushed in at one place, but hardly noticeable.

Free shipping within the UK, probably via MyHermes (but let me know if you object to that courier).

This game may not be a good fit for gamers who like deep strategy, or who prefer themes that are executed in a more serious manner, but these same gamers may find that Merchant of Venus is a nice "halfway point" that they can enjoy with non-gamer family or friends.

Along with Magic Realm and Blackbeard, these games were my solo game Holy Trinity throughout the 90s. I've always thought I wanted a reissue of Magic Realm, but thinking that the original Merchant of Venus and the original Blackbeard are both better experiences than their revamps, I'm not so sure I want that any more.

Anyway, Merchant of Venus. Because of all the randomness and hidden information, this game was endlessly replayable for me. And was great fun with the cool alien races.

In this beloved sci-fi pickup and deliver game, players explore the planets of known space, forming trade routes and racing to earn enough money to win. Buy and sell impossible furniture, upgrade and customize your ship, enter the high stakes world of interstellar real estate. Just be sure to fulfill that demand for Space Spice before your opponents!

First edition. I will check again it is complete. It shows it's age (1988) but it has been looked after (before I got it in a g4gg lottery) so it's in good condition for a 28 year old game. I'm told it's better than the reprint.

I've never got it to the table.
