I just received my Print 'n Play copy of Merchant of Venus, and while it is very nice and all the pieces/parts are first rate, I just prefer my original AH version from the 80's, so I've decided to put it up for sale/trade. I also will include playing card money done through Artscow vs. the standard paper money.

If interested, PM me an offer of money or games. I will be out of town after 6PM EST Friday July 1st, and won't be back until Sunday night July 3rd, so if I don't answer, it doesn't mean I'm not interested. I will consider all offers, but please be reasonable.

U.S only. Sorry, I don't like messing with international shipping.

Edit: I decided to keep the dice.

Re: Have: PnP Merchant of Venus (new), W: $$$ or games from "Want in Trade List"
I don't see you stating as such so not sure if you are aware but if you end up "selling" vs. "trading" you must run the sale through the BGG marketplace so BGG get's it's fair due....

Re: Have: PnP Merchant of Venus (new), W: $$$ or games from "Want in Trade List"
While making and playing games for which you hold no intellectual property rights is unlikely to get you into trouble, you slip into deeper waters when you start selling them. It would be like painting a bullseye on yourself if the IP holders decide at some point to make an example of someone (as the music industry has done with downloaders).

(Just thinking out loud - I have no legal expertise.)

Re: Have: PnP Merchant of Venus (new), W: $$$ or games from "Want in Trade List"
How exactly is selling this game I purchased and no longer want as a PnP any different from if I bought a new copy of Puerto Rico and then decided to sell it becuase I changed my mind? I'm not a business or anything, just someone who wants to try and recoup some of what I spent on something I changed my mind on.

Not trying to be mean or anything, just asking.

And to asnwer a previous question, if someone wants to purchase it for $, I will run it through the marketplace.

I wasn't trying to be mean either. I think it's somewhat like having a counterfeit $20 bill that you received in change. It's illegal for you to use it for a purchase, and you get no compensation for it if you turn it in. Far less serious, of course - IP violations for PnP games would fall under civil law, not criminal, and to this point the legal holders of those rights have taken no action (to my knowledge).

Due to potential legal concerns, I am no longer going to bother trying to sell/trade this. Better to have it rot in my closet than pay a fine for selling a PnP version of game that's 30+ years old.

Jeez, now I feel bad, Bruce. You realize I'm just an old gasbag, right?

Don't feel bad. Wasn't my intention. I guess I just figured it wouldn't be a big deal, but if there's potential to be, I'm not one to risk it.

I decided to gauge interest in trading. Please note that between the game and the playing card money it will likely take 3-4 games to make it a somewhat even trade. Please keep that in mind.
