Product Description:

Designed and produced as a “bookcase” game in 1988 by the Avalon Hill Game Company, Merchant of Venus is a science fiction trading game that has solitaire, two-player and multi-player variations. 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 with which to trade. 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 (for example, shields, lasers, or engines) and construct their own spaceports (which speed up trading) and factories (which create better commodities). The player who first acquires enough total value ($1000, $2000, $3000, $4000) in cash and port/factory deeds wins the game.

This copy of Merchant of Venus is in great shape. The box has seen a small amount of shelf wear but no rips or tears. Everything is complete, in great shape, and neatly sorted in a plastic tray. If this copy has ever been played, it wasn't very much. This is as nice a copy as you will find for a 25-year-old game.

This bookcase game would make for a wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys strategic science fiction/space games — who just may happen to be you!
