Game Description:

Merchant of Venus.  A wonderful blending of the excitement of an exploration game with the strategy of an economic game.  It is a fabulous adventure through space.  With the recent rerelease of this classic you can now play this game without having to cut out 437 circles and affix them the wooden discs.  Fantasy Flight Games’ new release of Merchant of Venus allows you to play the classic version from 1988 or try out their updated version of the game.  I focus my explanation of the classic game but discuss both versions of the game at length.  Plus, I could not do this episode without asking one of my friends to come along for the ride.  I hope you enjoy the episode.
