Merchant of Venus Game Night!

Looking to play a classic version of Merchant of Venus with a "long game" (not epic) master goal. (i.e. to 3000 space bucks).

 

If there is another copy of the game we can expand the number to play.

Unless we have someone that would like to be the host location, this will be at Dark Matter Games.

Please contact me if you have an original copy of Merchant of Venus or Fantasy Flight copy and want to play.

 

If the r.s.v.p. is full and you still want to see the game. Come to Dark Matter anyway.  Never know when there may be a last minute cancel.  I'm sure the owners of Dark Matter would love more foot traffic.

    Yo Venus Types:
    My experience is that original Avalon Hill is fun as is
    IMHO In my humble opinion.
    I really hope we can play this Sunday!!

They would be available for 60, 90, and 120 credits from the central space-station. I disagree that the person that discovered the relic would get a cut of the sales, since their availability is to rebalance items that give a potential runaway leader problem. The fact they got some free equipment should be enough reward.

      MrBill, two of us can't play in the morning, so you are welcome to join us at Dark Matter Games at 1pm.

      BTW do you object to the fan variant pilot circle (or whatever you want to call the spots that require a specific pilot number to get through) that was adopted by the designer for both Stronghold's version and Fantasy Flight, the relic copies, or both?

    Alright.. Well I can not make it till 1 no matter where we play. Bonnie works for me, but again I can't be there till 1, so we would need to hurry. And once again, I have not played the game so 3 hours might not be enough time...

    June 22, 2013

    • Steve

      Well it looks like Dark Matter Games is the only option. See you at 1pm there!

    Howdy, MrBill here. I want to play and have the original Avalon Hill Merchants of Venus. My normal Sunday game group meets at Bonnie Brae Hobby in Englewood if you want to start earlier at 10am or plan on playing at 1pm. Lemme know….. BonnieBrae closes at 4pm

      Hey Bill! I don't think the 3000 credits goal can be done (with setup) in 3 hours.
      I was hoping to go to a place closer to Green Mountain, but if the others want to.... If we play at Bonnie Brae Hobbies, I probably wouldn't make it until around noon.
      Dark Matter Games doesn't open until noon on Sundays, so if you'd like you could play in the morning and then come over to Dark Matter about 1-ish. DM doesn't close until 8pm.

      Bill have you seen the transition point that was added in the fan copy and FF copy? Also, I plan to put some sticky notes on plastic poker chips for duplicates of the ancient relic yellow drive, mulligan gear, jump start, and auto pilot. They are available once the original is found. They would be available for 60, 90, and 120 credits from the central space-station. I disagree that the person that discovered the relic would get a cut of the sales, since their availability is to rebalance items that give a potential runaway leader problem. The fact they got some free equipment should be enough reward.

    I would like to attend, but do not have transportation from Castle Rock at the moment. I do have a copy of the game with extra pieces to be able to play up to 12 players.

    • Steve

      Jeff, there is a group that meets in Castle Rock on some Saturdays. You might see if you can get some interest to play then.

    I'd love to join, but already have other plans for Sunday...

  • Wayne K.

    I would be down to get together and play it, no real location I can think of though. Ps I don't own the game not have I ever played it.

    June 16, 2013

    • Steve

      I can't remember if DM has a water cooler or what. There is a really good pizza place almost next door. I need to call and make sure we won't be a problem, then I'll announce it to the meetup group at large.

      Another gamer told me about Xia. Had to watch the youtube videos be certain, went ahead and backed it. Too bad it won't be sent until March 2014....

      Yeah those are my thoughts too lol. Alright sounds good.
