Special thanks to soft-bug of Vassalfactory.org for collaborating with me and helping fix some very critical issues. As of right now, the game is (as far as I know) 100% playable. I will be posting another tutorial for the updated version eventually, but most of the functionality should be the same. The only major artifact that I can't get rid of is an extra "peek" command upon clicking the exploration tokens or the IOU tokens. However, gameplay shouldn't be noticeably affected. -Cardshark1029, module designer.
This is the popular 1988 Avalon Hill game, Merchant of Venus designed by Richard Hamblen. All art used was designed by Michael Christopher, as part of a full redesign that can be found on BoardGameGeek.
This is still a work in progress. Any bugs or feature requests should be posted to BoardGameGeek
Version 1.1 (by Jonathan Watts)

- Factory Goods will now go to the correct location when pulled out of the cup, instead of to whichever factory happened to have been bought most recently!
