Hoping to make your fortune, you've traded everything you owned for your own merchant starship. It's an old, worn-out tramp freighter, badly in need of repairs (and a few upgrades), but it's all yours. Now you've got to get it trading. You'll have to take it beyond the relative safety of the Alliance worlds to the rough frontier planets bordering alien Hovahlen space. It's a risky gambit, and making poor choices in cargoes could result in losing everything, including the ship. Will a corrupt port boss need to be bribed? Could expedited unloading/loading allow you to move out ahead of schedule? Will picking up passengers or speculative cargoes provide unexpected profits, or will smugglers or stowaways get you in trouble?
AstroNavis Merchant Advanced is a major expansion of AstroNavis Merchant, a solitaire freight shipping boardgame set on the frontier of human space in the 2310s. ANMA introduces realistic merchant economics and ship management to the science fiction universe. It defines your ship, and the worlds you'll visit in detail and provides special events that can turn every visit to a port into an adventure. ANMA includes the complete, original AstroNavis Merchant boardgame so new players can easily learn the core system.
