Buying, selling, wheeling, dealing. Buy low. Sell high. When do you partner up and when do you go it alone? You gotta know when to hold ’em. You gotta know when to fold ’em.
I went to the stock market and did a business.
And business is the order of the day if you’re Ferengi. In Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises, players take on the role of Ferengi traders, looking to make a profit on Deep Space 9. It’s a new game coming from WizKids.
From the announcement:
WizKids today announced a new creation from the mind of veteran game designer Christophe Boelinger, Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises. On the Deep Space 9 station, Ferengi wheel and deal legal and illegal items to gain the most profit. In this game, players jump into the role of a Ferengi merchant and work their way through the market in order to achieve the rank of First Clerk.
In Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises, 3 to 8 players will buy and sell their wares, trying to monopolize one particular product in order to gain greater profit. However, once other Ferengi get those same items for sale, it becomes a matter of who’s the better negotiator. Do you work together to gain the same profit, or do you agree to cooperate, then sell at a lower price to steal all the profit for yourself? Be wary of special action cards that can mess with your business and remember the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition in order to gain the most return for your investments.
