Its time for Star Trek fans to brush up on the rules of acquisition. WizKids has announced Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises, a new board game designed by Christophe Boelinger that will put players in the position of a Ferengi merchant on the Deep Space Nine space station.
Players will make deals for merchandise, both legal and illegal, in order to gain the greatest possible profit. Each player tries to climb the market ladder to achieve the rank of First Clerk.
Here's the description from WizKids:
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.
Star Trek: Galactic Enterprises is scheduled to release in June 2018. The game will be on display with a playable demo at the GAMA Trade Show in Reno, Nevada on March 13th or 14th during showroom hours.
