I really enjoyed this game when it came out. Then my buddies got a copy with the expansion and it became overwrought and clunky. Here's hoping the new version allows you to play with or without.

My game group still has a phrase -- "Jeffing" which is an indication that someone forgot to take something on their turn and than a couple of player turns later just reaches across the board to the bank and takes it, apparently at random. Our friend Jeff would forget to take his free resource during his turn in this game, on a fairly regular basis, and would just grab it in the middle of someone else's turn. The first time he did it none of us had any clue what he was doing, so my buddy Bob figured it was open season and just reached across and took something too. The rest of us followed suit, and Jeff had to explain why he grabbed the resource. We all said "me too" and Jeff then got pissy with us. That was the special moment that sealed it.

Eventually we opted to officially define it, "taking something you were supposed to get on your turn at least two people's turns after yours." We still use the phrase now, 10 or 12 years later, in spite of Jeff no longer attending and Bob having moved away to Missouri.

Wow, was JUST mentioning that this game was due for a reprint this past weekend! Was playing classic Merchants of Venus and bemoaning the lack of on-board info. Starfarers of Catan style physical upgradable ships would have been perfect. I hope they fix the breaking clip issue :P

Maybe I should play it again. I played it once a while back. I remember the ships being pretty cool, and the game taking four hours to play.

The thing I remember most is the ships were always getting knocked over and falling apart. So I'm thinking that the "all new" materials refers to redesigned ships that are less fragile.
