The object of the game is to amass the greatest amount of money. This is accomplished by establishing vast interstellar shipping lanes, and purchasing stock in the companies that control those trade routes. During the course of the game, stock appreciates in value as the shipping companies become larger. Also, smaller companies can be merged into larger ones, and stock in the smaller firm is converted into stock in the larger one as described below.
Each turn, the computer will present the player with five prospective spaces to occupy on a 9 x 12 matrix. These spaces will blink very slowly and one will have a small diamond in it. You may move the diamond to whichever blinking spot you wish by pushing the SPACE bar. Hitting the M key will choose that space for your output.
There are four possible moves a player can make:
Next the computer adds stock dividends to the player's cash on hard (5% of the market value of the stock in his possession), and offers him the opportunity to purchase stock in any of the active companies on the board. Stock may not be sold, but the market value of each player's stock is taken into account at the end of the game to determine the winner. If the market value of a given stock exceeds $3,000 at any time during the game, that stock splits 2 for 1. The price is cut in half, and the number of shares owned by each player is doubled.
The computer randomly determines whose move it is and presents the information in the pattern of dots at the upper right hand side of the graphic display. There is one dot to the extreme right of the display for each player in the game. The dot beside row one is for player one, row two is player two, etc. One of the rows will have two dots in it. That signifies whose turn it is.
Note: the player may look at his portfolio at any time during the course of his turn by typing "S".
