Welcome to the Star Cartel! You've spent too long in wretched hives of scum and villainy and you're ready to hit the skies and make your fortune. Now that you've joined, you must navigate the black market and play it smart. Every trip you will load your ship with available goods and possibly stash some contraband. Earn enough and you can buy a better ship, but the Cartel's prices are ever in flux. Will you risk your future on illicit plants, carry a mix of med-kits and energy crystals, or rush as quickly as possible to get that special ship? 

Star Cartel is a light stock manipulation game that is easy to learn but difficult to master. Upgrade your spaceship, stockpile luxury goods, and remember that in space no one can hear your schemes.
