Free Trader

"Free Trader" is a solitaire game with a theme of trading between planets trying to make the first four payments on your recently bought space ship.

Inspired by the "Traveller" RPG and the 80s computer game "Elite" you will explore the planets of the galaxy looking for and making the most of trading opportunities.

But the void between the planets is not safe. You'll find it inhabited by Pirates willing to attack you and take your burnt out spaceship as salvage. So you'll need to upgrade your ships defences while struggeling to meet the payments.

With the huge cost of defenses and ship upgrades will you be tempted to risk carrying illegal cargos? If you risk it, you'll have to watch out for the Interstella Police who patrol the unfriendly space above the skies of many planets.

Free Trader, is free! Download it by selecting one of the versions and art sets shown below. However if you want to encourage further free releases please consider purchasing the game by following the LuLu link at the bottom of the page. There is no difference between the Basic Set here and the one on LuLu.
