Star Cartel is a space trading game of making the right bets at the right time. Players take on the role of traders and smugglers, trying to maximise the value of the goods they have stockpiled, while minimising the value of other player's goods.
Trading goods to the Cartel increases their value on the black market, but you can't stash what you've traded away. Upgrade your ship, stockpile your loot and remember that in space, no-one can hear you scheme.
