This game was played solely as a Play-by-Mail (PBM) game, where participants took turns by postal mail and, later, received their turn results. Some PBM games had no published components; others offered a published player's manual or introductory setting guide, etc. Salient details may be noted here in the description - especially for games with no published component.
In an age of Imperial oppression, tyranny and bad etiquette, illegal trading practices are often the only recourse for an honest businessman like yourself. The Core has been around for a long time, and it'll certainly be here long after you've departed, so why not make a tidy profit while you're here? Hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right? In Smuggler's Run, you're a struggling interstellar trader who is always one step ahead of the law and one step behind in your bills. It's a game of galactic economics, slippery merchants and quaint adventures set in a science fiction universe where the only thing more hazardous than a laser rifle is a petty bureaucrat. Customize your ship, make a profit, pay your taxes, learn a skill, gamble, barhop, explore, invest... and try not to get yourself throttled while you're at it.
