        Starlanes is a graphics-done-with-text empire trading game. The details
are a little hazy, but it's basically a 2 to 4 player game. Each player
takes a turn. You buy stock in a company, and when you have enough stock,
you can create an outpost. You can add to exist outposts, and if two
outposts collide (because of a limited playing area, 16 rows by 30 chars,
maybe?), they merge. I think which ever is larger wins the merge, and your
stock is adjust accordingly. While not a complicate game by any means,
there are some various strategies to play. I'm pretty hazy on the details,
since it's been at least 15 years since I played the last game. I've always
wanted to find a PC copy (but never made much of an effort).

What's Starlanes? Can the source be had?
