Profit for One!

Profit for One! is a popular Quintesson game they use to mainly fleece money from those who visit The Showcase Floor but it has roots in their culture before they lost their home-world.   It is played via physical cards, a random number generator, and dealer shuffled event card deck.   The player cards are a mixture of monetary cards, commodities, and stock actions. A typical play, for example, would be; Sell/Buy, 2.5 million, Solid-state electronics. The player cards that are played during a turn are shuffled back into the player deck at the end of each turn.   The random number generator generates two fields on the device. Loss or Profit and Event: Yes/No. Loss or Profit indicates if the player's turn was profitable or not.   The dealer pulled events alter multipliers of possible profit from commodities in the following turn. I.E. Next turn Energy Crisis on the homeworld. Energy units triple results.
