PostPosted: Mon Nov 05, 2012 8:30 pm    Post subject: Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy

Eclipse the board game is here and it's a doozy.






From the back:
"New Dawn for the Galaxy

The galaxy has been a peaceful place for many years. After the ruthless Terran-Hegemony War (30.027 - 33.364), much effort has been employed by all major spacefaring species to prevent the terrifying events from repeating themselves. The Galactic Council was formed to enforce precious peace and it has taken many courageous efforts to prevent the escalation of malicious acts.

Nevertheless, tension and discord are growing among the seven major species and in the Council itself. Old alliances are shattering and hasty diplomatic treaties are made in secrecy. A confrontation of the superpowers seems inevitable - only the outcome of the galactic conflict remains to be seen. Which faction will emerge victorious and lead the galaxy under its rule?

What Is Eclipse?

A game of Eclipse places you in control of a vast interstellar civilization, completing for success with its rivals. You will explore new star systems, research technologies and build spaceships to wage war with. There are many potential paths to victory, so you need to plan your strategy according to the strengths and weaknesses of your species while paying attention to the other civilizations' endeavors."







The game is for 2-6 players and although a bit complicated, it not dauntingly so. Once you've played a few rounds, you get the gist of the game. Once you've finished your first game, the varied ways to win and deeper strategies become clear.

The game includes 84 plastic miniatures, consisting of small, medium, and large ships for 6 different players. It also includes over 300 wooden pieces, mostly used for 3 different measurements of resource tracking. Additionally, there are over 300 tiles, including large hexagons representing different solar systems, a huge number of technology tokens, ship improvement tokens, colonization markers, alien ships, defensive satellites, and alliance tokens. Two dice bags and 18 colorful dice are also included.
