Finally a good space game!! I avoided this game for years because I believed it was just another large hex honeycomb looking 4x space game. It is not!! This is an adventure game, a true space opera!! Thank the gods!! I could not handle another 4x honeycomb game. 4x is not space opera, it is civ with spaceships.

If you want to be in a Firefly, Han Solo, Stars My Destination type world, look no further. I just played Eclipse for the first time, and while an exceptional "design" it is just an echo of previous Twilight Imperium ideas. Phantom League was a refreshing joy for me.

Like Zanzair, the combat is unfortunately kind of horrible. So far I haven't played a game where card combat has worked. FFG has been cranking out games recently that use card combat, and each one has diminished the overall experience for my game groups. I can understand the appeal of hoping it will be cool design-wise but so far card combat adventure games are like playing a gorgeous game of Runebound and then having to play an overly complicated game of MtG for 5 minutes. Oil and water beverage really.

I will house rule combat if player are avoiding the game due to combat. This game is a gem, and should not sit on a shelf if the combat gets in the way!!!

Very good game based on Elite (the computer game), and feels like it also. Nice product (even if the box is too small) with great potential for an expansion. The pirate ships are mostly tough, but there is a nice balance between trading and combat and their relative risks.

Once you are passed the initial trading and building up your ship stage, this game really comes into its own. Tremendous fun and furious play. It is "Elite" the boardgame and those of us old enough to have played the original will love this game!
.... Now hwere's that docking computer?

This rating is on the high side. I want to love this game. I do love this game. Just be prepared for frustration, mishaps and you best laid plans brought to naught due to event cards. If you can roll with that, you will probably enjoy this card board version of "Elite". (Though I hate, hate, hate the alien encounter card that turns you into an avatar energy being )

One feature which is really cool is the half hexes, thus allowing for a much greater variety of combinations then with just hexes...
Rating is for play with MH & PA expansions and the COMBO rulebook.

Regelwerk 4.0.3. macht einen sehr guten Eindruck!
8-> 8.5
8.5 -> 8

Direkter Konkurrent ist Merchant & Marauders.

Hauptunterschiede der Spielmechaniken:
PL - taktischere Kämpfe, mehr Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten
M&M - eher Glückslastiges aber flüssigeres Spielerlebnis

5 Personen Spiel mit 3.5.0. -> 8 Punkte! Toll!
6 Personen Spiel mit 4.0.3. -> 1 Miner, 1 Kämpfer (NPC), 1 Erkunder, 3 Händler. Sehr ausgeglichenes Spiel, endete bei 8(Händler)-7(Erkunder)-7(Miner)-7(Kämpfer)-6(Händler)-5(Händler). Hin und wieder ein paar längen zwischen den Spielzügen, ansonsten aber super zu 6.!

Loved the game, but in the end the combat system just didn't do it for me. And i couldn't think of a way to change it to my satisfaction.

Love it - lots of room to grow into this one. Disappointed that the expansion is so hard to get if you didn't preorder and seems necessary to fill the game out i.e. going to the Dark Side offers very little in the way of benefits in the base game so not really worth it and that is a shame. I wanted to trade in drugs and slaves in my first game and quickly found that it was a mistake and cost me the game. Just to difficult and others will pass you by as you try to make that big dangerous score. The chances of success are just to low. BUT - worth investigating more I suppose - attacking as much as possible and trading in slaves and drugs sporatically when your odds are the greatest. The Dark Side just calls... :-)

Very good game. I would suggest to play it always with the variant, which allows you to select cards for a battle from the battledeck and not randomly draw cards from the batteldeck.

This is a really fun storytelling almost rpg-ish type of game. Feels a lot like merchants and marauders in space. The combat system can be a little drawn out but it is unlike any other combat system I've seen in a game. I really liked The Phantom League! More expansions!!!

Really nice game, lots of interesting tactics and a great 'elite' or 'X' board game. Loses a few marks as the rules are a little clunky (especially combat), and the two player game leaves a little to be desired.

Otherwise, a great game.
