Adds two new level III hexes (the supernovae) which have their own rules when explored and placed on the map. They can explode turning into empty space whether or not anyone controls them depending on the roll of 2D6 done just before the clean-up phase of each game turn once discovered. They are rich in resources although they do not ever have Ancients or discoveries, and if still around at the end of the game they do not yield influence VPs. Along with these tiles is a new Ancient technology discovery: Ion Missiles (three yellow dice).

The new hex tiles are interesting and worth using although they are unpredictable and can be hard to hang on to toward the end of the game unless you have been researching like crazy and evenly across the three research categories. Any new Ancient technology is most welcome as well. A great mini-expansion - if you love this game you want to try and track it down.

A nice little addition to a great game. Not necessary by any means, but fun nevertheless. It adds some randomness, so it might not be for everyone, but it is optional (and let's not forget, free! ).

Note: plays are for the prototype version. Since the release of the game all further plays are logged under the main entry.

Supernova adds a push your luck mechanism to the game. How long will you survive? Depends on the roll of the dice and the amount of techs owned by the player with the fewest. Another easy to add in expansion that I will use almost every time I play.

Great mini-expansion. It is just what it is. Don't expect it to be "super balanced". It was meant for adding more variety and unexpected tension to the game. You can base your strategy on having that particular tile or taking over that particular tile. Or you don't and discard. But more variety is always a good thing in Eclipse.

A fun little expansion. Can be unbalancing though: you gain many cheap resources early in the game. If the nova explodes early in the game it might create two scenarios: either the player is plunged into a economical regress he cannot escape from, or the player gets an uninvadable (or at least hard to invade) "island" beyond the nova, which he can keep expanding by exploring further out.

Added these randomly to the III pile and removed the extra bits. Both game eventually in the play... and both exploded in to a supernova. In the same turn :/ And one of them had my colony on it. But was still fun

Not a necessary expansion by any means, but it does add some fun to the game. The Supernova sectors usually give the player who discovers them an early boost but so far they have always exploded sooner or later, usually no later than by turn 6 or 7. The Ion missile discovery tile is just icing on the cake but does provide a viable strategy to counter big missile only ships with weak defences.

This is a fun, but frustrating expansion. It doesn't give any VPs so at a certain point you just have to accept that it isn't worth it to maintain absolute diversity in your tech.

It can be lead to some tough luck, but the reality is, you ultimately choose whether to play it or not, if you get it early it can be a real boon.

I like the new alien tech.

These are some interesting new tiles. They tend to either have a huge impact on the game, or a negligible one, thus they are widely regarded as somewhat unbalanced. Still, pretty cool for occasional variety. The missile discovery is a cool bit and a welcome addition to the stacks.

I shuffled the game components into the base game, so it's not a long shot to consider, that this expansion is played as much as the base game.

[after 2 plays] I think the supernova tiles while adding more luck to the game, are nice and not imbalanced much.

A potentially powerful addition to the game, especially if you can explore it early. I keep saying that chances are slim the Supernova will ever explode, but it seems to prove me wrong every time and way earlier than I expect.
