One of the best Knizia games for me. The mechanic used to bid on the land areas works wonderfully. I also think it is cool that before the 2nd part of the game, people lose their areas, and you have to bid again to get them. It makes the game tense and interesting. **Update; it didn't hit the table in 7 years so I let it go. Maybe I will regret it, if so, I will just buy it again.
Played it only twice, but I was very impressed. I liked the mechanics a lot, and to me this is the best worker placement type of game. It is maybe a bit too long, and theme is kinda boring. But it is a very good game.
Very solid game. Had high hopes for this one. But unfortunaltely it's still a bit too long for my group. I also think that the fighingmechanic is a bit complicated and long, and there are MANY bits to set-up and keep in order in Eclipse. Sold it.
Good economical game. I really like how the prices of the resources changes during the game. Some of the rules feels tacked on, and I don't like that you want to be the second best player during most of the game. Still a good game with 3+ players.
Such an elegant wargame. The planning phase is perfect, and is one of the best mechanics in any game I have played. The tower (used to resolve wars in the game) is simple and effective. And exciting! Awesome game. Buy it.
