Suprised this hadn't turned up yet. Not very obscure as it was published by both AH and SPI but other criteria fit. Ambitious title with a lot going on. I liked the card pull mechanic for resolving missions. Blatant Star Wars rip-off but fun none-the-less.

A more recent entry - as written, the game probably
doesn't deserve too much attention, but with a bit
of tinkering, this could be every bit as interesting
as Republic of Rome.

Last time I looked I was the only listed owner of this on BGG. The game is basically Risk-in-Space, with planets instead of countries and solar systems in place of continents. There is a black hole at the center of the galaxy, and you could set up another board beside the first and travel back and forth between galaxies via the "wormhole". The game came in a nifty blue tube.

I bought the game directly from the designers at a wargaming con in Tulsa, OK back in 1984 when it first came out, and never saw them again. 20+ years later, when I lived in Shreveport, by strange coincidence the brother of one of the designers attended the same church I did. He tried to put me in touch with his brother so I could get more details about the game and its production, but his brother would never reply to my e-mails.

Although Titan: the Arena or Colossal Arena may not be obscure, I think this Knizia/Greenwood collaboration is. You can definitely see where Greenwood put in his two cents, as with certain cards you can attack other players' ships ("bets"). The space theme is definitely neat as well. I like this game a whole lot.

The map alone made this pretty unapproachable.

Finally scored my own copy, hoping to get something special
out of a game which was designed with such obvious lack of
sanity.

This microgame used the Godsfire-type map for a 3-D space war in a 'pocket universe', if I remember correctly. I also recall that the rules seemed funky and difficult to interpret back when I got it back in the late 70's/early 80's. I had almost all of the Metagaming microgames at the time, which I liked quite a bit. This one, though, never could figure it out well enough to play it. Seems like the quality of the Microgames were going downhill at this point...
