Not as epic as certain other space games but it doesn't take all frickin' day to play a six-player game.

One corner of the box is split. Contents are in very good condition. Two plastic component boxes are included - they fit snugly in the box, provide an extremely practical storage solution and massively reduce the set up time for the ship tiles. Also two very nice felt bags (I added at least one of them, the other one maybe came with the game, can't remember...).

Postage will be £5.79.

Starting bid £1. No reserve.

Ah Eclipse. The perfect game to play with my kids. (No that isn't right...)

A great lunch hour game! (That isn't right either...)

A game to keep because I love it and think it is great despite mever playing it with someone ever!

I have expansions, I have dreams of playing this someday but I don't know if it will happen. Yet I hold onto the game anyway. Is this a sickness?

A pretty slow week, as I spent most of my free time doing some painting around the house and hitting the bike trails.

Played some Sylvion (enjoying, but I do think it's a bit easy in its vanilla form - will work an expansion in soon) and Red7 (always, always Red7 - am I sick of it? A little, and yet never).

Main game of the week was talking my sons into playing a four-player game of Eclipse.

Only two of us had played before, and we got off to a rocky start when the two newbies started drawing hex after hex that contained ancients, and watched in frustration as the other two of us merrily expanded. Their aversion to the player board artwork and tons of unknown research components did not help this. "All of these aliens look as miserable being in this game as I am playing it", said my eldest. Yeah, the art's not great.

Things continued to get increasingly frustrating and contentious - and not in a good, game-based way - in the initial turns, as the two newbies suffered crippling economic shortages which limited their actions, and compounded their anger, to the point where I just wanted to stop playing.

And then, suddenly, the game seemed to click for the newbies. Thankfully some clear hexes were drawn, and they began to expand, research and upgrade. By mid-game, my eldest son, playing the Mechanima, had large fleets spread throughout his systems and starbases on all of his borders.

The second son, playing the Planta, never really recovered economically, but did use their ability to expand to his advantage (by quietly expanding away from everyone else).

Fortunately for him, his closest neighbor, my youngest son playing the Hydran Progress was much more concerned with me (Orion Hegemony). And wisely so. If my youngest son has learned anything from our games of TI3 and Eclipse, it is that his father will always attack him with a sizeable fleet at some point.

And attack him I did. Twice. And on both occasions I suffered crushing defeats (but I only initiated combat to score victory points anyway - seems odd that the loser in a battle also gets victory points).

The game ended with a Mechanima victory, followed by the Planta, Orion and Hydran, and took about three hours.

They all agreed that, despite the very rocky start, they ended up enjoying it. My eldest especially liked the economic and research elements. My second son said he liked it better than TI3, but still didn't like it...but would play it again with a different race. My youngest got to build souped up ships and blow stuff up, so that was his only requirement. And I got everyone to the table for a four player Eclipse.

So much to enjoy about this one particularly the ship blueprints and developing the Galaxy. The only minor quibble is that it can be difficult when you don't get lucky with the exploration tiles.

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Plastic "ice cube trays" that hold the wooden cubes in place and alignment to the tech grid. IIRC, they were on Ebay, but another site too. $15 each.

6 of them for a 6p game = $90, more than the cost of the game

10 of them for $150 if you spring for the expansions that allow you to play to 10p wow

I've met someone who used a plastic "wire frame" (similar to sprues that you punch plastic minis from), but that only costs $5 each, even though it wasn't as nice as this (ie. some of the cubes popped up)

The first time I played this, the owner of the game messed up several rules - the biggest one being that the randomly drawn VP tiles are to be kept hidden and face down.

By having all your VP exposed for everyone to see, the final rounds of the game turned into number crunching to see who was exactly in the lead, along with annoying Mario Kart / Munchkin game play where everyone ganged up on the leader of the moment. "How many exact points do I have to steal from this person to put me in first place, etc."

I eventually picked up my own copy of the game that I was planning to use as trading fodder, but after reading the rules for myself, I realized that the game is actually very well designed, and is now my favorite game.

I still don't like playing with that person because he tries to use his own incorrect rules and completely destroys the delicate balance of the game.
