I've been a science-fiction fan since aged 13, and a wargamer from the age of 18. I'm now 52. I like a lot of different types of games, but amongst my favourite type is the space empire game.

There have been very many space empire games, but how do they rate in terms of popularity?

To qualify, the game must be a strategic empire building / conquest game.

I'd like to see a space empire game that uses the card-driven approach of wargames such as We The People, combined with the area movement of wargames such as Storm Over Arnhem and the fog of war created by block games such as Hammer of the Scots.

This hybrid Euro Ameritrash game looks awesome...ordered but not yet received. From what I've read so far I'm anticipating that this is...the ONE (at least, for me).

The latest version of Twilight Imperium, with mighty box and great miniatures. I've got it, but haven't yet played it. I must play this soon!

I was a great fan of the original Starcraft computer game. The latest version looks amazing.

The board game has the usual high quality components from Fantasy Flight Games. I've played a couple of games and I've enjoyed it. A good conversion of a RTS computer game.

Somewhat abstract, but still a classic. Some people seem to hate it, but I enjoy it. I have the WEG/GW version, and the Hasbro version (by far the best looking version to date). I love the alien power cards.

As everyone knows, this was heavily influenced by the original Star Wars movie, and it's a real classic. There are strong strategic elements, with some elements of role-playing.

Imperium is the classic interstellar conquest game, with the graph connection board making for an interesting tactical situation.

The original Twilight Imperium, which I used to own (along with expansions) and have played. Good, but not great (especially when you add in the expansions).

I've got this one, and played it quite a bit. Stellar Conquest is the "Conquistador" of space empire games. Very bland looking, but not a bad game.

Well, it had to happen didn't it? I own it, but haven't played it, and I gather it's pretty good.

This covers the Star Trek universe, and is a redevelopment of Federation Space. I owned and played the latter, but haven't tried this version.

I haven't got it, nor have I have played it. I assumed (incorrectly, it seems) that it met the criteria for the list.

Based on the E. E. "Doc" Smith books.

Throneworld is the "Axis and Allies" of space empire games. A very well designed game, with a fair amount of chrome whilst remaining very playable.

I'm coming to this party late, but figured I would add my upcoming game Supernova. It's about exploring the galaxy, expanding your empire, taking over planets, and earning some money to upgrade your fleet. Oh yeah, and kicking your opponent's butt with cool space battles that use 3D space to help determine the outcome.

This is the classic (unofficial) "Risk" of space empire game. I've played it to death, and still quite enjoy it for a laugh.

Thanks to Peter Schott for jogging my memory. This is a strategy game based on FASA's Battletech universe (not Mech Warrior, as I recalled).

I played this a couple of times long ago, and remember enjoying it.

A real SPI gem, with both tactical and strategic elements. Set in our solar system.
