About this deal

And did I mention that each faction has unique, incredibly cool miniatures to represent all of this on the board? Games like Eclipse can often be a daunting prospect to play, but here there are a lot of things to help. At the end of each round, your bill is due, and the more actions taken and planets colonized, the more expensive your bill is going to be. HIGHLY detailed and foreboding gazing over the rest of the board just tempting players to take it on.

Will, thanks for this thoughtful review, and briefly comparing Eclipse 2nd Dawn with its more established cousin, Twilight Imperium.Will Hare is a board game enthusiast who dares to ask if life itself is just a series of dice rolls with no winner or loser. Rather than aiming for a full day or weekend of politicking and gaming, Eclipse condenses the interstellar 4X experience down to a few hours of tight, fraught conquest. These include six distinct civilizations with specific strengths and weaknesses, or the “default” Terran civilization on the back of each species’ board.

They are just awesome and I cannot say enough good things about Gametrayz and what they do for boardgames. It would’ve been easy enough to put the same four models in each box and slap a different coat of paint on them, but the ships are all custom-tailored to match each civilization’s theme and species fantasy.

I've looked all day and although I can find the other small extras elsewhere, Remnants is only available on Lautapelit. And it was only when playing a two player game that I really noticed this, which is why I mention it here instead of earlier. The third player might build a group of mid-sized cruisers that have incredibly strong hulls, which means they survive long enough for their ion cannons to poke a fatal number of holes in their opponents…you get the idea!

With that being said, when I first became aware of Eclipse : Second Dawn for the Galaxy a few years ago, I already had Twilight Imperium IV in my collection.For others who have played less, the promise of strategic variety, the polish and presentation of the components, and the sheer scale of the game are more than enough to justify it hitting the table over and over again. Your shipment will include a packaging list which will be your receipt and act as possible proof of warranty.
