Popping the lid off one of these trays during setup, you’re met with a delightful amount of colorful bits. However, on the plus side, it has some very good examples of gameplay broken down between 4 fictitious players to give you a better sense of how Eclipse plays out.

I'm thinking about things like component quality, setup/tear down, expansions, rules, ease of play, etc.In a review of Eclipse in Black Gate, John ONeill said "There's more to the game than just cruel matriarchal domination and deep-space explosions. There is a bit of player interaction based around the typical combat type parts and if you play a 4 player game or more you open up diplomacy! Not only that but then they throw in a bunch of letters as well and they are all color coded the exact same.

I haven’t touched on the production values, which are excellent, or the spaceship miniatures themselves which are glorious.Our ultimate guide to board game cafes has everything you need to know about what a board game cafe is, or how to find one in your area!

The different players colored cubes decorating the board actually go to liven it up even further and in the center of it all…. I bought and played my first few games of Eclipse: Second Dawn in January 2021, which means that I have only been able to play it with one other person: my wife. The dice holders did not hold the dice neatly as seen in the content description and the dice colors did not match (The rulebook may have been shown the 1st edition of Eclipse 2nd Dawn). Even if you only get it off the shelf a couple of times a year, that’ll be well worth the epic science fiction event that takes place everytime you do.According to Metacritic, the game was received with "generally favorable" reviews and an average score of 87/100. You can choose not to place it if what you draw isn’t quite what you’re looking for but you don’t get to draw another (there are exceptions based on your race). To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The game board itself is composed of many tile pieces that form the overall galaxy once fleshed out and explored. Your opponents are expanding towards you and you need to upgrade your fleet but you absolutely need to place that economy cube or you’re looking at bankruptcy, so you’ll need to spend influence over there and… well… this is where the complexity comes in. By submitting this form, you agree that we may process your information in accordance with these terms.Set up is as easy as asking what color they want and then handing them their tray that has everything they need inside. What I love about Second Dawn is that it takes some of the best features of New Dawn and its three expansions, incorporates those features, adds some rebalancing of the species and technologies, adjusts the rules to get rid of some of the (very few) annoying things about New Dawn, updates the graphic art, and adds storage trays for all of the many playing pieces — all to create what I consider to be an ideal version of the game.
