Eclipse style expansion for TI

6 posts in this topic

 Hello,

I was down at the FLGS last night and test played a game of Eclipse. I love all the stuff that there is to love about it. But I find the artwork and background to be completely forgettable. Is there a TI expansion that will play like Eclipse, or plans to make such an expansion? Or do I have to buy and find space on my poor crumbling book shelf for Eclipse itself?

I will happily wait a few months for a TI, small box game, that uses existing TI tiles and plays like eclipse. Doesn’t even have to be original, a complete rip off would actually be perfect.

Thanks for your time and help

Not that they've announced, no.  I haven't had a chance to play Eclipse myself (though I would be interested to try it.)  However, from what I've gleaned of the rules, it seems like making an expansion that converts TI3 into Eclipse would involve a lot more rules changes than an expansion generally implies.  What you're really asking for here is a new edition of TI that plays like Eclipse.

If that's your only recourse, then yes, you need to find room for Eclipse on your shelf.

I don't honestly believe any such product is coming out at all.  Certainly not within a few months.  You could always buy Eclipse and then make a print and play total conversion to retheme the components in TI fluff style.  I may even be interested to see such a homebrew project, if I ever get around to playing/owning Eclipse myself.

 I have terrible luck, the only time I win is if someone gets up from the table for long enough that I can move some pieces around lengua.gif Whats BGG? It actually will be a fun experiment to incorporate the TI tiles and races into Eclipse.
