Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy

Supporter

I have recently fallen in love with the idea of #Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy. This is the second edition of #Eclipse. It is a big beautiful 4x game. It looks like what would happen if TI4 and a economic euro game had a baby. It doesn't have a dedicated solo mode, but I am not planning on being only a solo gamer for the rest of my life. The first edition, #Eclipse, had user created solo variant that was decently well regarded. It is a weight that I can get my group back home to play. It is short enough that I think I can get them to play it. When Covid is not a thing, I go back 1-? times a year anyways. All this to say, I am seriously thinking about saving up for when it becomes more readily available in retail.

Do any of you have any experience with this? How about the first edition? Have any of you played that? How about comparisons between 1E and 2E, do any of you have opinions about that. To be honest, the component quality and the in-box storage solutions are massive reasons for me to wish to go with the second edition.

It was absolutely something I thought about when I was looking at TI4. It looks very very cool and like an absolutely crazy experience.

'I love the storage solutions' - I love how nerdy this hobby is 😀
