Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy
From the Publisher...
The shadows of the great civilizations are about to eclipse the galaxy.
The galaxy has been a peaceful place for many years. After the ruthless Terran-Hegemony War (30.027-33.364), much effort has been employed by all major spacefaring species to prevent the terrifying events from repeating themselves. The Galactic Counsil was formed to enforce precious peace and it has taken many courageous efforts to prevent the scalation of malicious acts. Nevertheless, tension and discord are growing among the seven major species and in the Counsil itself. Old alliances are shattering and hasty diplomatic treaties are made in secrecy. A confrontation of the superpowers seems inevitable. Only the outcome of the galactic conflict remains to be seen. Which faction will emerge victorious and lead the galaxy under its rule?

|Amazing game! I love the depth and choices you have as you build your empire; the game will always unfold quite differently. Surprisingly, for a game with as many rules as it has, we almost never had to reference them during our play. Everything works pretty seamlessly!
