Gosh I miss playing it. But if it was online I would play the heck out of it.
Even bought the Broken Token organizer, although the Shadows of the Rift and Ship Pack 1 stuff doesn’t really fit.
I may need to put a weekend together to get Eclipse back to the table.
Anyway! If you dig Eclipse it needs some upvotes on Steam, apparently. I’m not sure what that means but I gave it a vote.

Not once have I seen a Tabletop Simulator thing that interested me at all.
Does it do all the calculations and stuff? Or just store gamestate? I’ve played a few Vassal games and it’s almost more trouble than it’s worth.
It’s on iOS
Moe Tousignant yeah I do believe I saw an iOS thing. I’m not a Mac guy unfortunately.
Paul Beakley figured it was worth a shot. It’s an excellent app. Actually helped us figure out we were playing something wrong (though that was some time ago and I don’t remember exactly what).
I also need to get this back to the table. I picked up the Rise of the Anchients expansion but haven’t even broken the shrink. It’s been so long since we played though I think I would need to schedule two games, one with just the base rules and one with the expansion.
Moe Tousignant us too. I think it’s been a year or more.
I want to fondle the Ship Pack 1 ships again!
Dammit, if there was only a Linux version…
Paul Beakley that I haven’t picked up yet. Someone pointed out that it’s not compatible with the other expansion, so I skipped picking it up.
Ship Pack 1? No, you don’t get representations of all the aliens that exist thus far. But! You do get six distinctly different designs. Six? I think. We don’t stick that closely to racial stuff: like, if you want to play blue but you want to play the time-travelers from Rift, get down with your blue self.
If I find myself getting back into it, I’m totally modifying the ships I have in my old Silent Death box, and maybe going looking for some leftover old Noble Armada boxes. At least spraypainting and washing.
This might be the way I get to play Eclipse. I sorta regret not taking your advice a while back and buying it instead of Twilight Imperium. I’ll never table TI, but Eclipse is 1000 times more palatable in far less time.
Adam Day told ya so. 🙁
I’m secretly cheering for the day FFG announces TI4, mostly to hear my local megafan(s) cry out in agony.
