Prentice as the Hydran player has recovered a bit during the mid game and looks to see if she can get her technology juggernaut rolling. Dietrich’s Eridani forces seemingly have an inability to kill Ancients and what seemed like a promising lead has dwindled after repeated failed attacks. Moving into the end game who’s going to rally for the win?
We advance to the mid game and Prentice as the Hydran player is struggling mightily to get a foothold. Dietrich on the other hand has build out fairly well as the Eridani player and prepares to take the fight to some Ancients.
Time for a two player game of Eclipse and this time let’s use some of the additional races. We’ll use the Hydrans, masters of technology, and the Eridani, a mighty empire on the decline for this session and see which one is the master species.
It is the final turn of our battle between Jocasta and Beatrice. Jocasta seems to have dominated most of the game though Beatrice is making a good showing in the final rounds. Let’s wrap up this two player game and see who comes out the victor.
We are entering the final turns of this Eclipse session and Jocasta has taken over the center hex and is forming a massive fleet of rift cannon power interceptors. Can Beatrice stay competitive in these final rounds of the game and come up with a strategy that will enable her to get the win?
Things have evened out between our two players going into turn 4. Beatrice has recovered and Jocasta has taken first blood, taking out some of the Ancients. Things are set to escalate quickly as we approach mid-game.
Setup is done and it’s time to get the game going. In this episode we’ll step through the first turn of the game. We’ll talk at a high level about each possible action and then dive into Beatrice and Jocasta exploring the galaxy.
Let’s go through getting the table prepared for a game of Eclipse. We’ll concentrate on getting everything we need ready for a two player Terran game and then following videos will step us through the game. This won’t be an exhaustive rules review, just enough to get the pieces on the table so we can start exploring the galaxy.
A long time Eclipse fan it’s been painful waiting for the next edition to arrive, but it finally has. Let’s unbox this version of the game and take a look at the components. Once everything is punched and sorted let’s see how well the built in organization works.
