Product Description

An age of twilight shall once more spread across the galaxy. A broken empire shall once more be re-forged. Hidden powers from dark space shall come forth to make an ancient claim. War shall rage across space. Secret treaties, political whispers, and devious plots shall again echo through the halls of the imperial city on Mecatol Rex. TI3 is an epic empire-building game of interstellar conflict, trade, and struggle for power. Players take the roles of ancient galactic civilizations, each seeking to seize the imperial throne via warfare, diplomacy, and technological progression. With new oversize geomorphic board tiles, finely detailed plastic miniatures, hundreds of cards, and a massive plurality of options, TI3 will ship in a massive, epic-size box, with more than 200 masterfully sculpted oversize plastic miniatures - the typical TI units (Ground Forces, Cruisers, Dreadnaughts, Carriers, Fighters, PDS, and Space Docks) as well as two new units (the massive War Sun, and the Destroyer). TI3 contains new oversize board tiles, more than 400 cards, every known civilization of the Twilight Imperium universe, almost every expansion rule and component ever published for TI, a gorgeous graphical overhaul, and an impressive full color rules set. The TI gameplay has been refined and redone by original designer Christian T. Petersen. The new design features faster gameplay, and involves players in a far more active game experience with much less down-time. In addition, TI3 will include the new Race Cards, as well a dramatic new approach to the structure of the gameplay itself using the new Command system. Are you ready for another age of Twilight?

It is amazing game. Very versatile. It combines several board gaming techniques that some of you might recognize from games like Puerto Rico (the turn based exchange of roles), Settlers of Catan (hexagon tiles type of map building; conquering territories for recourses) and Risk (building forces and attacking enemy territories; solving conflicts with turn based dice fight). Another gaming technique (that is new to me at least) that brings nice twist to the game is the political card – simulating a parliament type of experience where players vote for laws that can change entirely certain game rules.

The background of the universe and the races reminds of Star Wars and Star Trek. There are multiple races among which each player can choose to play with; each race has few special feats that bring different bonuses to the players.

The game requires a lot of concentration, patience and a lot of free time, since the first learning games can take up to 8-9 hours (when played by 6 persons). After several games you may bring this time down to 5 and I guess even 4 hours if you play very regularly with the same set of players. Not recommended for kids. The box says 13+, but I would even say they should be older, since the set of rules is vast and quite complicated. But again this is what makes this game so good.

Expensive, but worth it if you're looking for a complex, involving board game which has everything from space battles to planetary invasions and back-stabbing galactic politics. Players each control a faction carving out control of a shattered galactic empire. The game is designed to ensure there's plenty of friction from the word go, and though players can form alliances in the end there will only be one winner.

Its complexity means it's also time-consuming: half a day for a three to four player game, and the more players you add the longer it takes. With expansions you can have up to eight players -- which means writing off your entire weekend!

There are pale copies of TI out there, but this game really is the daddy.

If you like good strategy games with a good dollop of politics and diplomacy, this game is for you. The game is long,especially on your first play. It took my about group 9 hours to get through a game (6 players). But at the end of that session the first question on everybodies lips was when can we play again.

One of the beauties of this game is that each game will tell a story of betrayal, subterfuge and war. But that story will be unique to that game, and it will be your story not some lame plot the designers thought up.

As I said it's a big game, it's an expensive game and it needs 5 players to really come alive. So if you like big sprawling Empire building games with a strong roleplay element and you have 4-5 friends who like that and have the time. This game will not disappoint.

Me and a bunch of friends get together regularly to play board games, and often end up playing until it gets light again outside. I started looking up Top 10 lists for six-player games to introduce to the group and, among a few others that I have also since bought and played, I came across this one. Epic space opera with a matching epic playthrough time.

There's a hell of a lot of stuff in the box - I spent the best part of two and a half hours carefully punching out all the cardboard pieces and cutting out the plastic pieces. There are even mores rules to read through too - I downloaded a copy of the ruleboook before I bought this and studied it for a fortnight, no exaggeration, just to try and help teach it to the guys a bit quicker. Despite that, the four of us who played managed to wrap it up in 8-9 hours - not bad considering we had a few breaks as well. Once we've had a few more games and everyone starts to understand it all, we should be able to get the play time down to an hour per player.

The gameplay itself was great! We used the base rules (none of the modular expansions that came with the game) and we got a good mix of tactics, negotiation and combat. Again, I'm sure once we've played a few more times it will be much quicker and more choatic. We're all sci-fi fans in my group so the space setting is perfect. The plastic playing pieces are of great quality and supremely detailed. The inclusion of a Death Star-esque playing piece in the War Sun is a nice touch and a nod, I'm sure, to most Star Wars fans. The cards and Race Sheets are also good quality and, thankfully, the typo on each Race Sheet (the PDS cost should be 2 instead of 1) has been corrected.My only niggle is that you don't get enough D10 dice, but hey, dice are cheap.

Space, strategy, negotiation. TI3 is an epic board gaming event that delivers in spades. The shortest game takes a good 4 hours to play, and for the true experience you need to set aside 8 hours or more. If that sounds like a negative, then this probably isn't the game for you. But if you want a game that is engrossing, engaging, thrilling and tense; a game that tells an epic story that is different every time; a game in which every decision matters and the fate of a galaxy can turn on a single choice; then TI3 may just be the best game in the world.
