Description Edit | History

While the galactic conflict escalates and several new factions are trying to get a foothold on the galaxy, the adversaries suddenly need to find allies among themselves to face the rising threat. The systems previously thought to be empty are suddenly swarming with Ancients – whole worlds of them, with ship capabilities way beyond anything seen before.

They are not willing to negotiate.

Eclipse: Rise of the Ancients, the first full-size expansion for Eclipse, introduces several new additions to the base game, such as Rare Technologies, Developments, Alliances, Ancient Homeworlds and Warp Portals. There are also three new player boards with four new different alien species to choose from. New components allow up to nine players in one session.

Due to the modular design, you can use all of these additions or just some of them in any game of Eclipse, according to your preferences and play style.

The Ancients are rising. Will your civilization rise to the occasion and emerge victorious?

9 Hex breakdown & analysis - Rise of the Ancients + Supernova
This is a new and improved version of the file I uploaded previously. This worksheet breaks down each of the types of sector tiles in the game and gives probabilities for all of the tiles' characteristics (planetary types, ancients, discoveries, etc). The file now includes the base game, Rise of the Ancients, the Nebula, Supernova and Pulsar promos, and the hexes included in Ship Pack 1. Furthermore, since I'm sure there are lots of folks out there that aren't Eclipse completionists, the file is broken out into three tabs: one for just the base game, one with the base game and RotA combined, and one with everything combined. That way if you only own some of the awesome stuff available (or if you're nuts and want to strip out some expansions for a specific game), you can still make...
