A game I enjoy though I get fooled each and every time into thinking that it is a light, relaxing game. It is not and requires careful planning.

This game puzzles me each time we play. Great idea, great theme (esp. if you know and enjoy the tv show). But sometimes the game just does not work - at least not for me and my group. I stongly hope that Pegasus exp. will fix this...

Somewhat similar to Space Hulk 3rd but SO MUCH better. Not too heavy but still offering interesting decisions for both players this works really well as a quick but satisfying crawl.

Initially, I wasn't a huge fan. After a few plays I now have to give it credit for being a very good game even in comparison to modern CDGs. Can be a little swingy in the last turn(s).

Preliminary rating after one game (short version). Similar to Agricola in many regards and while some have made valid comments on the differences between the two, for me I see it primarily as a matter of taste: do I prefer the port or the peasant setting? Not sure at this point.

First play merely to "get" the game. Rules seem very interesting and enforcing tough decisions. No easy movement around the board for one's units. Good implementation of heroes.

A great game that adds some very interesting aspects to the usual "great powers wage war in Europe" theme.

A much better game than I initially thought. Nice asymmetry and lots of theme but unfortunately a lack of real long-term strategy. Combat/travel/live points truly innovative.

A fast-paced area control game. When I don't have the time to get Starcraft or Runewars on the table this one might serve as a filler. It offers, however, fun by itself and has some tactical depth.

An interesting expansion that adds to the game on all levels. The different strategies now feel somewhat more balanced and the game rounds more flexible. The new homeworlds do not win a prize for me, though.

Overpriced but a nice addition to the game. Like the new homeworlds.

A fun game if played with the right bunch of people. Had fun the other night with 6 players where one player would manage the CD, the threats and act as a sort of game master. Since each game lasts just about 30 minutes everyone had a great time.
Caveat: it is not the type of game you will want to play with die-hard strategists. Just embrace the chaos and have two or three beers with it!

Still not sure about my rating after 3 games. I like the idea and the mechanics A LOT. Game length in anything but a 2-player game can be pretty bad, though, and the early turns lack direct confrontation and interaction. At this point it is probably a 7.5 or maybe an 8 for me.

Well worth downloading and offering as an alternative to Raynor and Mensk.

Hard to say whether I like this one more than Sword of Rome. Some of the rules can be missed because they are different from SoR or Hannibal so check the rules and FAQ before playing!

Played only very few games so far but the mechanisms seem very well developed and the theme is still visible under the somewhat abstract surface. Excellent design effort.

THE big game of galactic conquest. The gaming experience is VERY much dependent on the group you play with. Players who tend to ignore the logic of a game and instead ally with their best mate in order to then start bashing their other opponents can ruin the fun quite a bit. Games can last up to 9 hours but you'll usually know within the first 120 minutes whether you will enjoy the session or not.

A generally very useful expansion of the game but I notice over and over again that TI3 can never guarantee to deliver. Much depends on external factors to make this game an awesome experience. The few time where this happens, however, are games to remember. I strongly suggest to play with a preset map, the aggressive goals and all goals uncovered from the beginning.
