The box is in very rough shape. It was peeling on the corners and looks like it has been dropped a few times. Some splitting as well.

But the components inside as in very good condition. Only played about three times. Just the box is in bad shape. Not for a collector.

Space! Combat! Exploration! Economy! Trade! Politics! Technology! Variable win conditions! Secret objectives! Dice! Epic thematic universe!

This was the first game I found that "had it all". Amazing experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a bit fiddly, and a little long, when you consider that someone could be out of the game early. However I revelled in the grand experience, which of course was made even better by playing with great friends. It has had many memorable experiences.

I haven't been able to play for a while, but I will always have fond memories. Maybe I can get it back out again soon. None of the other space games have delivered the same experience, but there have been some good ones along the way. Civ games also fill a similar niche.

Mainly, in a thematic game like this, it's the experience that remains in memory, after the pieces have been put away. Perhaps it's the RPG player in me that romanticizes the grand epic of a session. I've moved toward economic euros lately, which can span the same number of hours, so things haven't changed that much, but they don't give the same sense of adventure.

The adventure isn't the only reason I play board games, but it is a powerful one.

This game doesn't start out Yatzi, but once you add both expansions Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shattered Empire and Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shards of the Throne, it becomes EXACTLY like Yatzi in every way.

It's interesting to see a game turn from a space epic into Yatzi as the complexity increases.

This is one trashy game that I would really like to try - at some point. Probably not gonna happen for a while. I do really enjoy Eclipse and this is supposedly much more epic.

The Holy Grail

In every collection you will always have a game (or 20) that you're desperate to get to the table, but need just the right group, player count or even free time to make it work. But when you do, the result promises to be unforgettable and utterly fantastic. These are games that you know are great fun, but are – for one reason or another – very difficult to get to the table.

If you ask me what 4X has the best depth:length ratio, I'll answer TI:3. While definitely long, its length can be one hour per player if once all are familiar with it. There are both longer and shorter games, true, and while I do enjoy those too, I always end up comparing them with this one. Shorter games usually fall behind in at least a couple departments, while longer games are almost impossible to organize.

TI:3 features the expected 4 X's: expand, explore, exploit and exterminate. But what makes it great is that it also has diplomacy and trade in spades. All departments have a very nice compromise in between depth and fiddliness. Deep enough to be both thematic and substantial without turning to be nor unwieldy nor unintuitive.

The game also features several core mechanisms which resemble those from euro games. In particular, the drafting of the strategy cards, as well as the action draught imposed by the command counters, are two intuitive and streamlined mechanisms which add a lot of depth to the game.

Sadly, its main flaw relies in one of its main pillars: the strategy cards. In a very specific strategy card, now that we are at it: the Imperial card, which grants two victory points, no questions asked. This makes the drafting more mechanical, as two cards will always be picked whenever possible: the imperial, for the victory points, and the initiative, which determines who will pick strategy cards first on the next turn. This provokes the Imperial card keeps rotating throughout the whole game, which has the side effect of granting a considerable advantage the starting player, as well as to those seated to his left. Thankfully, the first expansion, Shattered Empire, fixes this by introducing alternative strategy cards.

So, is TI:3 good? Provided you can schedule day long sessions, yes, it's good. And if you do own the expansion and address the strategy card issue, it's bloody excellent!
