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!

Needs more game time!
mbmbmbmbmb
#10

Number of Plays:
3

Why it is on the list: A truly epic gaming experience unmatched in scope to anything else that appears on this list. The action selection of the order cards is fantastic and works so well in this game. The races, ships, and tactics are all very well done and varied. But the best thing about this game is just how epic it feels. This feels like a novel, or at least the over-branching story that you would typically find in some sort of space opera novel.

Playability: Almost impossible. This game is practically plagued by the rumors of it having a twelve hour play time, but that is not very accurate. Our longest game was an eight player game that featured rules explanation and two meal breaks and still barely hit eleven hours. Either way, just scheduling this is a nightmare. Minimum of eight hours(with breaks) and six people(with five I would play something else) I just don’t have the opportunity to realistically get this out. Everyone that has played this game with us has walked away fascinated. My wife constantly wants to play. If i can get back into the habit of going to conventions, this will be something I look forward to scheduling.

System Mastery:
There is certainly a system in play here, but this seems more like a social puzzle than a gaming one. Plenty of variety with all of the races and map set ups that each game is going to feel very unique.

Social Interaction:
Plenty, but sometimes players can be very spread out in an eight player game and won’t interact at all.

What I don’t like:
I have seen players get completely shut out early in the game and either do nothing, or just leave. When you spend so much time scheduling and planning to play this and a player can feel that pointless in the overall arc of the game it can be very depressing.

Rank: 7.5


Items owned:
- Twilight Imperium (Third Edition), purchased from Dragon, Novi Sad.
- Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shattered Empire, purchased from Dragon, Novi Sad.
- Twilight Imperium (Third Edition): Shards of the Throne, co-owned with my gaming group in Novi Sad.

Description: Extremely complex, Ameritrash, heavy, epic, sci-fi, space, 4X game with variable player powers, modular board with hexagonal tiles, dice combat and space ship miniatures.
Weight: Heavy. Very heavy.
Number of players: 3 to 8 with expansion. Best with 6.
Designer: Christian T. Petersen.
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games.

Impression: Ironically, this is my first non traditional board game. I fell in love the first time I saw it and played it on the floor of our student mansion back in 2006. It is also the game that I spend most time playing, probably more than other games combined. There is LOT in this game. In combines space combat, planetary invasion, warfare, diplomacy, negotiation, politics and voting, trade, espionage, sabotage, technology, logistic, production, exploration, expansion and civilization building in one game. True meaning of a 4X game. And it has 10 (17 with expansions) conceptually different races with unique abilities which direct the strategy for the game. There is a mechanism that drives the game borrowed, as I later found out, from Puerto Rico or Race for the Galaxy, where each player, in order of initiative, selects one strategy tile granting him the primary ability of that tile when activated, and in the same time, granting the secondary ability to all other players. I might write down 3 pages of every bit of this game. It is truly epic.
However it requires at least 8 hours in one sitting, and that is if everybody knows the rules. Back in the days I was fully committed to that. Now I would be ready to spend that much time for one game maybe once a year. It's exhausting. The fact that rules are so complicated and even incomplete and full of misbalance made us introduce so many house rules it is no longer the same game Christian T. Petersen imagined. And the components, especially strategy tiles and space hex tiles, wore out beyond recognition. My original game group is still playing it on monthly base and a friend of mine restored all the hex tiles so they look gorgeous now.

Likes: Various conceptually different races with unique powers. Modular board with hexagonal tiles. Various technologies and tech tree. Huge amount of politic agendas and laws that change the rules of the game. Space ship miniatures of few different classes. Secret objectives.

Dislikes: Exhausting and epic playing time. Overly complex rules full of holes and contradictions. Huge amount of Action cards ranging from completely useless to broken. Early player elimination. King making. Lack of mechanisms that discourage turtling. General misbalance of races powers, planets, objectives and technologies. Unfair randomness of dice combat. Huge playing surface required.

Current status: Permanently owned.

It's been very dry for thrifting in Springfield lately. I'm still diligently stopping at every thrift store I can during my work day of driving elderly people around in a wheelchair van. There's even a Savers right along the route I usually take to go home, so I stop there almost every day. But partly because I've been more picky lately, I have found very little worth buying this year.

So today I found a nice set of mini poker chips in amongst the lousy games and puzzles. It was still in its box, with a nice heavy metal carrying case. Branded as 'World Series of Poker' Mini Travel Poker Set, by Excalibur Electronics. Chips and card still in shrink. A bit more than I would like to have spent but for $8 I decided to splurge on it.

I then made my usual pass by the furniture and kids toys (found a copy of Source of the Nile hidden over there once) and then past the collectibles counter on my way to the cash register. I've never seen ANY games at this store's collectibles area, so imagine my surprise to spot this beauty way up on the top shelf!

I got a staff member to come by and pull it down for inspection, expecting it to be priced at $70 pr something like that. When I saw the $20 tag, my heart sped up and I said 'if it looks like it is close to complete I'll buy it. Opened it up and found a total chaotic mess of bit in the bottom. The tiles were bagged and I could see some of the triangular chits were still stuck together. Rules were present and there was a ton of stuff, so I figured it was definitely worth the twenty.

Got it home and after counting everything for about an hour I verified it was nearly complete, just missing the four d10s. I soon replaced them a nice matching set from my dice jar and it's good to go.

Box lid has a split corner and the bottom has a nearly torn corner, and there's a bit of shelf wear, but otherwise in great shape.

I'm really thrilled to have found something so cool, but I'm torn. Several of my friends already own it and I have been reducing my collection quite a bit lately. I guess I'll hold onto it until the next no-ship auction I can put it in.
