Good Morning,

My friends and I really enjoy playing Eclipse. It' a great space exploration and economy game. However, fights are usually very rare during our games. Usually, we fight some ancient ships and just at the end each other. Looking at my collection, I figured that I actually don't own any proper (space) wargame and decided that this should be changed :-)

The game should be playable with 2 players but also with three. My suggestions so far are:
+ Forbidden Stars
+ Star Wars Rebellion
+ Twilight Imperium (not sure about that, since I already own Eclipse)

Ideally, the game includes lots of miniatures and a great theme. I think Forbidden Stars ticks all the boxes and it is still available for a good price here in Germany.

Do you have any other suggestions?

PS: I tried to include Geek Link's, but the popup dialog didn't work today.

I had a look at it a while ago, since I was interested in Space Empires 4x. However, there are no miniatures in the game. I want something really different to the games I already own.

I would recommend Fleet Commander: Genesis but as I don't have it yet (waiting on the KS) I'm not sure if it plays 3 well. It says 2-4 but from the nature of it it seems that it may be more team play so 2 or 4. I could be wrong though.

Aside from that I would probably go w/ Forbidden Stars

Someone recommended to me (OOP) Buck Rogers: Battle for the 25th Century Game for a "dudes on a map" in space. I liked its unique mechanics for space vs. planetary combat.

You would sacrifice play for bits of colored plastic?
