Top 10 Space Empire Games
Below is my Top 10 list of games covering the establishing of an empire in space. These are games that meet all of the following criteria: (1) focuses on building an empire in space; (2) strong emphasis on most, if not all, of the 4X elements (i.e, eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate); (3) compelling "theme" (not too abstract); and (4) fun to play. That said this is a list of the BEST! As always, your mileage may vary and some entries may be "controversial." As such, please feel free to comment, debate, or just express your own point of view. Feel free to this list (to draw attention and more comments) or any pleasing, interesting or thought provoking entries. If I missed one that you feel is essential or I am "insane for not listing" (trust me, it has been said before), then by all means let the comments fly . . . just be civil. FYI - I am a sucker for comments and discussion and usually most if not all of them.
I find that these lists sometimes are helpful for others seeking similar games and the more rich the discussion for more useful the list.

As always, thanks for reading and participating!
