We've had some fun with this game, although lady luck has not been kind to all players. Machenema attacked ancients in Magellan's Hex 1 space but got defeated (just barely, very bad luck with dice) by Magellan's single dreadnought. Orion and Machenema battled over the Hive system between them with white barely coming out on top (both had to roll 6's LOL). Hydran has just been ... well, slowly gaining momentum. Most unfortunate is the Rho Indi has been plagued by everyone but him finding the the ancients and had to foray into Hydran and (formerly) Magellan territory to fight any. Orion has been most hurt by not having required systems and advanced mining having gone as soon as it came up (although one may see other problems with his hex draws). Nobody has really been able to advance as fast as they would like, keeping it a somewhat even game (although start of round 7 is starting to look a little off balanced.

Best part was when Rho Indi decided not to attack a Hydran system because he had resources for Starbases... 3 rounds later the Hydran researched Starbases whistle

Had to call it a night and save for later as 3 different time zones are playing together!

See post two for an image of game at end of round 6.

Not quite sure the image does our current state of game justice, but as you see, we have quite the busy board right now with 5 players on deck. Aside from the Flux Missiles, Plasma cannons are all that people have for upgraded weapons at the moment. Quite far behind many other games I've played by round 7, but still fairly even (most of the players are still in the running). It's very fascinating how good the Ion Turret can be at times!

Looks like it is an online game on Vassal.

With another exciting round or two under our belt, Magellan have managed conquer the galactic center, the Hydran Progress has been gutted and left as a former shell of their old self, and the Machenema have silently sat in their galaxy, leaving their intentions unknown...

The Pirates have moved in for more kills with massive shields protecting their fleet, while the Orion have gone up and down, struggling to regain the military dominance their race was so proud of.

Many battles were fought and many races just don't have the treasury to reap the benefits of the war tearing up the galaxy.... The final round ensues, who will be the victor???

I can't seem to find an Eclipse module for Vassal that includes Rise of the Ancients. Could you tell me where to look please?
