I know this is an old game but I just watched the vid review from Dice Tower and one of them said this is what Eclipse wishes it was. My question is what does Eclipse wish it was? If the answer is a war game then maybe this is the game I'm looking for. I want a good combat game with several wars that doesn't take 1/2 the day to play. I love Eclipse, but I need more fighting. Is this the game I'm looking for? If not what is the game I'm looking for? I'm ok changing genres too, I love space theme but I'm open. I'd like to find something in the 60-90 min range (3-6 ppl)

Could take a look at this game, but it may be longer than you like.

Not many copies out there, so before I drop a hundred dollars I'd like a bit more info on it.

Whether this is the game you want or not, it's out of print and outrageously priced, but see it's heavily-redesigned soon-to-release successor Empires of the Void II.

Take a look at Exodus: Proxima Centauri. Much more readily available for purchase and it has 2 expansions (one available now and one on the way). Here's a link to the Miami Dice review.

Here's a link to a video series with sample play and more LINK if that helps you decide.

Give Nexus Ops a try. It's much shorter and has a similar combat system as this game.
Lots and lots of fighting.
I do love Empires though. I'm not turning you away from it.
