It's going to be at a price point I'll find difficult to justify considering the amount I have spent on the first edition...

If it means updated gameplay, minis, and some streamlining, it works for me.

I wonder what the "improvements" are over the original edition... and whether they can be applied on the first edition...

Aren't the minis just the same as ship pack one? Which I already have. The updated gameplay etc. may be easy to incorporate into first edition.

I love Eclipse and wildly speculate that a copy of the second edition won't prove necessary for my continued loving of Eclipse. If anything, I'd hope that anything "new" (cube trays, etc) would be compatible with the existing edition and available for separate purchase, but great 3rd-party solutions already exist for most of the upgrades.

I'm happy that the 2nd edition will exist, and I think it is great that the game will find its way onto more shelves (I just don't expect I will need one). I really hope and further speculate that this marks Eclipse's return to the top of all things Hotness.

I also speculate we'll see some new threads on the value of an early Improved Hull and maybe a Missle Envy thread or two. Good times.

I got in on the Eclipse party very late.

First saw it at my FLGS in 2013. Bought it in 2014 when it was gathering cobwebs on the top shelf (great discount feature!). Put it on the top shelf of my own closet where it gathered cobwebs for years.

Finally played it last summer and it was (of course) a great hit with my little group!

Bought the ship pack -- but then -- rumors of "upgrade" -- so I closed my wallet.

Now I'm just waiting to see what happens next.

I would note that Vlaada Chvatil did an "upgrade" of Through the Ages that was absolutely wonderful. Perfect. But it did force me to sell my game and buy that new version. No regrets. But just saying.

An upgrade kit was not possible for Through the Ages. Will it be possible for Eclipse?

Wait and see, I guess.

I suspect it will mean MORE minis, more Ship packs, more mini expansions, more promos/exclusive items...

Kickstarter = milk the cow

The game isn’t likely to be shipped out to backers until the end of the year - there’s no way I couldn’t have Eclipse in my life for that long...

Kickstarter? Shipped to backers? Where was it said this would be Kickstarter based? Some post on Facebook? Got a link to share?

Looking at Kollosal Games latest KS project, Western Legends, it will have high shipping cost to my country.
