Man I can't wait for this gme to come out. The first 2 editions were great sci-fi political/war games, the 3rd edition looks to be even better. It has stream-lined rules, better bits and all the extras from all the expansions. It has a hefty price tag of $80 but it looks to be worth it.

Man I can't wait.

Why don't you stop being a jerk in other people's journal.

Have you considered how much you are going to have to sell yourself for on Ebay to afford this game?

What is in this game that makes it so expensive? Is it made with real Aliens?

Yeah but you won't have to pay $80 so it's more like $52. When you're buying it, you're supposed to brag about how you found it for only $52. This can continue until maybe 2 weeks after you buy it (though at this point the verbage changes to 'I bought an $80 game for $52, I rock!'.

At some point (basically when it becomes annoying) you roll back and call it an $80 game.

It's all in how you show it.

Big meanie, I sent your eBay link to like 100 people

Me. Absolutely. Probably the game I am waiting most eagerly right now.

Hopefully it won't cost too much even here in Europe. I'm still shocked about the 90 ? pricetag on HeroScape. Luckily FFG seems to have an efficient distribution system on this side of the Atlantic as well, so it'll probably be quite affordable. Well, as affordable as a game with 80$ price can be

Yeah... I'm getting pumped for it -- but I'm also p*ssed that I purchased the 2nd edition less than a year ago. What gives!?

Oh yeah!
Yes this is my most anticipated game for me this year. I was really hoping that it was going to be ready by Christmas, but alas, I have to wait until January.
I will probably sell my near mint copy of TI 2.

1st & 3rd will be totally different and that's cool with me.
I have the 1st edition (which I love) but from what I've heard, the 3rd edition will play drastically different than either the 1st or 2nd and that's great by me. I'm going to keep both editions and play whichever one I'm in the mood for.

Although 2nd edition did have some improvements that shortened the game overall, I still enjoy playing 1st edition more as it feels more "epic" to me. Whether it's the longer turns (making a longer game overall) or different tech system (planets make certain tech less expensive & tech tree) that makes the game feeel more like a computer game, I really like the slow build-up of empires that seemed to occur in a more pronounced way in the 1st edition.

3rd edition will be like a remake of a favorite movie, but with the same director and an up to date script.

I would be willing to bet, the bits for the third edition will work perfectly for the 2nd and 1st edition.
