Just telling the BGG community (and kind of bragging) that I got the only copy of Eclipse at my FLGS. I reserved it a long time ago and they called me yesterday. The lady there said the distributor got a bunch of copies that were damaged and not playable and only one copy came in and I got it.

I havent opened it yet. I will do that tomorrow.

You lucky little...

Just joking. Enjoy the game, and have Merry Christmas while leading your empire to victory.

By chance, was that FLGS Viking Hobby?

Just bought a copy here in NYC - they had a handful of copies ordered eons ago that FINALLY came in. I couldn't resist! Be warned: the booklet is typo ridden. There is an FAQ you should consult before panicking that you did not get enough of the right components!

I played my first game tonight, and, I must say, the design is impressive, the components (though they are many) are beautiful, and the play is very intuitive (after a preliminary limp through game). Kudos and congrats and getting a copy!

Yes. I reserved it over 6 months ago when it was still a kickstarter. I've been wanting this game since I saw the eclipse picture on the original box. They jokingly told me to put it on Ebay and sell it for large amounts of money. No way, It's mine, MINE (or I'll help you not)

Most of the distributors, I understand will be getting another shipment in April. I hope everyone who wants one, gets one. I'm happy Christmas arrived early. I couldn't wait I HAD TO open it tonight. Looks Awesome!!

My FLGS which usually does not come through on any games that I actually want (at least not in a timely manner) actually did have Eclipse fortunately... I got the only copy and we just played for the first time tonight

I was told by somebody it started out as one. My mistake.

Is it possible you are getting it confused with Empires of the Void, another space-themed game? Although I don't think that one was on Kickstarter yet 6 months ago.

Somebody told me that it started on the kickstarter program.blush I though it was in the kickstarter. I know I just told my FLGS to save me a copy when they got one in. The box at the time was black and had a eclipse picture on it.( I'm guessing it was maybe 6 months ago).
Can't wait to play it this weekend when I'll be off for Christmas, I love space themed games. I'll have to check out that game you just mentioned too. Thanks Scott.

For what it's worth, it's still being produced, and the Kickstarter is over, but it should be in stores in a few months, I understand. And it should be a reasonably different game experience from Eclipse, so that it's not like having the same game in different forms.

I just received my copy, ordered from CoolStuffInc a few weeks ago. Awesome service from them, as usual. Can't wait to get home and check it out (and then rewrap to put under the tree!), and to line up a game next week.
