Just got my copy of Eclipse today, can't wait to play it. The thing that immediately struck me out of the box is how nice all the pieces are. The hex map tiles are larger than I expected at 3 and a half inches across, even the box feels like thicker cardboard than I am used to for a game box. And including 10 empty plastic and 2 cloth bags for the pieces was a fantastic touch more companies should do.

I agree. Many people complain about the ships, but I like them very much. They're made from good hard plastic and their simple design is perfect for Eclipse's elegant style.

And wooden pieces are always nice.

Got everything sorted out, Out of 900+ pieces, I was missing one blue interceptor.

I too like the ships, they look generic sure, but they aren't flimsy and falling apart like some of the more detailed but overall cheaper feeling stuff I see in other games I own like Chaos in the Old World and Runewars.

The overall design and quality is really good. I don't like the ships, but that's my bad... What I really complain about is, that although the space station is a ship, it did not get an appropriate plastic piece.

True, but on the other hand it's a piece that cannot move, like the monoliths and orbitals. So being a cardboard token works from a gameplay angle.

Plus the box is deep enough to comfortably hold a Plano box or two.
