So I've been looking for a 2 player variant to this game and saw mention of one using the Shattered Empire expansion I think? Anyway, all the mentions of the variant refer to a TI wiki that is no longer operating. I can't find the variant info anywhere and was hoping someone had access to it or could provide me with a valid link somewhere where I could check it out. Thanks for any help.

Thanks but that's not at all what I'm asking for. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I said I looked through the posts and saw mention of a specific 2 player variant that uses Shattered Empire and was initially posted on the T3 wiki. The wiki is no longer in existence and I would like to find out if anyone has any info on that variant or links to elsewhere where that variant might be. In one thread someone mentioned the variant being available on the FFS forum, but I did not see it when I looked.

I apologize if I seemed to be asking for any two player variant, but that is not at all what I was asking. I'm more than capable of scanning the file section myself but I'm not looking for just any random 2 player variant. The one I'm referring to was supposedly play tested quite a bit and seems to be very fleshed out.

Simple 2 player variant I've found works:
-Use a 2 Ring Galaxy, replace Mecatol Rex with an Asteroid Field.
-Take out all the Objectives and especially Secret Objectives that require Mecatol Rex or more than one opponent.
-Each player chooses 3 Strategy Cards, use worst Initiative.
-When voting, roll D10 votes for and D10 votes against.
-Use Trade 3. Alternatively, trade with yourself.

Edit: apparently not what you're after, but hey look, anecdotes! It's been fun the handful of times I've played it. Scratches the itch, but it's not really TI3. That's simply not possible without 3+ players because the interaction is so much of the game.

I get the feeling that people are just looking at the topic title and responding without reading what I posted. Again, while I appreciate you're insight, I'm looking for a specific variant. I think it is actually pretty clear in my postings.

Maybe because the topic tile isn't the best suitable.
Anyway, my apologies, because I can't help you after reading your second post...

I'm talking about the mod that Ter Ter refers to in your second link. The Shattered Ascension 2 player mod (though I'm assuming he made a mistake since there is no Shattered Ascension expansion that I know of). I've seen it referred to in a few other threads as well and some people have even linked to it on the TI3 wiki but that wiki no longer exists.

I didn't come across your first link but I'm not sure that's referring to the same thing either. That's the thing though, I can't find enough cohesive info in any one place which is why I turned here. All I can gather is that it was a very fully play tested mod for TI3 that makes use of the Shattered Empire expansion and is a 2 player variant.

Shattered Ascension is a popular unofficial variant. You can find it here: http://www.simonkamber.dk/ti3/viewforum.php?f=6

Ah I see. Thanks for that. I'll have to look through that forum and see if I find anything else. Thanks.

Always preferable to an unpopular official variant.
