Yours — is the superior intellect.
Let’s beam up Star Trek: Ascendancy by Gale Force Nine and see what materialises.
I’ve always been more Star Trek than Star Wars, but despite my interest in the milieu I held off on buying Gale Force Nine’s big 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) game for quite a while. But it eventually popped up in my inbox at a reasonable price, and I couldn’t resist. Is it a good game? I’m dying to find out, because this is the kind of game that people seem to love and some people love to hate. Everyone does agree however, that it’s long and there’s a lot of down time.
But long, involving games can be a lot of fun (let’s face it, War of the Ring is my all-time favourite), so despite the down time, I’m hoping this one is immersive and interesting enough to really bring the Star Trek universe to life. Before I discover that however, let’s discover the contents of said box together. Boldly go!
Let me know if you’ve played the game and your experiences with it. Of course, an excellent rules summary always helps, and the EOG one is almost done and coming to this website very soon!
