Twilight Imperium is one of the best games I have ever played.
Scott Potter
It's pretty intense on rules, takes a lot of endurance to finish a game, and involves a lot of long term strategy.
D. Nguyen
What you'll come to find is that you'll want to play this game every few months.

Twilight Imperium is one of the best games I have ever played. As a student at college, my friends and have 1-2 board game nights per week; with Twilight Imperium and Acquire being the most played games. I would highly recommend this game, though the learning curve is rather steep (an hour at to learn the rules) and the game takes a long time to play (4+ hours). If you are looking for a conquest game like RISK, stop reading now. Twilight Imperium is based on maneuvering, preparation, and diplomacy with few significant battles in the game.

The game is played to victory 10 points and unlike most war games, conquest is not the only means of victory. Points are acquired through capturing planets but also "researching" technology, and political decisions. The method of determining turn order is also quite original. Each player chooses a card (1-8) which in addition to being the order in which the players play, gives each player a special ability for that round. To further add interest each card has a secondary ability which all the other players can use when the player owning the card uses it. As a result not only are broad discussion (like conquest or technology) important but every turn can be critical as the players ability to ace often depends directly on when and how the other players act. This may seem as if it would slow the game, but a restriction on how many turns a player can take per round keeps the game moving nicely but keeps strategy extremely important through out.

This is not to say I don't have a few complaints about the game. The first couple of times we played we noticed some imbalances which led to certain having a definite advantage and the game always trending in the same way. There are 3 ways to get these points.

Let begin with this: THIS GAME IS AMAZING!

It is phenomenal in every way. It balances really well and the rules, as copious as they are, are well thought out and intuitive. You can learn them with ease but it will take some time to get through them all. The game is also really fun and the theme is spectacular. The gameplay is so deep that it feels so much more sophisticated than any board game I've ever played. The biggest problem I have with the game is that it never leaves my shelf. The game is great and I recommend it for anyone with some other roommates that have similar schedules but the problem with the game is the length of time it takes to play.The product description says about 3 hours but that is, in my experience, way underestimated.Of the five games I have played, it usually took about 7 or 8 hours, the fastest game was 5 hours. That big chunk of time is just too much especially for 4 or 5 people to all be in the same place at the same time. If that is not a problem then I say you should buy it, but for 70 bucks, the one game that you might play just isn't worth it.

Twilight Imperium is a space conquest board game with many different ways to win and numerous things that make it new and different every time you play.

You can win one of any three ways in TI. You can win by conquering all of your opponents(much like Risk), by accumulating points(much like Settlers of Catan), or by some random game events that come up in cards that are drawn occasionally.

This game has 10 races that you randomly choose from at the beginning of each game. The "universe" is made up of 30-40 some odd hex tiles that are randomly placed to create a unique and changing universe every time.

The game supports 3-6 players, each having their own unique color, counters, 60+ unit pieces, markers, tokens, etc. All of the pieces are made of a very thick cardboard stock and are quite sturdy. They seemed to be covered in a canvas type material making them moderately water resistant. The actual unit pieces are a medium hardness molded plastic making them tough as well as being well detailed. A typical game takes 3-4 hours. The learning curve is moderate to high and for that reason it is recommend for ages 14+, the numerous small pieces DO represent a choking hazard and the game is not recommended for small children up to age 3.

All in all, this game is AMAZING. It feels like an epic adventure every time! I haven't been this happy about a purchase in ages, so go out and give Twilight Imperium a try, you'll be glad you did.

My history as a gamer is a little different from most. I started playing Axis & Allies when I was young and before I played Risk. For the rest of my life, up until now, I have been happy to play Axis & Allies and all of its successive manifestations. I have always introduced new friends to it through all stages of my life. Then I played this thing and realized that in gaming terms I have been rubbing two sticks together while everyone else had blow torches. The current group of friends that I have introduced to Axis & Allies all concur and will play this every session if I bring it up.
The depth this game provides is unprecedented. The mechanics are in step with any game today and as far as I can tell are not considered outdated. In fact TI may be responsible for a new trend which combines euro games with Ameritrash. If you like board games and are looking for more meat, this game is for you.
The other reviews are correct, there is a learning curve and its worth every second you spend. The game is long, indeed its too long. I really don't care, an unfinished game of TI is better than any complete A&A session.
This is the boardgame version of Masters of Orion, but even better than that.
The player interaction is great. The objectives force you to be careful about alliances. The politics along with strategy cards give the players many ways to win the game. You can play with the same race and have to win a different way each time.
If you are in your teens and early twenties with a lot of time on your hands, then I envy you. You are about to really have a good time. If you are older with family to take care of, then you will have to lose sleep on occasion to make the time to play this game, and it will be worth it.
