Well we've not played eclipse for a while...

Saturday, then?

Anyone else? I'm happy to host.

Shall we say 1pm? Any time is fine for me, though.

Anyone else for some space conquest?

The car rescue people are sending someone over to make my car better. All being well, should be able to make it over for 1:30. Anyone else for Eclipse?

Car rescue people just rang back and they may take a bit longer to get to me.

After a delayed start we played almost a full game (8 instead of 9 rounds). For most of it Sam and I were pretty much resigned to Jamie running away with it after his good start but it turned out to be a pretty tight finish and Sam was the surprise(d) winner. 29 to me, 30 to Jamie, 35 to Sam.

A mistake down to me miscalculating a movement means that the results should actually read Tom29, Jamie32, Sam33 which also better reflects how close it was. Jamie could probably have had a better last round and won. If tom hadn't decided, half way through, to build some interceptors on the outer arse-rim of the galaxy, he might have taken it. And if I didn't get the Magellan bonus for discovery tiles, I would have come last.

All in all, fun was had and the top moment was Jamie not noticing a wee research by Tom meaning that rather than Jamie's missile boats waltzing in, firing and waltzing out again, they waltzed in, fired and got held in Tom's tractor beam while he slowly pummelled them to death with his ion cannons. Bloody brilliant.
