Description

Fairly complex game involving colonizing other planets and fighting on planets and in space. Also has a role-playing element (you have a bunch of characters to run your empire).

Opinions:

Having been a long time FBI customer and a Mobius player, I felt that the review for that game was rather unjustified. The game is certainly somewhat more complex than, say Starweb, but considerably simpler that Empyrean Challenge (to stay in the same genre), very well run (FBI's customer service is absolutely the best, their error rate extremely low and their turnaround quite regular) and I would recommend the game heartily. It is interesting for its introduction of some role playing into what is a primarily strategic game. Try it! - Henri_Hayim_Farhi@cup.portal.com

Good service, but be prepared to spend a lot of money and a lot of time number crunching. Not bad, but not great either. - minnotte@rice.edu (Mike Minnotte)
