Eclipse: Second Dawn is on Kickstarter now

Eclipse (Or Eclipse: New Dawn For The Galaxy) is a great game that is my choice of massive 4X game. Released in 2011, many players called it ‘Twilight Imperium lite’ but that is both true and unfair. Currently on Kickstarter, Eclipse: Second Dawn is the streamlined and improved second edition, and it looks amazing.

One Last Job is up on Kickstarter

In honour of the ‘Hiest’ Blatherings last week, news on a new Kickstarter that looks great. While Android: Netrunner is coming to a close, the daunting task of teaching new players is real and one of the reasons I stopped playing.
