|Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition | Published 02 May 2011||Rating||30 votes|
Centuries of war, followed by further centuries of xenophobic isolation, have left the once powerful empire little more than a distant memory. But even as the great races struggle to reclaim some semblance of their former glory, ambition grows unchecked in their hearts. Some are guided by a lust for power, others by a benevolent desire for peace. Ancient civilizations harbor ancient grudges, while newcomers to the galaxy work to further their own inscrutable agendas. But no matter their reasons, the horrors of the Twilight Wars have not deterred the great races from their prize; it has only delayed them.

Twilight Imperium is a board game of galactic politics, trade, and warfare. 3-6 players each control an acclaimed civilization, vying for galactic supremacy through any means necessary. Each civilization provides an entirely different experience with their own individual abilities and play styles. Are you ready for another Age of Twilight?
I love some of the new ideas, even if I think the new Political and Trade SCs fall short. Very excited for the new races as well.as the Techs, systems, and flagships.
Is Political II a misprint?
oh wow, nice *reading...*
