Summary

Interesting Game

The Good

Never played the board game, but found the concept facinating.

I play against the computer (me against 7 other AI opponents). The game has a random flavor to it, but play it enough times and the strategy starts to show.

Love to try it modem some time, but no one owns the darn game! (BTW, bought a second copy from Chips and Bits for under $10.)

The Bad

The game is a bit dry, and there are some drawbacks to the interface, such as not being able to view the map easily when choosing your empires.

The Bottom Line

Diplomacy meets Civilization.
