To cut a long story short, two thumbs up!!!!
|Mike explaining the rules (the tech tree in this case)|
|The start. I was red (specialising in trading), inbetween Martha (specialising in technology) and David (specialising in politics. I thought it would be a nice quiet corner of the world ...|
|I started exploring, and almost immediately my fleet hit a supernova and was destroyed :(|
|I was hemmed in by the supernova, asteroids, and a gravity rift. I had to move tovards David.|
|Lots of people playing various games|
David destroyed my new fleet. While everyone else expanded, I was stuck :(. But the game was so much fun!
