I've found a shop that sells this for 50, and remember positive mutterings about it on here.

Can anyone tell me more? Number of players it works best with, playing time, ease to pick up, what you actually do and why etc

Ta all

It's a great game. Nuf said.

Works well for 2, 3, 4, or 6 players.

Each player basically plays a race-- exploring the areas around their small starting empires. There is a research track for various areas of technology.

It's a game of exploration, politics, and war. The warfare aspects are heavily abstracted.

Folks have likened it to a cross between Axis and Allies and Diplomacy in Space, with l4z3rz! From what I've witnessed, the diplomacy works best with the max number of players....

I have had a couple of games, and must say it's a pretty neat boardgame.

Good multiplayer game, doesn't drag on forever, etc.

If you're a fan of the Master of Orion II computer game, you'll instantly be into it. :)
