Thread: Galactic Empires:: General:: Looking to move my old sealed product.

Board Game Geek - Articles - Sun, 03/09/2014 - 21:40

by stevecorby

Hey folks, I have some old sealed Galactic Empires product, and it really deserves to find a new home after all these years. The marketplace will only let me list 1 item at a time for a specific game or I'd list them that way. If you are interested, send me a PM and if we make a deal, I'll run it through the marketplace so BGG gets it's cut.

Shipping on each box is $12.50, US shipping only. I can ship 2 boxes for the same price. Here is what I have:

Limited German edition with the cool gold borders - $60.00
New Empires - $45.00
Piracy - $100.00 - 80 packs in a box
Galactic Invaders - $125.00 - 96 packs in a box
Advanced Technologies - $125.00 - smallest print run of any of the expansions

I have to dig around, I might have some starter decks. If so I'll add a post to this thread.

I have the most success starting with, "The object of this game is...." "Here's how to ...." "The game ends when..."

My wife, who is generally a non-gamer, will only learn games this way. She doesn't like hypotheticals during the explanation. In other words she doesn't like, "if this happens during the game, then this will happen" statements.

Since I started teaching games her way, I have had a lot more success with fun and understanding.

Can I still get the promos if I order from the store now (with the product released). I wasn't sure if this was a pre-order bonus OR just a buy from us direct type bonus.
Thanks!

I'd try to argue this with you Erik, but my copy has sat I played for two years now. I really liked the game back in the day, though.

The middle has spots for unused age cards. Just below that is the dicard area. To the left and right are sections to place coins, victory tokens, and debt tokens. Its to be placed in the center of the table and used as a central supply point for all players.


Oh, I mistook the bottom center area as a spot for the wonder board. I got confused. Guess I got excited for nothing. I really want a play mat for use during the game as the table can become quite a mess.

As has been alluded to, groupthink should be recognized and avoided (or exploited).

Also, your scores are running 80-100 points below what I've been seeing, so I'd suppose there's some efficiency gains to be made somewhere...

I would call this one a classic. It has been around for a long time, now, and has many avid fans. There are games like it, but none that match it's breadth and scope and narrative. I would, however, suggest that if you intend to *play* the game, that you insure you have a group of players - preferably 6. You will be a lucky person to find 6 players willing to play a game on the Protestant Reformation era in Europe's history.

I would say, play it first and see how you like it. The game has a lot of moving parts, and really isn't a game that should be played with anything less than 3 players, IMHO. I have only played it with a full complement of 6.

Wonderful game if you can muster other players willing to play.

Caveat: PBEM gaming of this game is a hit-or-miss affair. Roughly 50% of my PBEM games were terminated prior to the game's conclusion. So often, in fact, that I stopped playing it PBEM. A full game takes about a year via PBEM. You can shave it to 6 months if you have a group that really moves along.

My first foam core insert


All the boards and rules as a lid. I cut the left side of the insert a little to make the boards easier to get up.


Events to the left, ages to the right, resources up top and the player aid and scoring pad is making a lid to everything else. In the bag in the middle is everything for a 1 player game.

This game is awesome, but the rulebook could be better organized. Sometimes the information you need for a particular situation is scattered over three different sections.

I was working on making my own reference page that organized all the relevant information together, but got sidetracked about halfway through and never finished.

I need to find that file and finish it sometime...:arrrh:
