It's not midnight yet!
Although it was a close run thing getting back to Fareham in time for this post - the game of Eclipse at pasta night lasted several hours, mainly because about half-way through play slowed down as we all started seriously thinking about our moves. In the end Planta (played by Beth) won through a mix of an expansionist policy and racial bonuses, while the Terran Alliance (played by me) came second through a strong economy and a highly effective defensive force (this time round I optimised my ships as glass cannons - armed with improved drives, antimatter cannons and positron computers they stood a high chance of one-shotting anything they faced, but were very vulnerable to return fire from any survivors).
