An age of twilight shall once more spread across the galaxy. A broken empire shall once more be reforged. Hidden powers from dark space shall come forth to make an ancient claim. War shall rage across space. Secret treaties, political whispers, and devious plots shall again echo through the halls of the imperial city on Mecatol Rex. Twilight Imperium Third Edition (TI3) is a historical publication in Fantasy Flight Games' history. Twilight Imperium First Edition was FFG's first game product, and through two popular editions it has garnered a massive audience across the world and the Twilight Imperium name has been a pillar of growth and recognition for FFG. TI3 is an epic empire-building game of interstellar conflict, trade, and struggle for power. Players take the roles of ancient galactic civilizations, each seeking to seize the imperial throne via warfare, diplomacy, and technological progression. With new oversized geomorphic board tiles, finely detailed plastic miniatures, hundreds of cards, and a massive plurality of options, TI3 arrives before an audience that has been starving for epic space conflict since TI2 went out-of-print in the spring of 2003. Shipping in a massive (12" x 24") epic-sized box, this new giant-sized edition of TI features more than 200 masterfully sculpted oversize plastic miniatures?the typical TI units (Ground Forces, Cruisers, Dreadnaughts, Carriers, Fighters, PDS, and Space Docks) as well as two new units (the massive War Sun and the Destroyer). TI3 contains new oversized board tiles, more than 400 cards, every known civilization of the Twilight Imperium universe, almost every expansion rule and component ever published for TI, a gorgeous graphic overhaul, and an impressive full-color rules set. The TI gameplay has been refined and redone by original designer Christian T. Petersen. The new design features faster gameplay and involves players in a far more active game experience with much less downtime. In addition, TI3 will include new Race Cards as well as a dramatic new approach to the structure of the gameplay itself, using the new "Command" system. Twilight Imperium Third Edition is nothing short of a massive epic release, and is destined to become a classic for years to come. FFG has directed all its craft, talent, and energy into this massive production. Are you ready for another Age of Twilight?
