Board & Card Games Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people who like playing board games, designing board games or modifying the rules of existing board games. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently started playing Twilight Imperium, and it's a blast. I really like the political aspect, technology aspect, and the mobilization of fleets. I really wish there was a PC game similar to this. I've been playing Civilization since Civ1 through Civ3, and that series is the closest PC game I can think of; however, it's not exactly what I'm looking for. I like how the production in TI is based on resources instead of production of a city. I also like how the politic cards change the rules as the game progresses. Does any one know of a PC game that has similar mechanics?

Hey Dave! Sorry I had to close your question. This site is for discussing Boardgames, not computer games. Also, we restrict questions asking for recommendations as they are highly subjective. –  Pat Ludwig Mar 29 '12 at 21:32
    
Hey Pat, No problem. I thought it may be off topic, but I thought more people on this site would have heard of TI than on the video game site. I got an answer, and I'm happy with that. Thanks. –  Dave Mar 30 '12 at 2:06
    
Spaceward Ho! is kind of similar but not as in depth. It's also got a fog of war aspect to it that Twilight imperium doesn't. –  Omar Kooheji Feb 11 at 16:22

The Master's of Orion series is probably the closest PC game to Twilight Imperium, and a great game as well.

Other people seem to think this as well, see here, or here.

You could also go full circle, and say that TI ispired the Masters of Orion boardgame.
