comment Problems with learning curve and player elimination in Eclipse
@K.L. I was mostly referring to the random element of ship battles. But even the greenest novice will recognize the advantage of a tile with two or more planets to colonize, or that paying resources for an empty tile isn't advantageous. I really don't think there is a lot of deep strategy in coping with the random element of tile draws. The real strategy is knowing when to explore tiles and where to explore for them on the board.

comment Problems with learning curve and player elimination in Eclipse
@K.L. Sorry, this question is subjective. How do you define similar? Broadly, Puerto Rico is similar, but not space-themed. Is Twilight Imperium similar because it has a hex tile setup? If you found a game that's similar enough, wouldn't it be because it is random? By the way, randomness is a good thing in a game like this. It levels the game a little. It means that those who don't have the same knowledge/strategy strengths still have a chance with a little luck.

comment Magic card database for websites
While I agree with Jonathan that this is a better question, I also agree with Pow-lan. Even though it's similar to the previous question, it's actually off-topic.

comment Does Phantom Flock still prevent damage if it has no counters left?
@Matt I don't see it as broken, since all you need to do is get rid of the Aven Brigadier, even temporarily, to kill the Phantom Flock. I can think of many far more broken card combinations in Magic. :-)

comment Eclipse ship parts - infinitely stackable?
This answer is correct. I believe the question assumes by using the word "stackable" that covered part tiles are counted, but clearly that's not the intent of the rules. Page 13: "When placing the tiles, you may place the tiles on top of any of the printed starting Ship Parts on your Ship blueprints, but not on top of other Ship Part tiles." If you're replacing ship parts, the part tiles in that blueprint slot are removed first. Covered blueprint parts are not counted towards ship capabilities.

comment Diminishing Returns vs Increasing Returns
Welcome to the site! I like the idea of your game, but I don't understand what you're asking. The way this question is written makes it too subjective and the answers opinion based and not a good fit for a stackexchange site.

comment Can I “hide” a Vesuvan Shapeshifter?
@Jefromi I'm not a tournament judge, by any means, but yes that's how I read the situation. (You would also have to tell them which one you flipped last turn.) It would be like if someone played a spell that let them look at one card in your hand… if they forget what that card was, that's their problem.
