VGA Planets is the most complex strategic diplomatic game ever. Got my personal copy from Tim personally in the early 90's. Is a originally for 11 players, round based, very long lasting game. 500 Planets, 11 different races with different advantages and disadvantages as cloaking, ground combat, hyperdrive and many more. The races lean on known races from the science fiction series as Startreck, Battlestar Galactica and so on. Every planet has different - or no - natives (giving you some aditional options), temperature and 4 different ressouces. Every race shas different starships and can equipped with different engines, weapons and amo. You have to manage minefileds, ionstorms and last but nod least your enemies. You can play it now in the web browser on some hosts as https://planets.nu and others or create your own host an play with (or against) your friends. This time there are also a lot of addons to the original rules. And if you like to play, you should not be too lazy to read all the documentations, hostorder and experience reports. Have fun. I played it many years also in german championships.
