    SOTS 1 is my favorite game. This expansion added the Zuul race which is great fun, they are the embodiment of evil, ship designs very evil-looking, they even have boarding chains :-)

    However, you should just get the complete collection which includes the base game and all expansions, you can get it for $20 or less.

    A lot of fun to play either alone or multiplayer although multiplayer can be quite slow. Simple game play, not a lot of "wow" factor to be found, but solid. Each expansion added meaningful improvements to game play.

  1. Born of Blood is a very good, though brutally challenging, expansion to the turn-based space strategy game Sword of the Stars.
  2. Adds a brand new (and fun to play) race that adds a great new dynamic to the gameplay, as well as some nice features to keep things fresh for fans of the original game. However, if you weren’t a fan to begin with, you probably won’t be won over with this expansion.
  3. Brighter than ever. [Sept 2007, p.78]
