The fourth edition of ''Twilight Imperium'' was released in 2017. It includes some of the content from the third edition's expansions, such as factional technology, flagships, and all the factions. It also makes a number of tweaks to the game's mechanics, largely with a mind to fixing percieved flaws with the previous edition.

** In fourth edition, the secret objectives are only worth one point, but players can get more of them. Up to three, to be specific.

* ForMassiveDamage:
** Most ships go down in one hit. Somehow a single shot from a fighter can take down even a cruiser. Ouch.
** Of course, most of the pieces may represent squadrons of fighters or other ships rather than just one each, though the Warsuns are probably one-for-one.
** There are certain action cards that let you take down one of the two-hit ships in a single hit as well.

[[http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/12493/twilight-imperium-third-edition Twilight Imperium]] (now in its third edition) is a tabletop/board game that uses hex map tiles to build a new map for each game. The setting is a galaxy where a minimum of three players and maximum of six can choose from among [[MassiveRaceSelection ten different alien races]]. Gameplay strategies may include battles, trade, politics, and/or any combination of these strategies. In fact, it is entirely possible and not all that uncommon to win the game without fighting a single battle, by earning points for accomplishing goals not related to combat.
