Does anybody play board games that remind you of Eve in some way?

I was recently introduced to the game Merchants and Marauders, which is set in the Caribbean in the age of piracy, but the mechanics reminded me greatly of Eve. You start with either a combat or trading-type ship, you can fight other players or NPCs and rack up bounties (and loot), or you can trade resources and manipulate the market and make money, but risk getting attacked by pirates (either NPC or player).

Great game, a lot of fun, and reminiscent of our favorite internet spaceship piracy game.

Any other board/offline games out there?

In before off-topic: it's eve-related!

Not a board game, but "Wing Commander: Privateer" and "Freelancer" come to mind. They were both, imho, eve offline.

evochron mercenary, demo DL link

Personally I liked it better than X3 I just couldn't take how horribly x3's UI / interface is.

Almost forgot it will suck if you dont got a flightstick of some sort.

Not a board game, but I came to EVE after I couldn't get Masters of Orion 2 working on a computer. I needed a computer space game fix and EVE was my new answer.

Board game: Fantasy Flight's Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition - Shattered Empire.

A simple forum post can't do that game justice.

EVE Offline? I stare at the login screen, listen to the music and imagine I'm in an officer fitted vindicator popping some drakes. Good fun.

I too have to go with freelancer. That game was one of my favorites and eve is a bigger badder version of it.

It had that open ended ability to go wherever you wanted and do what ever you wanted. If you played on a public server you could attack anyone you felt like attacking and just hadd to worry about your status.

It was a great game and eve has captured and improved on the things that made it so enjoyable.
