Twilight Imperium Shattered Empire Map Variant 1
Here we have a six player map variant using system tiles from the Shattered Empire expansion.
Mecatol Rex, the Home Systems, and Rings 1, 2, and 3 of this map are generated as per the Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition Rules of Play (Creating the Galaxy, pg 8) with one difference being that 25 random systems are removed instead of 2.
Once the players generate the normal six player 3-ring galaxay map, 3 additional systems are then dealt to each player. Each player places their 3 systems adjacent to the left, right, and rear of their own home system. These systems form the rim of the galaxy and can be placed anyway they choose as long as any Special Systems are not touching each other.
