Conquest of the Fallen Lands
From the Publisher...
Conquest of the Fallen Lands is an exciting new board game for 3 to 5 players. It is easy to learn, fun to play, and a typical game ends in about an hour. Even so, this game has the richness, atmosphere and depth of a larger-scale wargame.
Here is what some reviewers say about it.
Tom Vasel, www.tomvasel.com (full review):
“Conquest of the Fallen Lands is a very clever game with difficult decisions and high replayability… It plays great with three, four, or five players, and has an interesting, engaging theme.”
“Each time the game is played, the board is different, the cards drawn are different, and the player can try a new combination of followers. That variety is a lot of fun for me. I enjoy games that play differently each time, yet hold some basic precepts and offer decent strategy and tactics.”
Greg Schloesser, www.easttennesseegamers.com, writing for the Counter magazine:
“There is much to like here. Conquest of the Fallen Lands has numerous clever ideas, particularly the concept of using previous conquests – whether your own or your opponents’ – to support future attacks…
Conquest of the Fallen Lands is quite good and has a fresh feel. While the objective is similar, it is not your typical attack and conquer game. It also successfully avoids the usual pitfalls of most conquest games, which is quite refreshing. In fact, that is a good word to describe the game: refreshing.”
The game is suitable for adults and kids ages 8+. Adult supervision is advised, or your children will play game after game and never stop!

|This game doesn't get a lot of love (probably at the assistance of its generic fantasy theme), but the mechanics behind it are surprisingly fun, fast-paced, and yet meaty. Its modular board ensures some unusual circumstances can arise every time you play.
