Im not talking about conquest of the empire... Conquest was another game made in the early 70's. Some sets came with plastic and still others had metal pieces. Ill post a link to clear this up..

Hey Larry, I've got some questions ...

1. What's the price of this game going to be (approx)?

2. How long will it take for a "basic" game to finish, assuming everyone playing is a beginner?

3. How many players can the game take? Is the minimum 2?

4. My friends like Diplomacy, and some of them like axis and allies; others, not so much. How does this game compare to the two of those?

5. How does the game compare to axis and allies in terms of complexity?

That should be good for now ... ;) Thanks!

Elbow – Catapults have found there place in the new combat system. They are not as powerful as they used to be. There will be no catapult RUSH.

CanucKev –
1. Price? Not sure I’ll get back to you. I think it will be around 45.
2. I think, on the average, the game is about 3 to 4 hours.
3. 2 to 6 players.
4. There is a lot of A&A in Conquest of the Empire but there is a rich above board diplomacy game going on too. Lot’s of negotiations and threats of based on military power or the lack there of.
5. If A&A is a 10 in complexity CotE is a 6 or 7.
