My granddad bought or gave us this board game when I was a kid (circa 2000), which my family and I used to play with. However, none of us can remember the name of it and and both my grandparents are long dead. cry

All we can remember is:
-It's a strategy warfare game with no dice

-It contained Infrantry, tanks(worth 3 infantry), ships(worth 5 infantry) and airplanes(worth 7 infantry).

-Everyone had to write down their next move before the timer Egg timer ran out and then make their move

-Board game had 4 corners with different colours. Used to look something like (BUT ITS NOT THIS GAME)

Image Hexagames 1983

It's not a very common game as both my dad and I can't find it on the web. If we can't find it and we used to own it I doubt any of you will.laugh Anyway please help me find it. I'm from the UK btw.

It'a certainly a Conquest board (says so on the board), but I never saw a copy with tanks, infantry, and planes.

The closest I think I've seen to your description is Hit the Beach, but I don't recall it having any tanks.

shake I said it looks like this picture but it's not the same board game so it doesn't matter if it says conquest. It looked different.

I don't think I'll ever find it.

Anyway what's the version of conquest called on the picture?

It's not hit the beach doesn't look like it. But thanks anyway.

Yup, it's Power and it's a fantastic 4-player board game. It comes out at least once a month at our gaming group.

robotI will need to! Can't find it anywhere on sale in the UK. He must have bought it from a visit to America or it was from one of my uncles, one settled in the UK in the 90s.
