Hi Folks,

I have been pleasantly surprised by ffg's choice of theme. I feared they might take a break after invasion with warhammer...

Still i think there are plenty of head to head lcg and other card games in general. I have learnt to love lotr lcg for its coop nature that allows to go solo till up to 4 players. It gives so much flexibility and honestly i rarely meet up with a friend more than 2x a month..so solo play is always there...

It would be perfect to design that game to stand with a competitive and a cooperative mode. Just a thought...

Anyways, would appreciate opinions

I am surprised it's 1v1 too, as 40k made a ton of sense to do co op.

I feel your pain, amigo, being a solo gamer myself. I also play a good bit of LOTR and, though I love the art, there are a lot of things that I'm not thrilled with mechanics-wise and I have long wished that FFG would try again with another coop LCG.

But in this particular case I'm actually happy that it will be head-to-head. I'm a recovering 40k minis gamer who got fed up with GW and quit. But I don't mind giving my money to FFG, so I'm looking forward to perhaps getting a more palatabe romp against my buddies in the 40k universe. Plus, there's already Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game. Don't get me wrong, I would also be thrilled if Conquest were going to be a coop game. I'm just saying I'm ok with it in this case.

Edit: typos...so many typos.

Although I would love a solo variant too. I am also curious how the quoted poster arrived at 40k=co op. Seeing as it gets it's roots from a fairly intricate versus tabletop wargame...

With that said, I will not be even remotely surprised if this is successful that they'll put out an expansion pack for 2vs2 / 1vs2 like they did with star wars lcg.

Maybe they were thinking of Space Hulk?

Actually probably thinking more Space Marine Faction A (say Ultramarines) teaming up with another Space Marine Chapter or Imperial Guard or Eldar against something like Imperial Guard/Orks/Chaos Marines.

I'm curious how this will turn out. While I do wish it went the LCG route that Lord of the Rings did - I don't know who I could convince to try a 40k LCG.

Wouldn't match the great theme or IP for this game to be Co-op (which for me, at least, equals a do-not-buy).

SO glad they didn't take the lame co-op route.

Huh?! No, it really doesn't Dustin. 40K is a head-to-head tabletop game of massive conflict in a war-torn future. Nothing about that theme leads me to think of cooperation.

I would like some multiplayer rules integrated from the beginning, but i'm fine with 1vs1. In the end W40k is all about war ^_^
Should it be co-op and would become a no buy for sure.

I agree with a lot of posters here, if this were co-op, I'd be out. 40k is all about head to head warfare, anything else would have felt weird to me.

I'm excited to check this game out!

Co-op games are fine, but I don't like them as LCGs.

Yeah I can see FFG going the Invasion way and releasing a multiplyer box expansion for Conquest. That would be awesome.

Solo gameplay would be nice too even though I can't get to playing solo games, it would still be nice.

Or maby Team versus mode? 2v2? Would also be nice but the alliances would feel even more weird.

I'm pretty sure this was meant as sarcasm. If so, that big *whooosh* sound you heard flying over your head was it.

If not, I got nothing...
