Ok so i know a number of boardgames/card games where you are assigning and fighting to particular areas in the last two weeks i have played my first ever game of Blood Bowl Team manager and i got a deal on Warhammer 40k conquest so today i managed to play my first 2 player game of it.

I feel that Conquest plays quite similar to Blood Bowl but it is a lot more polished less chaos and luck and of course only plays two players. I liked Blood Bowl but i feel that even though i played a better stratergy and was a stronger player the game hinged on a trophy that i lost due to luck. Of course going into bloodbowl TM i was aware that this is the style of the game, it was very fun and we had a lot of player interaction and laughs at moves and take that moments but i do feel luck played a factor but this is a good game for 4 players which is what we played.

Now Conquest felt a lot more stream lined and polished and it felt you where rewarded for tactical and strategical decisions. I did play the stronger faction of space marines but it really did tickle the same itch that bloodbowl does except in a more strategic two player.

It is a shame that this has i believe now stopped getting support, but from what i can see there is plenty of stuff that has come out for this game enough to have considerable reply ability. Of course this is only my first play but i am eager to play again and think that if you have sat on the fence about playing this game you should pick it up.

I have come from an MTG background and this is my first venture into LCG but it has made me excited to keep paying and then go forward and try more LCG's overall a very positive experience.

Anyone feel similar that has played both games?

I agree, Conquest was such a good game. Well... "is" such a good game ! Some people always play Conquest for the fun, even if there is no more competitive organized game...

I recommand you to have a look to the Team Apoka extensions : most of the people who are still playing Conquet are playing with FFG + Team Apoka cards :
