I want to buy a new fantasy game and I'm interested in Conquest of the Fallen Lands and Return of the Heroes. But which one should I pick? And are they so different from each other that I 'should' buy both?

Please share your opinions

Hi ,

They are totally different Im afraid both are good but Return as more depth and replayability in my view.

Really? That's funny - I was trying to convince myself that Fallen has more replayability than Return

Is it games that non-gamers would like to play?

They sound similar, but are awfully different:

RotH: build up a character, wander around, take on questions, draw tiles from a bag to bring new creatures into the worlds, go to markets to buy things, and defeat the big boss at the end.

CotFL: Buy 'helpers' to deploy troops to take over hexes, which earn you money. It is far more of an abstract game with good choices and flavor art, but once things are played, they don't move around.

In short, if you want to be a questing individual, go with RotH. If you want to be a General allocating resources to generate income while competing against other generals, go with CotFL. Honestly, you cannot go wrong.

Thanks! After that description I'll guess that RofH suits me best

Hehe! Fortunately I already have some of them... and I'm keeping an eye on the pre-release of Prophecy
