I don't know if FFG will keep these forums up, so I thought this a good time as any to offer this thank you.

Thank you Brad Andres, Eric Lang, and Nate French, plus others that were involved in the designing and testing of this game. Conquest is the best f*cking game I have ever played. I hope your work on this game brings you future success.

I agree, and I think this thank you post is appropriate.

 

I have played competitively dozens of card games since I started Magic in early 1994, and among all of those, I remember well the feelings of discovering Conquest at Gencon 2 years ago.

 

In most other games, I think the number of decisions I have to take regarding the way I am going to play my turn is not that big. I once remembered a Magic large constructed tournament I won and then realized that I barely had to do any thinking. My deck played. Not for Conquest.

 

I think I can honestly say that your little designing team has built what I consider the finest competitive card game I know, building smarter mechanisms than giant developer teams in the Industry.

Agreed, design-wise Conquest is a new benchmark for all other LCGs. Thank you all. I'll keep playing regardless until no opponents are left.

I played about dozen card games and none gives me the competitive juice I get when I play Conquest. It's the most layered and nuanced game ever. I'll be keeping my cards forever.

Agreed. Great work designing this magnificent game, something extra ordinarily and outstanding among all the cardgames I ever played ! Our small local community is really sad to see it end, but it will be cherised and played for the times to come.

Great topic!

What an amazing game Conquest is! I was lucky to be part of this thing from the get go when I recieved the first Core Box as a birthday gift. Oh the thrillz! It was an immediate love and 2 more cores after that.

Great job designers! And although Mr. Eric Lang hasn't been the main dude behind this, I give a special shout out to him for designing awesome games.

Also this has been a great community to be a part of. Thanks to all here too!

Fully agree, this has been my first foray into a genre of games I never thought I would find interesting, and it's been an absolute blast! Thank you.

Conquest is easily the most interesting card game I have played. AGoT is great but something in Conquest just clicks. So many decision points that could alter just one match. Great, innovative and interesting game mechanics. Game of this caliber should have had longer run. 

 

Happy memories live: I got to celebrate the first place at Conquest tournament last fall.  That is still my first and only tournament I have won (came close at AGoT regionals with 2nd place) but having won one Conquest tournament makes me so proud.  (Starbane is my warlord to go: The gaze of Alaitoc sees all, there will be no escape for you.) 

 

Thank you design team for a great ride and for awesome game!

Very much agreed, it's been the best. Great game design and may it's success and influence for ever inspire new game design. I've fully enjoyed the conquest community and am really happy to know that there are some amazing people out there. I'm keeping my cards and will continue to play.

Thank you Brad Andres for all the terribly unplayable cards that the community can now errata to increase our card pool!
