Grand Conquest is very similar to earlier versions of Donald Benge's Conquest. However it adds some interesting features. Now there are camels, catapults, siege engines and a moat around the five home points. The tube package comes with a vinyl roll out map, pieces in more distinguishable colors than previous versions, and a separate puzzle book (The Conquest games have had collections of puzzles developed similar to chess puzzles that are quite entertaining and engaging for abstract strategy players).
