Conquist for World Domination

One of the many games I fired up over the break was Conquist. I got it on sale a little while ago, but haven’t had the time to actually sit down and play it. But for this weekend I spent several hours playing this one.

Simply put, its Risk scaled appropriately for the iPad. You can play against two computer opponents or you can play up to 6 actual people on the same device. It features all the elements you expect such as picking your territories, building up your forces, attacking neighboring countries, gaining extra armies for entire continents and fortifying your conquered lands with extra troops.

It takes a moment or two to get acquainted with the game and understand the controls. For example, I fumbled with the military cards in the beginning and didn’t understand what some of the buttons on the game board actually controlled. The manual is a little light on details so it took a little bit of trial and error, but once I got the hang of things I spent several hours battling the computer players in my attempts to conquer the world. Sadly my success rate after several tries was only 50/50. I held onto Australia until the bitter end, but when the computer turned in its cards and got an extra 70 troops I was done for.

At any rate, this is an excellent Risk style game that has multiple maps to choose from, multiple players you can compete against, multiple levels of difficulty, is formatted for the iPad and should give you hours of game play.

The official Risk game is on sale for $0.99 from Electronic Arts, but it’s not a universal app, nor is it formatted for the iPad. If you’re looking to play the game of Risk, I would suggest checking out Conquist instead.
