Age of Conquest is a medieval Risk-like turn-based strategy game where you take the reins of a budding empire and struggle against fellow empires for control of the world. In one game, up to 100 players vie for supremacy, but only one can be victorious. Every game you win pushes up your score, until you don't just dominate the world, but also your fellow players. So, will your place be in the history books or in the mud? Will you govern or will you grovel? Do you have what it takes to rule the known world?
Age of Conquest is a turn-based strategy game somewhat like the classic Risk, but more in-depth. The goal is to conquer the map by taking over all the provinces on the map. Each turn you first view the events for the current turn and then input the orders for the next turn. You are able to recruit new soldiers, build watch towers and fortifications, move/attack, or disband military units. Typically you will buy new soldiers, attack adjacent provides to increase the size of your empire and add watch towers or fortifications to increase the defensive strength of a province. You are also able to fine-tune your finances by adjusting income and expenses. You can send out diplomatic requests or respond to diplomatic inquiries to foster relations with your neighbors.
