Conquest of Nerath Boardgame

On June 21st Wizards will release its latest boardgame, Conquest of Nerath. The game, designed by Richard Baker, Mons Johnson, and Peter Lee looks like Risk meets D&D (which sounds like a badass pairing). While the last two games focused on party-sized combat, Conquest puts you in control of an entire army.

Here’s what the folks at Wizards ha to say about their latest game on their website:

War has come to the Dungeons & Dragons world! In the north, the undead legions of the Dark Empire of Karkoth march against the fragile League of Nerath, determined to sweep away the human kingdoms forever. To the south, the infernal Iron Circle launches its own goblin hordes in a campaign of conquest against the elves and corsairs of Vailin. From the snowy expanse of the Winterbole Forest to the sun-warmed coasts of ancient Vailin, four great powers struggle for survival.

Muster armies of footsoldiers, siege engines, monsters, and dragons to attack your enemies. Fight across the waves with fleets of warships and raging elementals. Plunder ancient dungeons with bands of mighty heroes, searching for magical artifacts and awesome treasures that might tip the scales of battle in your favor. The fate of empires is in your hands!

This game includes the following components:

  • Rulebook
  • Dice
  • Game board
  • 110 cards
  • 252 plastic playing pieces representing the champions and armies of Nerath, Karkoth, the Iron Circle, and Vailin

The game is set to retail for 79.99 USD.
