New Conquist Tournament Offers Risk-Style Multiplayer Battles Of World Domination

Risk is one of my favorite board games of all time. Schmeuk Studios’ Conquist 2 fed my obsession with a pretty spot-on homage to the tabletop game of world domination, and now Conquist Tournament threatens to take up all my free time.

With this new multiplayer-focused game, Schmeuk Studios focused on making everything work smoothly and easily. “No AI player can substitute for a human, so we focused on making the online multiplayer experience great,” they said in an email. “Players join matches effortlessly and follow every move in realtime.”

The team also created a smarter matchmaking system along with tournaments and leagues that start every two weeks, with trophies and a Hall of Fame. There’s even a new scoring system based on the chess championship algorithm (ELO) to accurately reflect players’ abilities on the leaderboards.

Added to all that is a new power card system, which bring a whole new element to the gameplay without unbalancing it. The cards will let players camouflage armies, spy on opponents, make surprise air strikes and more, like power ups.

Unlike the other Conquist games, this one’s free, so be sure to check it out.
