Description Edit | History

Empire Building in Polynesia, 500 A.D.
From the Developer, Fred Schachter:
Conquest of Paradise is a game of empire building in the "Polynesian Triangle" of the central Pacific Ocean for two, three, or four players. Players explore the unknown ocean around them, hoping to discover the most lucrative island groups, and colonize them. They build canoes and train warriors to create a force to defend their empire, while forging lines of communication with their developing discoveries. Resources are scarce; using them wisely is a key to victory. Investing in exploration widens your empire. Building warriors strengthens your empire. Investing resources into cultural innovations can yield unexpected dividends, like tattooing, hula dancing, surfing, or even the giant moai statues of Easter Island fame.

Conquest of Paradise is a well-tested, fast-playing design geared to appeal to players who enjoy games like New World, Civilization, and Conquistador. You can learn the game in 10-15 minutes and finish a complete game in 60-90 minutes.

Conquest of Paradise is a game of exploration and empire building, but also (as you'd expect from a GMT game) CONFLICT. Choosing when to build those expensive warriors, and when and where to fight, given limited resources, is key to your success.

7 Variant: random starting islands, with auction. (v1.02)
What would have happened if the Polynesians hadn't gotten started where they historically did, but rather on other islands? With these optional rules, each game will begin with a different set of starting islands, from over 100 possible starting combinations. To compensate the variability in starting player powers, the initial islands are auctioned for. The auction "price" consists in a higher number of Victory Points needed to win the game. You can find a map to clarify the setup here: http://boardgamegeek.com/image/1443043/conquest-of-paradise
