I was just wondering if anyone has the newer Conquest of the Empire game and can compare the size of the miniatures? I thought it'd be cool to use pieces from Empire with this game and vice versa.

I've handled both and my recollection is that the soldiers are probably close in scale. The boats in Cyclades are close to the same size as the armies, so don't expect CotE boats to have a chance to work in Cyclades(they won't fit on the spaces very well anyways).

Ok, thanks. I was more interested in the soldiers anyway. I saw the deal on CoolStuffInc for this game ($32).... wondering if I should get it ...

Well you should get it because Cyclades is an awesome game. If the minis matchup, more the merrier I suppose. And I do think they are close enough in scale. Though the Conquest soldiers may be a TAD bigger from my memory. But I just haven't had them on the table at the same time.

You should get Cyclades regardless of the miniatures -- it's just that good! The game mechanics are tight, and there are many paths to victory without one being out of balance. Good stuff. Probably my favorite boardgame.

I'll add another "it's a great game" claim to the pile. Well worth getting and lots of replay value.

I'd like to get it, but I'm trying to fill up my order to hit $100 for the free shipping. There's a couple items that I want that are out of stock though

It's a good deal, but I didn't want to have to pay $15 for shipping.
