  • The greens and reds are very difficult to pick out... can you bold them like you did in the top paragraph?

  • What is the problem with Conquest?

  • Re: Conquest of Pangea. The bits are great, and it's an Origins Award Winner, so I wanted to check it out. The people at their own booth had trouble explaining it, but I figured that might just be a person trying to demo a game their not familiar with. However, the rules are pretty tough to chew through.

    I will say I have NOT yet played it, but now based on skimming the rules and the incredibly negative reviews/comments from many of my GeekBuddies (most of whom rate it in the 1-5 range at BGG) I'm not holding out much hope for Pangea.
