This is essentially a cardstock game of marbles.
If you are looking for depth of gameplay you are in the wrong place. But if you want to laugh and enjoy good hearty smacktalk with your gaming buddies, and honestly, about 5 to 10 minutes of playtime, this IS for you.
You set up the game pieces and literally flick your saucer around with your fingers. That’s it. That is the whole thing.

The components are actually of fine quality, but after being flicked around for a while they will start to come apart. This is a kinetick game, after all.

Bottom line though, it is fun and goofy, and as I said earlier, a great place for ridiculous smack talk. I picked it up for a street price of under $10. It’s well worth it.

I bought Warhammer 40k Conquest on a lark. Within two weeks I had bought every expansion and card pack I could find.
Conquest is a card/deck builder based in the far future of 40,000 AD. The galaxy has been colonized by humanity, but many alien races vy with the humans for control, especially in the newly introduced Traxis sector.
Gameplay consists of Building your deck within rules parameters, and then taking turns invading planets and appropriating their resources. Many games claim to be fast paced, but Conquest truly is. A middle sized game can be completed in under an hour with rewarding results.
The various card decks for the factions arethematically well done, and while certain powers are unique to given factions, it is very well balanced and quite easy to grasp.
There are a couple of small concerns as a few points are not well explained in the rules (Resource management, and loyalty icons are vague), and some faction rules do not make sense following Warhammer 40K canon (Necrons may ally with Space Marines).
That said, we have had a great time with this game and with the number of cards the deck building is nearly endless.
Another caviat, the game was Discontinued in March 2017 (This writing is in May 2017) as of right now the game can be found very inexpensively, as it is considered over stock, soon, though, it will become collectable. I advise you stock up on it as soon as possible.
