Conquest of the New World is a Civilization type simulation game where you get to play as one of eight different races trying to establish a foothold in the New World. Based loosely on historical data, players can choose to make their colonist either French, Dutch, English, Spanish, Portugese or Native American. Starting with a simple village, the object is to dominate the surrounding country-side and, if possible, declare independance from the mother country. Success can be achieved through diplomacy, economic superiority or warfare.
Battles are played out on a chess-like grid board and are turned based. Victory is achieved when one side eliminates the other, or, retreats off the map. Choosing what units to create, training, and placement all affect the outcome of battle. ~ Jim Muntone, All Game Guide
