Conquest game that lost its way with pasted on mec
I love giant multiplayer games of epic conquest, and was all gungho for TI3. It came up rather wanting in actual play though. Lots of Euro game mechanics are patched together without any kind of connection to the theme. Role selection makes no sense- how come I can't try to do something just because my opponent is? The biggest problem is the victory conditions...victory points. The goal of a conquest game should be...conquest! Not picking up victory points for no good reason like the Euro of the day. Sold my copy, hopefully new owner will enjoy it more. The production values are outstanding.
