Planetary Conquest is a free and fun, online turn-based strategy game that feels like a classic board game... with a few modern twists.
Up to 6 players battle for the world using an assortment of unit types. Each player's visibility of the map is limited to their own empire and borders, allowing for surprise attacks or diplomatic subterfuge using in-game messaging.
The sequential turn play order in Planetary Conquest is similar to board games, allowing players to login and play when it is convenient for their schedule. If a player does not login and take their turn within 24 hours they can be skipped by the next player in line, keeping the game moving.
Most games move through at least 1 full round every day. Experienced players average about 15 minutes per turn; many play during a coffee break at work!
With fictional and real world geographies to campaign on, Planetary Conquest boasts a range of maps that afford challenges for all experience levels and strategies.

· The player rating calculations have been adjusted slightly. It is now possible for top rated players to receive positive points for placing lower than expected but they won't receive the full number of points possible. If a player places too much lower than expected they will still lose points.
