Conquest of Nerath is worth every penny my friend. My team lost though it had a slight chance at winning at one point. I got my capital taken and that enabled my ally to swoop in and ALMOST take the capital of my opponent who took my capital. His attack came very close to succeeding but both my ally's unit and my opponents units ended up all being destroyed at the battle for my opponent's capital but because there was no one left to occupy my opponent's capital, my opponents capital remained in his hands while he continued to occupy my own capital. It's a well balanced game.
One mistake my team made was not sending our heroes on dungeon quests to get magic item treasures to enhance our army while the opposing team did. My rationale behind that was that the opposing team would have to send their heroes on the dungeon quests to battle those guardians which would in turn weaken their attacks on us and their defenses against us. So, I dedicated our heroes to attacking them instead of sending a few of them on dungeon quests. So, it would appear, that sending your heroes on dungeon quests is important in this game.
However, it was a very close game midway through. But if we did manage to take my opponents capital while he occupied my capital, he stood a good chance of retaking his capital. Which may have (or might not have) left my capital open to be retaken by my forces if he had done so by bringing in units from another continent in the game world by ship to do a coastal landing. It was an awesome fun game dude. If you play the long game on this game, expect a very long game.
The doors you see on the game board in some of the photographs I snapped with my smart phone are the dungeon quests that each army can send their heroes on to battle the guardians of those dungeons and get the magic treasures of those dungeons which in turn are used to enhance your army. My army was the yellow pieces that you see on the board and the opponent that took my capital was the black pieces you see on the board. My ally was the Nerathian League. After my entire army eventually got completely wiped from the game my opponents focused their attention on my ally who basically made it very hard for them to take his capital and once they were able to reach his capital, they had to attack his capital a whole bunch of times before they were finally able to succeed in taking it.
