Donald, great to see your comments as I had lost contact with you sometime after losing my fourth game of Conquest to that lady genius. My daughter still loves Conquest (calls it 'The Elephant-Ship Game'). Your new game at with Camels and Seige Engines looks very nice, but that page is in German. Do you have an English page? Best of luck to you ... I miss our e-mail chats. I look forward to hearing more about this new game of yours. Take care, Gary

Yes, yes, absolutely. Hm. I'd love to see these problems and I think others would too. So it takes an omniscient mind to solve some of them, does it? Well, I think perhaps Joe Joyce could do it then! :-)

I am in Duesseldorf. was at the Spiel Fair to introduce my new game, Grand Conquest with moats and drawbridges. It is now available in Germany. See:

This game also has three new pieces: Camels, catapults, and siege engines.

Happy Conquesting,

Donald Benge

Would anybody like to see some really hard (but very pretty) Quest-Chess
problems? I have composed several hundred, ten of which only God and I
know how to solve... and I'm not so sure about Him unless He was looking
over my shoulder when I composed them.
