Catacombs Conquest supports 2-4 players who are either part of the heroic Sword Team or the villainous Skull Team. After picking the characters and spells from their hand of cards, players flick their characters and ranged abilities (all represented by wooden discs) at their opponents to lower their Health Tokens. There are also mobile obstacles that can be controlled by players to provide cover or disrupt their opponents. Walls prevent discs from falling off the table.
Catacombs Conquest is designed by Aron West (designer of Catacombs & Castles and co-designer of Catacombs), with art by the prolific Kwanchai Moriya.
