    Hi, I only installed Conquest this morning and had only just started a game before I had to go to work. That being said, I was under the impression that there would be new resources (e.g. tobacco) to discover and trade. The only new thing I saw was sugar cane. Are there others?

    I believe there are no new resources in the epic game, but there are new tile bonuses - sugar, tobacco...

    COme to think of it, it's funny they're called "exotic", since it's a mesoamerican scenario and for the mesoamericans they were not exotic, by definition... :)

    O.K. I saw the tobacco and bananas. However, you're saying that the tobacco is just a bonus tile and NOT a trade good? I coulda sworn I read something somewhere about it being a trade good. Anyway, thanks for the replies.

    Tobacco is a bonus tile in the Epic game, but it is a trade good in the Age of Discovery Conquest
