Dinosaur sightings: The world can be yours with Global Conquest

Global Conquest is another strategy game in the 4X tradition (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) by Dani (Dan) Bunten. Global Conquest is a little more obscure than Dani's other games like M.U.L.E., Command HQ, and Seven Cities of Gold, but it is one of my personal favorites. Global Conquest's innovation was that it is was one of the first 4-person network games. That is, 4 people could play each other over a network, before this innovation there was only play-by-mail, hot seat, or via modem.
