    A conditional sentence is one with a conditional clause in it, usually beginning with "if" or "unless" or another similar word or phrase.
    1. "If it wasn't raining, I'd play tennis". (If a certain condition was met, I'd do something). 2. "I'd fly around the world if I were Superman." 3. "Unless he's sober, don't let him in!"
    But you don't need "if" if a verb starts the sentence; "Would" is often a clue to a conditional.
    4. Had I not developed a headache, I would have gone to the party last night
    5. Were all your accusations true, I would be thoroughly ashamed.
    In this sort of sentence, you read it as "If all your accusations were true..." etc.
    Other possibilities:
    I will come to your party, provided that there are hot chicks there!
    "provided that" = "as long as"
