I may have mentioned many moons ago, backing not one but two Conan the Barbarian based games on Kickstarter. Last year proved to be Conan's year on the Crowdfunding sites, with at leas four different games appearing over the year. Xmas Eve saw my copy of the first of the games I funded arrive and finally after a bit of a break due to study I was able to get the game to the table a couple of times last week.
Age Of Conan: the Strategy Board game, is as the name implies an area control strategy game, in simplest terms it has a passing resemblance to games like risk, but it is more sophisticated, and whilst of course these additional complexities add to the learning curve, the reward is a far more interesting game.
