Thief, barbarian, pirate, king. Robert E. Howard's tales of the exploits and adventures of Conan have inspired generations.

Command armies, wield dark sorcery, or weave cunning intrigue - all are needed in order to conquer your enemies and make your kingdom the most powerful in the world.

|This is an epic game of battles between empires in the Conan universe. Components are great and the game plays very well, but what I'm really excited about is the way a common pool of dice is used to determine which actions you can perform. This gives the game just the right amount of variability, open information and limited actions to provide a new experience each time we play.
|A game of conquest set in the Hyborian Age of Conan the Barbarian. The game has a lot of strategic depth and the theme is enhanced by the unique character of the 4 playable kingdoms. It's too bad an expansion was never produced to flesh out the rest of Hyboria, though.
