How about a Conan the Boardgame?

Postby Hoghose » Thu Jan 31, 2008 12:08 pm

As said in my topic:
How about making a boardgame set in Hyboria? I dont know if this has been suggested already, it probably has, but it would be awsome to say the least.

Does anyone agree?

A boardgame (Age of Conan) should be released this year by Nexus, the same Italian company which made the War of the rings boardgame.

With a little search on the Conan forum, you should find some threads about it. Or ask directly Strom if you can't find it.
An American-style kitchen is a kitchen in the living room.
A French-style toilet has toilet in the living room.
My neighbours combine both styles.

Hmm, a strategygame was not what I had in mind, but ok. I was thinking more in the lines of old Talisman or HeroQuest and the like.
Thanks for the input though =)

Yes, in this case, this is somewhat different.

Just picked up HeroQuest in a trade - never played it. But I have played Warhammer Quest. No reason why you couldn't use the MGP Conan rules for combat and come up with a Conan-esque game.

I'm also wondering if the new Age of Conan Strategy Boardgame will be too much like Risk in the Hyborian Age....
