Product Description

FFGAC01 Age of Conan Board Game by Fantasy Flight Games

Thief, barbarian, pirate, king.

From the Manufacturer

This is an age of strife and sorcery. An age of might, splendor, and decadence. In this age, powerful kingdoms fight for supremacy in the Hyborian world. Using armies, magic, and intrigue, these nations strive to expand their borders and increase their riches. Command the legions of imperial Aquilonia, the witches and monstrous creatures of frozen Hyperborea, the sorcerers and demonic servants of dusky Stygia, or the horse-hordes and cunning diplomats of the plains kingdom of Turan. Into this age of empire building, heroic achievements, and vile misdeeds steps Conan the Cimmerian black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, thief, reaver, slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the earth under his sandaled feet. Age of Conan is board game that puts players in control of one of the major kingdoms of the Hyborian age, period of history well known through the tales of Conan the Cimmerian, the barbarian hero created by Robert E. Howard. Players fight with armies, sorcery, and intrigues to make their kingdom the most powerful of the age, and to secure for their side the mightiest hero of all Conan the Cimmerian!

The map board is very nice.

You don't get to really control Conan, but you can bid for temporary control.

Like a lot of Fantasy Flight games, cards are used for more than one purpose.

Age of Conan is a strategic board game in which four kingdoms from the Hyborean age battle it out for dominance over the setting of arguably the first commercial fantasy hero. For Conan fans like myself this is too good a premise to pass up. The imperial conquest portion of the game is well designed and features interesting mechanics. Player actions are dictated by Fate dice that are rolled at the beginning of a round - the players then take turns in clock wise order, choosing which rolled action that would like to perform and removing that die from the pool. Players have their own deck of Kingdom cards which work not unlike those of a Collectible Card Game; the player pays the gold cost of a card to play it on the table and "taps" it (turns the card sideways) to use it. Tapped cards cannot be used until the player pays the gold cost again to "untap" it.

The goal of the game is to achieve more empire points than your opponents by the end of three phases, or "ages," of play. Empire points are earned in a number of ways: subjugating a neutral province, sieging an opponent's strong hold, or controlling Conan. This last method is where the game falls apart for me, and here's why; controlling Conan isn't based on player skill but on luck, it's also worth the most empire points in the game, and it is easy for a lucky player to monopolize Conan.

So here's how controlling Conan works - the players bid on Conan by placing a Strategy card face down along with a Conan bid token. Strategy cards are drawn from a shared deck of cards and give players bonuses on dice rolls during battles. Each player has their own private stash of Conan bid tokens.

AGE OF CONAN was a great surprise for me. I was looking for a light strategy game that could be really fun amongst a group of players who could know or not about Conan and enjoy it the same way. It happened.

The components are fairly standard Fantasy Flight quality. A heavy and sturdy box, beautiful mapboard, cards and pieces, some tokens to punch from cardboards and a well designed rulebook (a long one, by the way: 23 pages).

About the game itself, it's very fun. There are a lot of minutia and details and the rules, but they are well explained with examples. Set-up is pretty fast and easy. Like the majority of strategy games, the experience will be better if you play it with the maximum number of players allowed (in this case, four). There are dice envolved, used for controlling Conan, resolve battles and intrigue so, yes, luck is a strong factor in the game. Like a lot of Fantasy Flight games, cards are used for more than one purpose.

It's a very exciting game. All the time you must be expanding your army, following objectives, closing adventures, deciding between gold, sorcery, more army units, building cities, defending your provinces, attacking neutral or enemy provinces, having a good deck of cards etc, etc... This seems like a headache, but it's not. After one game played, the next one will run smoothly. Remember: the name of the game is "AGE OF CONAN", not "CONAN THE CIMMERIAN", or "CONAN THE BARBARIAN" or "KING CONAN". So, Conan is "just" a pawn (a very strong one, of course!) in the politics and military conflicts of that age. Don't expect it to be all about CONAN.

I highly recommend this game.

A very beautiful and beautifully-produced game. An involved game for boardgame and Conan geeks. Read BGG reviews before spending this much money on a game, but if Conan is your thing, and you like boardgames, you will not be disappointed in the production quality or art design of this game.

Conan is an awesome figure, I loved all of the stories about him. In Age of Conan, these stories are relived as players run the four mightiest Hyborian Age kingdoms: Turan, Stygia, Aquilonia and Hyperborea. The map board is very nice. Controlling Conan can really help a player out. The game has nice plastic pieces and neat cards. Overall, Age of Conan is great for those who love the Conan stories.

A fun game from Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) that brings the theme and setting of Conans world to the table. Each player is trying to build their kingdom while bidding for the help of Conan and hopefully crown him as their king. The game plays in three ages in which each age consist of four adventures of Conan. Playes build armies, send out emmissaries, take part in military campaigns, build fortresses and create cities. There are also battles and sieges between playes that makes the game exciting and fun.

You would think a game named the "Age of Conan" would be all about conquest. Trust me there is plenty of that. The best part of the game is the intrigue, the use of "diplomacy" to gain control of countries without the use of your military. Conan appears in the game as a tool to accomplish the goals of your empire or those of your rivals. Conan as you would expect works for the highest bidder. This game is fun and not the typical conquest game.

Great quality map and components and an authentic experience.What do I mean? I mean it is not a "we all start with even kingdoms" , play nice game.
1) The kingdoms are not equal in strength of military might. You will need to think and plan.
2) It is an age that Conan lives in,and affects countries ,with his presence...but, the game is not about him personally.
3) A fair modicum of chance will be involved in play. Will of the gods?
4) Really a game for 15 and up.It can get a little complicated for children.

Best played with 3 adults or more.
