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

The Age of Conan strategy board game allows players to each control one of the four major kingdoms of Hyboria. 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. Yet, even the most powerful of rulers ignores one man at his great peril. Only one kingdom will harness the volatile alliance of the mightiest hero of all - Conan the Cimmerian!

Game mechanics 
Inspired initally by the best-selling War of the Ring game, Age of Conan has grown much during development, to adapt to a different setting and different mode of play. Age of Conan portrays a slow attrition of multiple forces striving to increase their power and influence, where the adventures of an individual hero can make the difference. The core mechanic is still based on a modified Action dice system, adapted to work with a single pool of "Fate" dice available to all players. Also worth mentioning here is the all-new "campaign system" . where the military subjugation of an indipendent kingdom depends on a series of linked battles, so that an extended effort is needed to overcome the many neutral powers of the Hyborian Age. 

Art and components 
The stunning cover art was created by the conceptual artist J.P. Targete. His work highlights the richness of Howard's setting, from the characterization of Conan himself, to the background dominated by exotic buildings and vast armies. Fabio Maiorana is in charge of the graphic design, and is producing a worthy sequel to the beautiful designs he made for games like the series of Wings of War and Micro Mutants . 
Military and diplomatic units will be represented by high-quality plastic miniatures, as well as Conan the Barbarian himself, and buildings representing forts and palaces are featured. The big game board, seven decks of cards, Adventure tiles, iconic Fate and Combat dice complete this luxurious edition.
