This has pretty much become the standard around here... if someone asks to play a board game they usually mean this.

And the older you get, the fewer things you really love. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things. With me, I think it's one.

Love the theme & the components are great! Winning majorities in adventure tokens is really important, even more so if you can crown Conan (or"cown Cronan" as it's become known).

I took me a while to fully understand the rules & various phases of gameplay but I like games that require some work. Play time seems to be about 1 hour per player.

I think this is pretty good with 2, 3 or 4 players. The gameplay is better with less players but it's a shame to not use the whole board & all the powers ... so I'm happy to play either way.

Notes to self: you can 'siege' opponent's towers as well as use intrigue (but only if there are no enemy army units there for intrigue contests); 'control' means having a control marker (i.e. any building) in the province (but the player aid is wrong about final scoring - towers do not give VP).

I love this game and I know that if authors make better instruction - it would be a bestseller. Great figs, much to do, but time is running fast. Great game!

This is a great game. My girlfriend and I have played it together several times and we find it more and more interesting with each play. It is so much fun that we have actually had some disputes over the game, which I think simply goes to show how much we both get into the game while playing.

I actually usually lose when we play this game because my mentality is more suited to a straightforward wargame setting where you just build up your armies then go smash your enemies into the dust. This tactic never seems to work though because although I manage to conquer more provinces than my girlfriend (my usual gaming buddy) she always gets ahead on the other stuff and wins by a couple of victory points. Really frustrating but strangely I really enjoy playing the game, even when I lose at the end.

Being a Robert E. Howard fan, Age of Conan is a huge surprise for me. The game captures the atmosphere of the short stories and novelettes by Howard fine. I like the wargame level in the game, and the adventures also bring life to the board. The Kingdom cards are astonishing with the comic graphics! The overall quality is what you can expect from FFG. This is an absolute must-have for a Conan-fan!
Crom, count the dead!!! ;X

Update on 23 January, 2013.
As far as I can judge, the balanced randomness of the game provides enough space for cunning and bloody strategies and it recquires permanent adaptation to the changing circumstances. There are turns in the game when diplomacy is dominant or when more military actions come forward.

Update on 24 November, 2013.
Age of Conan is still the best one in my collection. We keep playing the game and it's amazing.

Just bought after trying it in Lucca Games. I think I still like its "older brother" War of the Ring more as a two-players game, but Age of Conan is definitely a better 3/4 players game.

received 12/6/12. Looking forward to first game.

Finished first game, and I can safely say this is the best game in my collection hands down. If you ever thought of buying this game YOU SHOULD.

Love this game. How the treacherous politics and undercover scheming are conveyed, and how the prominence of Conan's impact and (bulky) personality is integrated in a tense multiplayer game. Don't understand detractors: they certainly weren't thinking of a game set in what is Conan's 'own' universe, where one could play Conan directly and leave other players a shot at winning??

10 = Favorite Medium Heavy multi-player game.
It took several plays to get it down but this game is another WINNER from the Italian Stallions game group (Nexus/FF). They came up with the PERFECT way of handling Conan as no one plays him but all the players bid for his help. This totally fits his idium. Ingenious system for an amazingly fun game. Much of this game is comparable to WoTR and I would call them sister games. I pimped the game out painting the minis and then making picture counters of them for ease of board space.
