It is, perhaps, the sign of a good game when people ask to play it, and then play it again. That’s our experience of Conan.

It’s a very cinematic game, and has so far proven to have very well balanced scenarios. Scenario 1 – In the clutches of the Picts – has been played the most, as Dave has played it twice solo, and we’ve also played it as a group.

History was reversed, the Finns launched furious charges and decimated the Soviets with their SMG fire. Heavy casualties all round. On another table Petri’s confederates trashed Eero’s Union army in a 1861 Longstreet game. As […]
