Monolith Games has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new Conan board game. The scenario-based game has several players playing as iconic heroes from Robert E. Howard’s books, while the other controls the various evil entities that stand in their way. The game even has solo modes, if you want. The game’s already more than 2x funded, so be sure to keep an eye out for stretch goals and extras.
From the campaign:
Conan is a miniature-based board game that pits one player, the overlord, who controls hordes of savage tribesmen, no-good lowlifes and undead minions against 1 to 4 players who incarnate the legendary Conan and his fellow adventurers. The gameplay is asymetric, as the overlord possesses a large selection of models and objectives which are his own, whereas the brave heroes are played from a first person perspective, much like in a role playing game. An adventure can be played out in 1 hour on one of the beautiful game boards (depicting iconic locations of Howard’s immersive Hyborian world) as you pit your wits, daring and tactical acumen against your opponent
