The Conan board game’s funding target on Kickstarter was $80,000. It has 27 days to go and the game has already crushed that $80k, driven the gamers before it, and heard the lamentations of their wallets by cruising on up to over $525,000.
The game in its most basic form comes with a ton of nicely deailed minis, but the lamentations of those wallets have added a ton more, and another game board to everybody’s games. From mummies and pirates to Natohk, these players are getting a lot. As it stands, only a couple of stretch goal bonuses remain, and it’s only a matter of time before those are exceeded.
Gameplay wise, Conan looks like it could be a good romp. One to four players take on the roles of Conan and his followers, and they are opposed by another player who is playing as overlord. The overlord controls hordes of evil minions that the heroes will have to smash. Hit up the Kickstarter page for more information than you probably want.
