The Great War, Age of Conan : Adventures in Hyboria, Slaughterville and Clue: Game of Thrones!

The Great War 

The Great War, the latest adaptation of Richard Borg’s Command & Colours system, brings the epic battles of World War 1 to the gaming table, allowing players to portray important engagements throughout WWI history. The battles, included in the scenario booklet, focus on the historical deployment of forces and important terrain features of trench fighting in scale with the game system. The scale of the game is flexible and varies from battle to battle. For some scenarios, a few infantry units may represent an entire wing of a larger battle, while in other scenarios a unit may represent just a few brave soldiers going over the top.

The Command card system drives movement, creates a “fog of war”, and presents players with many interesting opportunities, while the battle dice resolve combat quickly and efficiently. The Combat cards add an element of suspense and will challenge players to coordinate their use in a timely manner. Overall, the battlefield tactics players will need to execute to gain victory conform remarkably well to the strengths and limitations of the various types of WWI units, their weapons, battlefield terrain, and written history.

In this core game, the main focus is on a number of WWI trench warfare battles. However, a series of expansions, which will feature early war, Eastern Front scenarios, tanks, airplanes, other national armies, plus more special personnel figures, are already in the planning stage to enhance your WWI gaming experience.

Age of Conan

This is an age of strife and sorcery. An age of might, splendor, and decadence.

Into this age of empire building, heroic achievements, and vile misdeeds steps Conan the Cimmerian. Black-haired, sullen-eyed, and sword in hand, he is a thief, a reaver, a slayer. All tremble at his approach, for he comes to tread the jeweled thrones of the earth under his sandaled feet. His very presence can disrupt carefully laid plots and turn the tide of battles, and no kingdom can truly control his actions.

Age of Conan Strategy Board Game is an epic fantasy game that pits the four most important Hyborian Kingdoms – Aquilonia, Turan, Stygia and Hyperborea – in a fight for supremacy involving war, intrigue and sorcery. Conan, the barbarian hero created by R.E. Howard, is a powerful presence, but he’s very hard to control! He may help or hinder your plans, while pursuing his own adventures to win treasure, women, and glory.

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 majors 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.

Age of Conan is a massive strategy board game based on the famous sword-and-sorcery hero created by R.E. Howard and designed by the same team of the award-winning War of the Ring game.

The kingdoms of Aquilonia, Hyperborea, Turan and Stygia will fight with armies, magic and gold to subjugate and conquer; but Conan the Barbarian, the greatest Hero of this age, may turn the tide in favour or against any player.

Age of Conan : Adventures in Hyboria

Adventures in Hyboria is an expansion of Age of Conan Strategy Board Game designed to improve and expand the role of Conan in the game.

His abilities grow as well, making his presence in the game more visceral and more important.

This remains true in Adventures in Hyboria. The expansion opens more opportunities for player-vs-player conflict, such as, for example, the new rules for Spies and Prisoners.
