I am a HUGE fan of Conan and have read most of RH's works on Conan. I have collected the comics since the early 70's so it was a no brainer to look into this game.
I have played the game twice and I am a bit ho-hum on it. It had the feel of a "wargame".
My collection of boardgames does not include "wargames" in it because I find the subject matter and the mechanics dull and fiddly.
Am I correct in assuming that the feeling that I am getting from this game is that of a traditional wargame. I understand that a true wargame has many more rules and is probably a little more detailed than Age of Conan.
I wanted to love this game and while I wouldn't mind playing it if it was pulled out on the table, I would prefer to play other games instead.
