 I bought AoC, because i got it cheap.

Hopfully, i haven_'t done a mistake buying AoC over Runewars or Chaos in the Old World.

While I do prefer Chaos in the Old world and Runewars over AOC, all three are great games.


Saying that, all three are very very different in play...

While I have not played it I have heard that AoC is a very good game.  I intend to pick it up at some point.  I have not heard to many good things about Chaos in the Old World.  I have played Runewars and while it has gotten alot of positive feedback I felt it tried to do to many things for my taste.  It is a beautiful game however.  For the truly epic "area control game" I prefer TI3.

Runewars is a mess of a game with AoC a little bit better.  If you have 4 players get CiTOW and never look back, it's an amazing game.

 They are three great games but very different. CitOW is the exquisitly balanced knife-fight in a phone booth. Runewars is less focused but has a lot of cool synergies running through it (I think of it as Twilight Imperium light). Age of Conan is a slower moving, more deliberate game experience with less sudden maneuvers and surprise attacks.

All three great games that deserve to get played.

AoC works well with my group, but I wish we had more time to play it.  I think you made the right choice.  Especially, if you got it for a good price.  That is the same reason I ended up getting the game.

Age of Conan is a good game. You made an excellent choice.
