Just ordered this. Anyone have it or tried it?

I am neck-deep in the AoC mmo. Reading the books/stories by R.E. Howard. Figured the game looks interesting enough...

I haven't ever played it myself, but I did watch a group play through a few ages at a LGS. When I talked with some of them later they all enjoyed it and have played it again since. I think the game got dissed a bit because some Conan fans expected to be able to play an entire game as Conan, whereas he's really a wildcard in it and you don't always have his assistance. I'll add that from what I observed, it's very cool the way in which Conan is played and changes hands. I also noticed that in some ways it resembles War of the Rings, which really isn't a bad thing - albeit it's really more different than similar to that game. Overall, it looked to be very good game and one I'll probably eventually pick up.

well, it should be arriving this Friday. So, I will need to let you know how I like it or not.

Looking forward to it, actually.

There's over 100 plastic figs that come with it. I don't remember then in any detail, but one of them might have been scantly clad women.  nod

haha....sorry!!

The game is good...pretty fun. My wife and I played a game one night (sorry CeeKay, no random nudity that night). It is interesting...I had read a few months ago that there was going to be an expansion, but haven't followed through with checking.
