The real question is,
"if you love CoN will you love AoC?"
Thanx for the reply!

I can see why somebody who hasn't played both might compare them, but they don't really play the same. There is the broad thematic similarity, four contending kingdoms in a fantasy setting, and the components are very nice in both cases, but that's about as far as it goes.

I've played both--CoN three times and AoC once. I actually think in some ways you probably can compare them, both being "dudes on a map," but while I think CoN is a bit too mechanically simple, maybe, AoC was, for me, mechanically overcomplicated for the thin gruel of the theme, and I sold off my copy.

I have them both and played them both many times.
Conan is a bit like War of the Ring, 2 3 or 4 players, can be complicated takes a few times and studying the rules to get it.
CoN was designed very simple (this reason I Love It) More of a Risk kinda feel with many more options. The race cards are individual to each race and the treasure cards really define your race with powers that change from game to game.
Love them both
Wayne
