(not necessary AS Conan) yet my options of Conan CCG and Age of Conan are both equally unavaible. Both seem to be great games yet the ccg looks like its deader than dead and AoC got a hefty pricetag and low avaibility here in the north.

Any suggestions as to how i shall quench (word of the day) my thirst for Hyboria?

I am a minor Conan/Kull fan. Did you read these beautiful bundled stories of Conan already? (by Howard, not Jordan or someone else)

http://www.bookdepository.com/Coming-Conan-Cimmerian-Mark-Sc...

Great site I recently discovered... worldwide shipping is free. Crazy!

I don't think there is another pure Conan game out there unfortunately.

Homemade Conan RPG?
Get ANY paper RPG system (warhammer 2nd ed comes to mind but Vampire Dark Ages is more flexible - You use like 3/4 of character card and basic game machanics)and replace fluff with that of R.E. Howard Conan series.

You will need some people to play with as well as a load of time but
it will suerly quench Your thirst (with gasoline hopefully).

Done it with both Vampire masquerede and Dark Ages and the game sort of
grown around the mechanics nicely every time.

Actually it was just the one book i found in my bookshelf, coming of conan the cimmerian. It's a shame it's a paperback and not a good looking hardback but supposably it's the most correct edition out there (the chronicles hardback edition i heard is somewhat censored). But cool site nevertheless, free shipping is pretty sweet!

I was hoping no one would say Munchkin Conan, kind of pisses me off. The game i mean, not the recommendation

What's wrong with Conan Role-Playing Game?

Collector's Point still has boosters it seems but no starters.

I too am irked that FFG has Christmas sales every year with super-low prices on Age of Conan (and Android), but here in Sweden those two games NEVER get marked down from their ridiculously high prices (much higher than US on-line stores).

Hmm, I wonder if any friendly Swedish BGGer, ideally with a Paypal account might be interested in placing an order and shipping the boosters to me, naturally for compensation? I was too late in buying Conan boosters from my FLGS's clear-out sale of Conan stuff cry .

I did not say that I like it. I said it will be there.

We (Gameslore) have copies of Age of Conan, but shipping to Sweden from the U.K is not cheap unfortunately.

But if you were thinking it was unavailable, it isn't.

I own a copy and I enjoy the combination of wargame and Conan travelling across the board on his adventurers, wondering if I can make use of him as he nears a potential battle area.

Cool!

Can you get "Conans" in the boosters or do you only get them in the starters? Not really a big problem if you dont, you probably can proxy the conans pretty easy.

You can potentially find 4 of the 8 Conans in the boosters. 4 Conans are fixed, one for each of the Starters, leaving 4 for booster (or starter) draws based on rarity:

Conan the Barbarian (Uncommon)
Conan the Destroyer (Rare)
Conan the Savage (Rare)
Conan the Champion (Ultra Rare)

I highly recommend the three book series. You will have all the Conan stories as they were meant to be.

Yep, I got them all

Beautifully produced with nice illustrations.

Maybe I am going to order the Kull one. But first I had to finish reading "the Bear" by R.A. Salvatore
