I'm mystified as to what advantage the "Conan Bonus Card" gives a player. As I understand it, all it does is allow you to play another Strategy Card in the Bid phase once all bids are revealed and use that instead of the one you played (although both cards are discarded afterwards). Assuming most players would bid their highest value card (as controlling Conan as much as possible seems to be a good tactic) then won't the player with the Conan Bonus Card end up bidding their highest card in the end anyway, in which case why not just bid it right at the start and not waste two cards?
Just wondering how this benefits the player. All replies much appreciated.
It's true this one is not used as often as the other "bonus" cards, but wow! The one time you need it, and you use it to get control of Conan, you will be very glad indeed.
