Monolith Board Games LLC is currently heading up a Kickstarter to raise funds for a Conan board game, and things are looking pretty good: they’ve raised over $500,000—obliterating their original goal of $80,000 (and they still have 26 days to go!).

Conan fans will definitely love this game, as it features everything from Natohk to mummies. The description reads:
Conan is a miniature-based board game that pits one player, the overlord, who controls hordes of savage tribesmen, no-good lowlifes and undead minions against 1 to 4 players who incarnate the legendary Conan and his fellow adventurers. The gameplay is asymetric, as the overlord possesses a large selection of models and objectives which are his own, whereas the brave heroes are played from a first person perspective, much like in a role playing game. An adventure can be played out in 1 hour on one of the beautiful game boards (depicting iconic locations of Howard’s immersive Hyborian world) as you pit your wits, daring and tactical acumen against your opponent.
