Asmodee’s upcoming release of Monolith Edition’s Conan board game into the game trade, scheduled for the fourth quarter, is going to carry an aggressive $100+ retail price.

Based on the works of Robert Howard and designed by Frederic Henry (Timeline, The Adventurers), Conan is an overlord-style game of adventure for two to five players (see “‘Conan’ Board Game’”) packed with plastic miniatures.  Monolith funded the game through a $2.5 million Kickstarter campaign.  Asmodee will be handling the distribution of the game into the trade following the fulfillment to Kickstarter backers, starting in the fourth quarter of this year.

The updated component list for the game includes 74 plastic miniatures, 4 hero sheets, a plastic “Book of Skelos” used by the Overlord player to manage the game’s enemies, 2 double-sided boards, 45 tiles, 9 custom dice, 75 plastic gems, 55 cards, 148 tokens, and 2 rulebooks.  The game is for 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, and each scenario plays in about an hour and a half.  MSRP is $119.99.
