Conan is Back - And 9 Times the Size!
Perilous Worlds is publishing their first game and utilizing Kickstarter to lauch it. The game, Conan the Cimmerian: Tower of the Elephant, is a solo or 2-player only game, designed for players aged 14 and up, and takes between 30-60 minutes to play.
If played in solo mode, the player represents Conan, trying to steal the gem "The Elephant's Heart" away from Yara, an evil sorceror who possesses the gem and hides it in his 9-level tower. If played as a 2-player game, one player takes on the role of Conan while the other plays Yara. Regardless of whether the game is played solo or 2-player, each turn follows several phases: 1) The Dice Phase, in which the players role the Action dice and place them on their character cards; 2) The Location Phase, in which the players set up a dungeon box according to the scenario being played; 3) The Combat Phase in which Conan, Yara and Yara's minions do battle; and finally, 4) The Mopping Up Phase in which players can level up their characters and trade items.
