Conan the King (Conan the Barbarian)


We have tentative plans to play Risk later. I am worried because the last few times we've made plans to do so, they've fallen apart.

I will post scans a few of the additional cards that we've added to the game to make it more fun soon. They don't actually effect the rules of the game, they're just sort of titles given to players who perform a certain way; examples include "The Rambo," for a successful single man defense over four turns against a large invading army, and "The Ineffectual Warrior," the use of which should be pretty obvious.

Conan the King (Conan the Barbarian)

...and my friends and I were just talking about setting up a "Conan" viewing while playing Risk...

Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And onto this, Conan, destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga.

Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

1933 - 2006

Apologies to lehah, as this entry is almost identical to his (in fact, it was from his entry I learned of this sad news), but there really is no other way to pay proper tribute.
