Days of Wonder announces new Relic Runners board game
Fearless Explorers travel the jungle in search of lost temples filled with forgotten treasures and relics.
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France – June 18, 2013. Today, Days of Wonder announces a new large-format board game, Relic Runners, designed by newcomer Matthew Dunstan. Players follow trails across the jungle board map as they explore stacks of temples and ruins, ultimately hoping to uncover precious relics and earn victory points.
Players work to efficiently manage their resources: building pathways; making sure to carry sufficient Rations; and expand their Explorer's Toolbox to help them explore, resupply, take additional actions, and score bonuses. Skillful planning will lead to a successful expedition as they travel their pathways to capture valuable relics.
"With Relic Runners you get to plan and anticipate an amazing turn, hoping to outrace your opponents towards your goal. This feeling, along with an ever-changing board and the many surprising combinations for players to discover, are the things I am most proud of in the game," said Relic Runners designer, Matthew Dunstan. "It's a game where you definitely have to keep your eyes on what your opponents are doing!"
Relic Runners includes 5 Explorer Sets, each including: An Explorer Miniature, Explorer Chart, 10 Pathways and 3 Toolboxes; plus 24 Ruin Tiles & 20 Temple Tile Sets; 20 Sculpted Relics; as well as Ration Packs; Toolbox Tokens and Victory Coins. This stand-alone board game is for 2-5 players, ages 10+ and takes approximately 40-80 minutes to play. It is expected to be available worldwide in September 2013 at a retail price of $60/€50.
