Product Description

DOW8301 Relic Runners Board Game Days of Wonder

Players: 2 to 5
Playing Time: 60 minutes
Ages: 10 and up

In Relic Runners, each player takes on the role of a character keen to exploit and acquire relics that have been unearthed in a long lost part of the jungle. Each would-be archaeologist has a colorful past - retired university professor, former army captain, etc. - and wants to be the first to get their hands on the precious loot to earn the most victory points.

The players earn large victory points for collecting relics of different types (set collection) and players can also earn bonus points for creating long routes and traveling along these to collect relics.

Contents:

- 1 game board
- 5 explorer sets each including: 1 explorer miniature; 1 explorer chart; 10 pathways; 3 toolboxes
- 24 ruin tiles & 20 temple tile sets
- 20 sculpted relics
- 25 ration packs
- 10 toolbox tokens
- 76 victory coins
- Rules

From the Manufacturer

N Relic Runners, players take on the role of intrepid explorers, running through the jungle trying to be the first to lay their hands on precious relics hidden in the depths of long-forgotten temples.  They 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 will need 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 is key as players who develop longer pathways between matching relics will be able to earn more points. Contents: 1 Board Map of the Jungle, 5 Explorer Sets, in 5 colors, each including: An Explorer Miniature, An Explorer Chart, 10 Pathways, 3 Toolboxes, 24 Ruin Tiles & 20 Temple Tile Sets, 20 Sculpted Relics, 25 Ration Packs, 10 Toolbox Tokens and 76 Victory Coins.

I've played it 3 times so far and I've used a different strategy ever time. It hits the sweet spot where it is both simple enough to learn and complex enough to provide a challenge. I've played it with 4 and 5 players, but the game has no ideal number so even if you have just 2 players, it will work. The game takes about an hour, but you'll want to play back-to-back games.

When the game shifts midway from collecting tiles to "relic running," those pathways really pay off.

This game has a great mix of game mechanics to it. It has some Jumanji feel to it, and some slight Catan feel, but in the end really stands on its own. The game does a very good job of keeping it simple, while not being a simple game. There are many ways to play the game, and at the beginning it seems that the end-of-game conditions can seem very hard to get to. However, the game does not take long to play. It ends up being much easier to achieve the end-of-game conditions than you originally think. It is well done, the pieces are nicely made, the instructions are easy to follow, etc. My 15yr old daughter loved it, too. We've played it three times since we purchased it two weeks ago. If ur a gamer, u'll like it!

this started a little slow. I felt like I couldn't get anywhere very quickly! but once we laid enough trailblazers in a row, things really started moving quickly. very, very fun. turns go quickly. light enough to play, but non-gamers will probably be intimidated by the rules and LOTS of pieces. artwork is GREAT. components are top notch! family game, easy, but with plenty to think about.

As with all games, it's much easier to learn when playing with someone that already knows how to play and is willing to teach you. Unless you play this game with such a person, you may not enjoy it too much. We played this as a family game over the Christmas holidays and never reached the point where we were confident we had understood the basic points. This was even with a few people that really enjoy playing games. The most humorous aspect (to me) was that we actually found a YouTube video to watch to try to come up to speed. I thought this was extremely ironic for a board game. The bottom line is that I think that Days of Wonder could do a much better job of providing concise instructions to get new players up to speed and comfortable with the game.
