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.

When the game shifts midway from collecting tiles to "relic running," those pathways really pay off.
Up to 5 players can play the game and the age recommended is ages 8 and up (more about this later).
Theme - The theme is in my opinion very cool. I think most adults as well as young adults will enjoy the idea of being an explorer that is traveling in the jungle in search of hidden relics via the lost temples and ruins. The player boards which each player uses actually allow a player to play either a male or a female. (i.e. if you have 5 people of the same gender playing, they can all be male or they can all be female. Nothing of making one play a male that is female etc.) This is a big deal in my family.
Components – As with all the games produced by Days of Wonder, the components and artwork is stunningly beautiful. The game pieces are above average quality when compared to most games you can purchase in a big box store. The pieces representing the relics are one of a kind. They are especially nice.
Setting Up – Setting up the game is really easy and pretty straight forward. One may want to have this set up already though before introducing the game to new gamers. It could be a bit overwhelming to new players. Once they get the idea of the game, they would get it and most likely could set the game up without any help should they want to the next time. I would also print a copy for each player of what the different icons mean on the tiles so players can have a cheat sheet in front of them to save on some downtime. I feel the age recommendations of 8 and up are right on.Read more ›
As other reviewers have mentioned, if you buy this and play without anyone that has played it before, watch a youtube video or two on the setup and rules. It will help significantly! The rules are just awkward enough that reading them from the book and teaching yourself and your first timers can be frustrating. Doable, but frustrating.

I enjoy relic runners. I could see an expansion allowing for more players and a few more temples, but I like the path placement and trying to beat out your fellow competitors. Read morePublished 2 months ago by John S.
Fun and somewhat challenging. We enjoy playing it occasionally and we would play it more often except that it takes quite awhile to set up and play. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Timothy L. Martin
