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!

Great game for those who like Ticket to Ride. It's just the right balance of luck and strategy to keep everyone on their toes. Really fun!

Relic Runners is a boardgame in which one travels around the game board collecting different items to hopefully gain them the most victory points.
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.

The setup and first learning the rules of this game is a little more complex that I would have preferred, but once you get it up and understand, it is a fun game. Multiple strategies to win, and is a great combination of luck and strategy. It is fairly easy and lite on newer board gamers, while still complex enough for veteran gamers to enjoy as a . The game plays fairly quickly once you get going, and is a great combination of luck and strategy. The artwork is well done, pieces are nice and it has a great looking board, with a good box to hold it. I enjoy this a little more than ticket to ride.

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.

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.

Another fun family game from Days of Wonder. Easy to learn rules with straight forward game play with lots of ways to win. The fun comes from finding different ways to collect temple relics and score points. There are at least 4 different ways to earn vicotory points. Big family sized game board, great artwork and fun temple relics to collect. The age recommendation is right on, my 9 year old nephew got it, no problem. The games starts slow as you explore ruins and temples. After about 20 minutes the game picks up and it gets crazy in the end as everyone scrambles for artifacts! Have a blast with the family exploring the jungles and the rivers in this entertaining game from DoW.
