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.
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.
Perhaps it's because I play a lot of board games, but unlike other reviewers I didn't find the directions particularly confusing at all. You only do 2 things on your turn: Move and Explore. That's all. There are movement bonuses based on where you lay pathways of your own color, but the basic idea is that you can only move one space at the beginning of the game, and later can move much farther around the board if you connect pathways of your own color. If you happen to pass some tools on a river path, you can use your toolbox for a free bonus while you explore.
When you explore, you spend a ration and remove the top level of a temple or ruins, and gain something as a result. This is perhaps where new players could get overwhelmed. Half of what you explore gives you something unique, and there aren't player aid sheets to explain the different iconography. All explored Ruins allow you to place an adjacent path, and all Blue temples give you victory points. Check the rulebook for the Ivory and Purple temple effects until you've played a game or two. When a temple has been completely explored, a Relic is revealed. If you start and end your movement on spaces with Relics of the same color, you score points equal to double the number of connecting paths, plus a 5-point bonus at game's end for each different color of Relic you acquired.
Despite the cartoonish art, Relic Runners isn't a lightweight.Read more ›
