The ancient relics had lain dormant in the darkest reaches of the jungle since time immemorial. But once word of their discovery broke out, all manner of would-be archeologists rushed in...The retired university professor... the bombastic explorer... the lithe (but daring) heiress... and a shadowy former Army captain; all wanted to be first to lay their hands on the precious loot!
In Relic Runners you are a fearless Explorer, traveling the jungle in search of lost temples full of forgotten treasures and relics. Armed with nothing more than your trusty Pith Helmet and a nose for rare antiquities you'll explore Temple Ruins and Shrines and undertake Expeditions in a race to unearth the most treasure!
Designed by newcomer Matthew Dunstan, Relic Runners is a new large-format board game. 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.
