I have often times found myself wanting to take my digital conquests in games such as Civilization IV to my sizable coffee table. Many a time has this simple piece of swedish furniture been transformed into a stage for epic battles and unspeakable horrors. A lot of these times, it’s been with the help of a Fantasy Flight game. We got a press release dropped to us with some info concerning their next epic-sized box format release.
Scheduled for release this winter at MSRP $99.95, Runewars is a board game based around empire building, battles, quests, and resource management. If your a fan of the setting for Runebound and Descent: Journey’s in the Dark, you’ll be happy to hear that Runewars is based in the same universe. When they say epic-sized, they mean it as the game will contain nearly 200 plastic mini’s, 3-D mountain terrain, and hundreds of cards and tokens.

How they manage to fit all their pieces into one man made board game box is always a wonder to me. I might just need to buy myself another piece of stylish swedish furniture and prepare myself and 2-3 other friends for merriment this winter!
