Fantasy Flight Games Announces Runewars

Behold, the face of a $100 board game!

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.   You might also want to check out this post by Fantasy Flight CEO and founder Christian Petersen with some background on Runewars

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!

  1. Personally, I can’t believe that it’s going to cost a straight $100, but knowing the value that Fantasy Flight packs into their other games, I trust that it’ll be worth it. Now, if only I can get my hands on a c-note to pick it up…hm.

    I’ve been waiting for them to get some copies of Talisman back in stock; I’ve been wanting to try that for a while.

    P.S.–Thanks for keeping this blog, I’ve been following you for a while but haven’t been on wordpress to follow up.

  2. I was a little blown back by the price at first too. That being said, there’s not been a single Fantasy Flight purchase that I regret so I might pick this up if it dips down just a little more.

    Never played Talisman but I’ve heard nothing but good things. I’ll probably give it a go Gencon this year.

    Thanks for the encouragement! I know we’re not posting as much but some of us just can’t bear to let this little dog die.
