Get ready for Runewars

Are you a boardgamer looking for your next big box game? Fantasy Flight Games might just have you covered with its new game, Runewars, which should be hitting game stores soon. I’d describe it as a mix of Talisman, Risk, and Settlers, and we’ll have to wait and see if they’ve taken the best parts of each game, or the worst. The factions do sound a bit cookie cutter (elves are fast yet fragile, undead swarm their enemy, etc), but who am I kidding, I’ll probably pick it up.

You can expect the usual FF production values and materials, looks like, and there’s a loooooong trailer to gawk at:

    Dood. I’ll play it! and Risk is the first thing I was thinking of as they were describing it. Like Risk + Civilization. It sounds kinda cool, and Im not a strategically minded person – so, I will loose – but it still sounds like it would be fun until I died.
