WizKids is excited to announce the upcoming release of the iconic Warhammer 40,000 board game Relic!
A classic adventure game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this 2-4 player game has players venturing forth to protect the Antian Sector, shielding it from certain doom. Each player will choose one of 10 unique characters, each of whom has a unique set of attributes that can fluctuate throughout the game. Each character also has an affiliation, representing a variety of different memorable groups in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A scenario is then chosen randomly, which dictates the special rules and objective for the game.
At the beginning of their turn, a player will navigate the board by rolling a six-sided die and then progressing that many spaces. Players will then discover what threats they will face in this location by drawing the number and type of Threat cards indicated on the space. Players will then engage the threats by resolving events, battling enemies, and resolving encounters. At the end of their turn, a player may gain levels, acquire relics, or discard cards if their hand limit is exceeded.
A player wins when they complete the unique requirements of the Scenario’s confrontation in the Inner tier. Players who have entered the Scenario space in the inner tier may not move and must resolve the Scenario’s confrontation during their future turns. Will these intrepid heroes succeed in bringing the Antian Sector to safety, or will their mission end in failure? Preorder Relic at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!
Relic Standard Edition has an MSRP of $69.99 or Premium version for $119.99
Also on its way from WizKids is Dungeons & Dragons Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Adventure System Board Game, the newest addition to its Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System series of board games, is coming soon!
This exciting release, inspired by the newly-released Dungeons & Dragons campaign of the same name, sees players journeying through the Yawning Portal to Undermountain to take on the creatures and quests that lie within. The game is campaign-based, with a variety of adventures to experience, but any adventure can also be played on its own as a one-shot. Each player will choose one of 5 different heroes as they take on these exciting, often difficult, but ultimately rewarding ventures.
As always, Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Adventure System Board Game can be combined with the previous games in the Dungeons & Dragons Adventure System series to create unique, one-of-a-kind adventures that will bring heroes back again and again. Additionally, Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage Adventure System Board Game adds a variety of new and exciting features to make players’ adventures more epic than ever before! Players can now reach level 4 with their characters, allowing them to grow stronger and gain even more powers. Bane/Boon cards have also been added, which, when drawn, will have a positive or negative effect. We’ve also added even more Environment cards, allowing for greater immersion in the ever-evolving dungeon of Undermountain.
