Warhammer 40,000: Relic is the new Talisman inspired game from Fantasy Flight Games and it will be hitting shelves very soon. Before that the previews have started and this one looks at the enemies you’ll be facing as you travel around the board…
Just like with Talisman you travel around the board on the roll of a dice and then draw an encounter card to see what lies in wait. Could it be Orks, Eldar, Tyranids or something else?
The artwork looks great and it’s neat that it seems to draw on all aspects of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. My only worry with this game is that it will suffer from the same problems Talisman does, namely becoming a dice rolling exercise that lasts for a very, very long time!
This does say that the game is an adaptation of the original rules so hopefully they have tweaked it to be a more active experience.
Are you looking forward to this?
