    I’m just curious here. Is it in your area? If so is it thriving?

     

    Or is the game slowly fading away?

    Matie I have never seen it played or even mentioned in my neck of the woods… not really surprising .

    However in depth research did indicate that my State’s capital, Brisbane did host 2 Runewars days … one on June 2017, that offically 1 person attended and one on Jan 2018 that 3 people attended….from a city of 2 million people and a State of close to 5 million I am not sure that coounts as a success….

    It is played where I live. I was at the shop last night and there were 2-3 games happening.

    I don’t think I’ve seen a game of it being played in the backroom at my favorite gaming store in Ohio. And I can tell it’s not that big a seller in the two gaming stores I shop at given how neither give it a prominent spot or much space. I think it had some buzz on release because of it being an ambitious fantasy rank-and-flank game, but it just wasn’t all that appealing to enough people when they actually gave it a look, so it’s fizzled.

    Yeah, I am located in Durham N.C.. I think it has mostly caught on here because the store owner and a few employees are interested in the game.

    My perception is that the game is dying in Sweden at least, lot of retailers who are trying to sell off stuff with rebates and also people trying to sell via FB dont get their stuff sold.

    It’s just myself and a friend who play it at my FLGS . It’s a shame really because I like the game and would like to play it more.

    To me it seemed like new releases were few and far between and people maybe lost interest because of this.

    Something I noticed at the UK games expo a few weeks ago was that unit boxes were being sold off by vendors for as little as £10 each!

    I don’t think I know anyone locally who plays it.

    My local stoe, Gigabytes in Marietta, carried it about six months then dropped it due to lack of sales. Maybe a dozen initial players, including myself.

    I haven’t played it this year at all.

    A lack of factions on release, and a slow release rate combined with anticipation over SW Legion probably did it in. Most of the people that would’ve played it we’re FFG fans and they went enmasse with Legions which got announced before Runewars got any traction.

    It’s a shame as I liked it.

    The starter box is still sat untouched on my shelf, couldn’t get anyone interested. Saw it going really cheap in places at UKGE, an indicator that it’s not shifting.
