Relic Runners


Family, light-strategy board game published in 2013 by Days of Wonder. Players are archaeologists racing around the jungle, trying to recover the fabulous relics before their opponents.

Relic Runners started life in October 2011, soon after I moved to Cambridge from Australia. It was originally called Wandering Monks, and was entered into the Europa Ludi competition in 2012 where it was chosen as a finalist. You can read an interview about the design and inspiration for the game over at Meeple Town.
