Bring the Battle to the Tabletop in THE RUNELORDS BOARD GAME

Get ready to jump into action in David Farland’s world of The Runelords! The Runelords Board Game, coming to Kickstarter in February, is an engrossing board game that combines deck-building and wargaming to create a new, singular game experience every time you play. Will you answer the call and be the brave hero the kingdom needs?

Kingdom-Runelords

The Runelords Board Game is a modular tabletop experience for one to four players that can be played head-to-head, co-op, or solo. Game play is divided into two separate stages, sovereignty (building your deck with assets) and combat (deploying your army and battling). Sovereignty includes choosing assets with from the available cards in the market, taking a journey, gathering influence, and more to prepare your army for the upcoming battle.

Let Becca Scott show you how to set up the game board and begin building your deck–and your army–in this in-depth episode of How to Play.

From the powerful runelords to the smallest assets, each game card features stunning artwork worthy of an epic fantasy tale. Gather vassals, support, reinforcements, and influence to gain exclusive recruits from other runelords and level your own runelord’s power during twelve rounds of gameplay. New runelords will be available in the future through expansions to add even more fine-tuning to your game experience.

Once you’ve created an army worthy of your command, it’s time to fight. The Combat stage is easy to learn, but hard to master! Battles feature three action types and skirmish combat rules that aren’t overwhelming, so you don’t need to be a grizzled veteran of tabletop wargaming to learn how to play. Watch the combat stage unfold in this action-packed episode of Game the Game with Becca and friends.

The Runelords Board Game is based in the world of the bestselling fantasy series. The author worked closely with the game designers in its development; while there aren’t any characters from the books in the game itself, the tabletop experience explores some of the fantastic aspects of Farland’s world not found in the novels.

Designed to be cost-effective from manufacturing to shipping, the publisher and design team kept players in mind in all stages of the board game’s creation. Fans of the book series and dedicated tabletop gamers alike shouldn’t miss this opportunity to support a one-of-a-kind board game experience by backing the Kickstarter this February!
