My Runewars does not have Magic Gate counters.

Just to be clear, I am talking about this:



edit: looking at the new rulebook, it says that these exploration tokens are still included in the reprint. Is it possible you've overlooked them?

I am talking about these:

Hi kara,

The gates and teleportation tokens are used in the optional exploration variant. Check the token reference sheet to find the image that is used.

Just in case anyone is wondering, I have 2nd edition and I have those tokens. I've haven't played with that variant yet, though ...

I like the Exploration Tokens variant, just gives a little extra spice to the game. I do sometimes take the Flooded Area tokens (from the expansion) out of the game though, although with the Revised Edition allowing heroes to move more easily in Winter, it's less likely that they'll get stuck somewhere with floods.

The tokens are great, I play with them every time. The portals don't make much of a difference that often, though.

For us, they usually end up being right next together a lot

However, in the occasional game where they DO become more useful, they can be very fun (if someone doesn't destroy them first).

The key thing that these tokens add are dragon thrones which act as dragon runes, and in fact, the discovery of them often acts as a lynchpin on the map where there is battle after battle for control of that final rune.

The teleportation tokens are somewhat incidental. Occasionally they are useful, but more often than not, even when they appear they are never used.

I have considered creating pre-made maps using specific magic portal tokens as already revealed. Has anyone else had success with this?

Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

You haven't lived until your Blackmail drains your opponent's influence, and he has no influence leftover to retreat through the Magic Portal, so all his units die...

there must be a map for The Realms of Terrinoth if you goggle it.

For what it's worth, going off the Runebound map, it's not really possible to make an exact replica of the map using Runewars tiles; the spacing isn't right, and in a couple cases, the map tiles don't have them in the right order.

You can come kind of close, but not "exact"
