I bought RR soon after it's release. I thought it looked great and would be a fun family game.

We played half a game, then I played a couple of full games at game night.

I was done after that.

Anyone else have a similar story?

I can certainly see it playing out quickly, but I'll also add that for me this game was extremely player count sensitive. It played well at 3 but fell extremely flat at 4.

Relic: Expedition is an extremely similarly themed game, but I think it contains a lot more replay value and, in general, is better tested. I think Expedition succeeds where Runner fails. I don't own either, but am planning to own Expedition.

It's an abstract strategy game. The replay comes from your opponents. I think it's a very solid title.

I would think a 4 player count would work best. Most fighting for position.

Great game and it has Endless re-playability. At its heart its an abstract strategy game with a lot of chrome.

I couldn't agree more with the OP. We played it 3 times and then I traded it. I bought the game blindly because I like a lot of DoW games. Big disappointment.

I see DoW has a new game coming out, Five Tribes. I just read the rules. It sounds fun, but after my experience with Relic Runners I am going to wait and read the reviews and watch the ratings.

I think this is best with five players. It ends quite quickly and there is little downtime. It's a light game for sure but with enough meaningful decisions throughout the game.
