Warhammer 40k: Relic Looks Pretty Neat

Yeah yeah yeah, I’ve been lazy about posting anything lately partly because I’m irresponsible, partly because I’m in the middle of both selling and buying houses, and partly because I’m ashamed to be a part of such an anti-Batman site as evidenced by some of the attitudes of its staffers. Anyway, this here board game looks pretty good and I thought I’d share.

If you don’t care to visit the advertisement site, Relic is a new title coming from Fantasy Flight Games that is effectively to Talisman what Scooby-Doo Monopoly is to regular Monopoly. That’s right, it’s a Warhammer 40K roll-and-move adventure game with most of Talisman’s mechanics more or less intact but with several coats of 40k paint (most likely overpriced and shoddy Citadel ones) layered over everything. I am 100% OK with this, although I would have been happier with a Timescape expansion for Talisman. Yeah, I liked it. There are at least 17 more of us out there.

No word on a release date, but it’s $60. I’ll definitely let you know how it is.
