Warhammer 40,000 Relic Board Game:


WizKids is excited to announce the upcoming release of the iconic Warhammer 40,000 board game Relic!

A classic adventure game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this 2-4 player game has players venturing forth to protect the Antian Sector, shielding it from certain doom. Each player will choose one of 10 unique characters, each of whom has a unique set of attributes that can fluctuate throughout the game. Each character also has an affiliation, representing a variety of different memorable groups in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A scenario is then chosen randomly, which dictates the special rules and objective for the game.


At the beginning of their turn, a player will navigate the board by rolling a six-sided die and then progressing that many spaces. Players will then discover what threats they will face in this location by drawing the number and type of Threat cards indicated on the space. Players will then engage the threats by resolving events, battling enemies, and resolving encounters. At the end of their turn, a player may gain levels, acquire relics, or discard cards if their hand limit is exceeded.

A player wins when they complete the unique requirements of the Scenario’s confrontation in the Inner tier. Players who have entered the Scenario space in the inner tier may not move and must resolve the Scenario’s confrontation during their future turns. Will these intrepid heroes succeed in bringing the Antian Sector to safety, or will their mission end in failure? Pre-order Relic at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!

Don’t miss your chance to own a copy of this great grimdark classic! Make sure you visit Wizkids to find out more about this upcoming release today.
