Welcome to Terrinoth, adventurer! Runebound is a fantasy adventure board game for two to four players, inviting you to play as one of six heroes wandering the realm and taking whatever quests you may encounter. But all is not well in the realm: evil is awakening once more in the form of Margath the Dragonlord or the Corpse King, Vorakesh. Only you and your rival heroes stand a chance of stopping this threat before all Terrinoth is consumed in darkness.

Two distinct scenarios give shape to your adventures in Terrinoth, challenging you to battle undead or outwit a dragon, even as you explore lost ruins and forgotten forests and take on quests across the realm. New adventure cards and story cards for each scenario make every game unique, alongside the ability to customize your hero with over one-hundred different skills and assets. Whether you play as a mage bristling with spells or a powerful warrior, every game of Runebound invites you to experience an incomparable adventure. Take your first steps into the world of Terrinoth!

Runebound really does make you feel like an adventurer, learning new skills and acquiring new gear giving an RPG like experience to the player.

The players will travel through Terrinoth taking part in combat, exploration and social adventures while a story track counts down causing events to happen as time passes by.

The base game comes with two scenarios. The setup involves shuffling scenario cards into the basic adventure cards. These are played along side scenario specific story cards giving the players a story driven adventure to play through. However, when playing a new scenario you will have to swap scenario cards. When adding expansions this will involve further swapping in and out cards for the asset and skill decks. This may sound tedious and does add time to the setup, but the playing experience is richer and worth that little bit of extra time.

The movement is interesting in that the dice you role have terrain symbols and they must match the terrain you wish to travel on. The combat revolves around flipping tokens and using the symbols shown to take actions . When you acquire a new piece of gear there will be a token to match the gear, the player will add this to his token pool gaining new abilities. The players can also train to learn new skills, shop for better gear and take part in scenario specific actions.

Runebound is a fun adventure game with some nice character progression. The scenarios change the story and some of the game play elements, and although swapping cards in and out may seem tedious at first it really isn't all that bad and helps to keep the game fresh. If you enjoy story driven adventure games with character progression, then Runebound is a worthy game to consider playing.

A very enjoyable board game with a reasonably good RPG feel. Best enjoyed with two players or the game gets too long. Can also be played solo.
