Boardgame of the Week Relic
If you like Talisman and remember Talisman Timescape fondly, you would like Relic which is Talisman set in the Warhammer 40k universe, meaning that you have 10 40K characters to choose from when playing. Players circle a Warp rift, fighting against the forces of Chaos and working to defeat the evil that lives beyond the rift. 2-4 players expect to take 1-2 hours to play. I think, given the system derives from Talisman, that 2 hours is pretty optimistic. Was highly anticipated but anticipation was greater that actual desire and sales never approach those of Talisman.
