Runebound 3rd Edition - Announced
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.
I'm with Stan the Man - It would take a huge, spectacular, mind-blowing system to replace the old one in order for me to buy in. I'm like Buddy from the Incredibles...the biggest fan (besides Mr. Frank Skeletor, perhaps).
In Fury of Dracula I'm ok with it because the dice system was something that gave a little variance to the rock/paper/scissors system they had going. But tokens for Runebound combat? Get dafuq out of here. I'll keep my second edition, thanks.

Well, now we'll just watch two of the players fiddle and fumble with tokens repeatedly, then consult a chart over and over again. I'm not sure that's better.
When will these game designers learn that the best combat resolution is punching each other in the face until someone passes out.

Then cut to 3rd edition, with everyone flipping tokens or whatever. IN COLOR.
Don't forget the red ex and the blaring air horn over the old footage. Also make sure that one of the players angrily blows the bangs out of their face, grimaces and shrugs.
