Runerunners Board Game Coming Soon to Kickstarter

You know, just the other day I mentioned that you don't tend to see a lot of Prohibition-era Fantasy games (while talking about a Prohibition-era fantasy game). Well, it looks like other people had the same idea a while ago and have been working on making some. SkirmishGames plans to soon be launching a Kickstarter campaign for Runerunners, their new Prohibition-era fantasy board game.

From the website:

The year is 1921. Congress of the United Realms has just passed a new law banning the use of all destructive magics, and has placed bounties on all mystical artifacts.

Teams of Runerunners quickly formed to hunt down and collect these magical items, getting paid a hefty sum for retrieving them.

Government officials, merchant guilds, museum curators and black market mob bosses of Sanctuary City are trying to collect as many items as they can, offering jobs to teams of Runerunners.

This is where you come in! Form your team, grab the loot, and go get paid! Get in and get out fast, but watch out for other Runerunners, they won’t share bounties.
