Stitched Up: Relics (part 2)

Following on from the first part of the article looking at the rules and miniatures, we ran a demo game to give you a bit more of an idea how Tor Gaming’s Relics plays out.  Click on any of the thumbnails for a larger version of each picture. Setting Up We used two of the Starter in a Can sets – Britanans versus Orcnar.  Both come out at around 150 points.  One thing to note is that (unless we somehow missed it entirely)...

Stitched Up: Relics

Epsom Games Club is held at the Royal British Legion, in Epsom, and when I arrived, it was nice to see there was loads of space, about 15 people there around 4 tables. My initial welcome was cautious and I immediately realised this was due to the fact that all the big games had JUST got...
