The Runelords is a hex-based skirmish board game for 1-4 players based in the world of the best-selling fantasy series by David Farland.
Choose from several game modes, then lead your recruits into battle bolstered by your Runelord's unique deck of Sovereignty cards. Each deck is filled with powerful equipment and game-changing tactic cards!
Want to double down on strategic gameplay? Combine up to four Runelord armies in our optional deck-building mode. Build your deck before battle and unlock countless combos on the battlefield. Build your army by gathering influence from your cards. Then spend it to purchase even more powerful cards for the battles still to come.
Our AI-driven adventures support solo and cooperative play. Each Adventure will have its own win conditions that will test even the most experienced player.
Each Runelord is battle-ready with 50 tarot-sized Sovereignty cards for use in combat. Each Runelord's cards are unique to their playstyle, meaning you'll still be finding new combos after dozens of games.
Choose from four different Runelords, each with their own unique army of recruits!
