...it would compete with Talisman, which Fantasy Flight also makes. I doubt Fantasy Flight thinks Runebound is a bad game to reprint. I think they just want Talisman to finish.


They stopped making Runebound two years after they started Talisman, and have focused on Talisman alone for four years.


Talisman is either already finished with The Woodland, or it is close to finishing (perhaps another small and big box expansion). Either way, they do not need to have Talisman completely finished to announce a new Runebound; it just has to be close to ending.


Similarly they might not have released any new expansions for Runewars because they just introduced a competitor: BattleLore 2. They will probably see which game sells better, then kill one and focus on the other.


This is all just speculation of course.

But if I'm right, we could see a new Runebound announcement sometime soon.


A third edition of Runebound would really be amazing. Think about all that Fantasy Flight has learned from Talisman. They would make Runebound 3 ridiculously good.

You may be on to something there. I doubt RB would have fallen under GW's "non-compete" clause in their partnership, being a pre-existing product, but they may well have decided two fantasy wanderlust games was too many.
