Good points. We usually play Talisman with between 6-9 people anyway so hopefully Relic will be similar. Although chances of finishing a game properly on a week night is low.
Off topic quick Q: has anyone ever won the full Dragon expansion in your games? We use all bar the Highlands and routinely get brutalised! Its whoever is the last alive wins those games! Not that we mind of course, wholesale hero slaughter is a sight to behold. Running for our lives, hoping to just to live that one turn longer and thus outlive our opponents that is a game in itself!
I can imagine Relic being the Dragon expansion but cranked up to 11 and the amused laughter of thirsting gods.
Happy times await!
