============
 
The Reliquary Collection is our very first product line. We scoured the world to bring you the very best archaic and authentic games the world has to offer. Each one features a classic play style that is original and doesn't rely on marketing images to be fun. The collection is varied enough to provide a favorite for everyone and each game is conveniently packaged in a truly unique way.

Check out some independent, unpaid reviews for The Reliquary Collection:

All of the games in the Reliquary Collection are family friendly, non-violent, and suitable for all ages (there is a choking hazard for very young children). While there is a suggested age for each game, anyone can enjoy them so long as they understand the rules. Most of the Reliquary Collection games involve new ways to stretch your mind and challenge your strategic prowess, making them great educational tools as well as being extremely fun for everyone!

Each game is presented in a suede leather pouch that unfolds to reveal a beautifully etched game board and natural marble playing pieces. Some of the games feature "lots", which are two-sided dice made of solid wood. The rule booklets are made of an extremely durable composite paper laced onto the satin draw-string. 

Collector's editions are also available in both 6 and 12 game sets. They are packaged in a numbered, dated, branded wooden box that provides a stylish place to keep your favorite games safe while on display. These are Limited Edition boxes, which include space for you to add 100 characters of your choice, making your box completely unique and personalized!

The compact take-anywhere / play-anywhere format ensures that your new games will always be accessible. The natural materials make these games stand out and are sure to be noticed. The patterns and imperfections that nature has left on each piece and board add beauty and authenticity and also guarantee that each copy is unique.
