Shadows Over Camelot

Postby KG_Panzerschreck » Wed Jan 16, 2013 1:47 am

A great game by Days of Wonder, the same makers of Memoir 44, this game and its two expansions are a twist on the traditional style of game play. You dont play against each other. You play to beat the game itself. From what i undestand its about a 50/50 shot as to who wins. Especially as there is a good chance one of the knights of the round table is a traitor working to sabotage the rest of the knights! This is an amazing game that should be in every ones collection. Its in mine and it kills me i have no one to play it with. You need a minimum of three players. Everything about this game, like all Days of Wonder games, is top notch and very well made of great materials.

Here are some shots of my game and its components -

Stunning minis, High quality cards, Good and Evil Swords, Beautiful Wooden Dice

It is an amazing, beautiful piece of artwork in and of itself. As a game, it gets rave reviews everywhere.

You should DL the rules and check them out. Im sure you like it. Its not an entry level game like M'44, but its no Avalon Hill game either. Its an evenings gaming session time wise. Well worth it IMHO.

I own this one as well. It is a wonderfully produced game for sure. This is the kind of game you can get anyone to play. Great theme people are familiar with. It really uses simple cards with numbers for its core game play. Runs, sets, and the like. There are many other cards to break and bend the rules. Winning different parts of the boards "adventures" will win you white swords for the round table. The traitor mechanic adds to the fun, not knowing if the player next to you is working against the rest of the knights. Suspicion grows as the game nears conclusion.
Highly recommended.

I'm a huge Arturian fan so, this one may be right up my alley!
