Another 'card game that plays like a boardgame' from Adlung, publisher of similar games like Verrater. A quite good game with a knights of Camelot theme. A steal for such a low price. The graphic design deserves special mention - it is excellent.

Played once, had a good time. The game seemed very constrained at first, but it opened up once people started moving out of Camelot.

Lorenz Kutshcke. 2-4.

Rating based on one play with 2 players. The game is a lot tighter than I expected. It definitely has a strong boardgame feel to it despite being a card game. Nice art, nice setup and a lot tougher decisions than I expected from it. My son (the big fan of knights in general) thought it was great.

Liked it. But it seemed pretty tough with four players. The theme is great, though.

Update: Bumped up to an 8 from a 6, after playing with 2 players, rather than 4. 4 was frustrating. 2 was nice and thematic, but a bit too easy. I think 3 might be the sweet spot.

This one is really interesting : some planning is needed, combinated with tactical decisions. Looks like this could be another decent Adlung game next to Meuterer, Zauberschwert and Vom Kap. The games are very close and the tension is enlarged by the fact that you can't really do a lot with only 3 actions.

3 plays. This will probably go to an 8 because it is a nice, solid game.

There may be a problem with quest hoarding. Or any hording for that matter. But my sons and I are too polite to play like that. LOL.

Just two plays, but it already impresses as the type of game I'd like. It is a touch fiddly, though, as you push cards all around the table. I'm OK with that, but others may not be.

A nice little game with a very strong theme. We play with 2 players which goes quickly. You need to plan out your entire turn (4 moves when playing with 2) at one time, sort of like in Elfenland. The rules are much clearer than most Adlung games; the artwork is also nicer.

I'm surprised that I hadn't heard anything about this game. This is a wonderful light and quick version of some of the older clunkier King Arthur games. Lots of color, great sense of advancement, with fun quests and tournaments. Overall, this captures the theme well and offers a nice variety of options without getting bogged down by many of the details that the older games suffered from. I suspect that my ratings will go up.

Played a few times (with 4 players). A very nice little game, which manages to do more with 60 cards than some real board games. It is rather light, but there are interesting decisions and choices to be made.

I think this is a great little game. I have only played once with 2 players. I took out the cards, and then set the game up. That's easier said than done because the tiny reference cards and minuscule instruction text does not make that easy. After setting the game up, I felt I needed a break, and eventually had to push to get the game played. If I put the game away without playing it, it might not have come out again. Fortunately, this game shares something other than a publisher with Meuterer because once you get past the overly complex instructions, there is a basically good, simple game here. I really like the questing and training mechanic, and like how it feels like you are always just short of getting the most out of each turn. I lean toward giving it a slightly higher rating, but then I think about having to read the setup instructions again, and the rating comes right back down again. I need a good setup and play guide!

Interesting choices and a fairly good theme (jousting, quests, etc). Definitely plays like a board game. After reading the rules I thought the game would be too chaotic but it's suprisingly elegant. Decent with two but seemed almost too equal (each player should score about the same number of points each round) would recommend 3 or 4 players, to make scoring more difficult and to add tougher decision-making.

This is as rich in theme as Zauberschwert is dry! I've only played 2-player games. I hope to play it again with more players!

I'd like to create a Star Wars edition of this. (my nephews would like that very much...) Jedi Knights, the Jedi Temple as Camelot, planets with quests, Laserswords and the Force as skills, different types of spacecraft as horses etc.

Continues the Adlung tradition of big games in small boxes. Apparently, it works better with three than with two players.
Played twice.

Finally played this after owning it for two years. I love Camelot and knights, so I'm pretty much a sucker for any game that purports to implement that theme. However, this little six-dollar pack of cards really packs a punch. It's a race to get to a certain number of points (depending on the number of players) by winning tournaments, spreading knowledge to the country folk, and fulfilling quests. First, you have to decide if you're going to go for scoring fewer points more often (tournaments and peasant-teaching) or if you're going to save up for the more infrequent but bigger points (quests). Then, not only do you have to plan your moves as efficiently as possible (you get three actions per turn) and be able to quickly reroute when someone takes the action card you needed, but you also have to keep an eye on your opponents and decide if it's better to take an action to block them instead of doing something to further your own cause. A good, medium-weight filler with stuff to think about. Also, it's just a deck of cards, so it's a good travel game (though you need a fair amount of space to set up the "board"). Can't wait to get it to the table again.

UPDATE: Played it again, this time with four players. I still liked it, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much this time. I think it's a little too tight with four players. I liked better it with three--seemed like there were more choices. I'd like to try it with two sometime. Also, I think I like it better as a warm-up game than as a winding-down game.

A truly interesting game full of subtleties. It requires a few plays to really be appreciated.
Ohh yes, and it fits in your pocket for about the same price as a box of cigarettes. So quit smoking and buy a copy of this instead.
