3-6 Players
Designed by Tom Jolly
Published by Wingnut Games


In Camelot, players vie for control of Excalibur. Each player controls five Arthurs and a host of other Arthurian characters in a heated attempt to grab and retrieve the sword before any other player succeeds in this task.

On the surface, the game appears to be a very simple wargame, combat being quickly resolved without any dice as characters fight each other. The key to the game, however, is that two players are always taking turns at the same time, the turns being regulated by "turn tokens" that pass around the board. When one player finishes his or her turn, the turn-token is passed to the next player who does not already have one. If one player is a slowpoke taking his turn, then the other turn-token passes around the table, allowing other players to take turns. This forces players to take very fast turns, usually about 5 seconds each, allowing the game to move along with the intensity of a video game. Games usually take 20 to 30 minutes to play, even with three to six players.

Special rules resolve potential conflicts that could occur when two players try to perform actions simultaneously where priority is in question, resolving quickly and simply.

No player ever quite gets knocked out of the game due to loss of characters; Arthurs always "rejuvenate", returning to your pile of pieces (your "village") that can enter the board. Characters start at a chosen entry space at the edge of the board, and move to the center to grab Excalibur, returning the Sword to their entry space to win. Each of the 5 character-types (Merlin, Lancelot, etc) have their own unique abilities, but everyone starts with an identical set of pieces.

There are also two variants in the rules, allowing players to vary the game by going after the "Accoutrements of Kingship" instead of the Sword, or by gathering a number of gold pieces scattered around the board so as to "buy the kingship". Tokens are included for these variants.

The game is very intense and fast, requiring players to think on their feet and make fast realtime decisions; if you are a big fan of slow, deep thinking, strategy games, you might look elsewhere.

JACKIE

I want to warn you, in case the dour trailer did not fully convey or you didn't watch it, this movie is not about the relationship between John and Jackie. This movie is entirely about Jackie's grief after the assassination, and how she carries on, organizing the funeral procession and coming to terms about her life without him.

This is not a romantic movie, nor a complete drama, but just a very focused acting vehicle for Natalie Portman to showcase her many thespian degrees of sadness, repressed anger and total grief.

I give it a 5 out of 10.

It is not a bad movie, but it is not a fun movie, at all, as it just goes over and over the same stuff, to the point of disinterest.

It was also a bit odd to see Peter Sarsgaard playing a good guy role as Bobby Kennedy, as he tends to take really sadistic, evil roles and dial up their intensity. It is hard to believe him as anything but that.

Glad to see one of John Hurt's final acting roles, as the priest Jackie talks to, but the dialogue and hyper camera close-ups (the movie is artsy like that) are so contrived, it is not enough of a dramatic treat to enjoy.

I do not recommend it. It is not horrible, but it wasn't worth its demanded time.

30 minutes.

Tom Jolly--you know, Wiz War Tom Jolly--using the Lightning System (TM), where there are two it's-your-turn markers, and at the end of your turn, you pass the marker to the first player on your left who doesn't have one... so if you're playing too slowly, you just get skipped.
