An unladen swallow flies across the gray skies of Brittany... The forces of Evil are gathering around Camelot - The Black Knight was sighted atop a desolate ridge; a scheming Morgan plots her revenge; Saxon troops are on the move; and acres of timber are being felled for the Siege Engines. Lancelot has all but vanished, Excalibur is still to be recovered, and the Holy Grail remains just a Legend. These are troubling times indeed... Will you, young Squire, come forth and pledge allegiance to your fellow Knights at the Round Table? Is your heart pure of intent and ready to sacrifice for the good of all? Or will the dark promise of power seduce you into treason?

Shadows over Camelot is a unique collaborative game featuring a malevolent twist! As the incarnation of the Knights of the Round Table, you join forces against the game itself in an attempt to protect Camelot. But beware... all is not as it seems among these noble Knights. One of your number might yet turn out to be a traitor-in-waiting, biding his time while sowing havoc and destruction from the Shadows!

Featuring a richly illustrated gameboard of Camelot and its surroundings, finely carved miniatures of the Knights and their foes, and seven Quests to embark upon - shadows over Camelot is your gateway to many a memorable game night among friends.

* 1 Master gameboard of Camelot
* 3 double-sided Quest boards
* 30 miniatures of the Knights and their foes
* 168 character, event and loyalty cards
* 7 Coats of Arms & 8 dice
* 16 Swords of the Round Table
* 1 Rules booklet
* 1 Book of Quests

Reviews Review Game
By Nerotu From West Midlands in United Kingdom
Thia game is often brought to the table. Its a great cooperative game but with a possible traitor. It'd hard enough without the traitor as player need to complete quests such as the grail quest, fight against the picts or saxons among other quests. But before you start your turn you must advance evil so you must either lose a life (players start with 4 lives) or chose to turn over the black card. The black cards are usually despair for the grail quest add a pict or saxon to the fight, the Excalibur sword moves one space away from the finishing line or add a seige engine out. This game is a lot of fun and quite stressful as you need to be at two places at once which is impossible to do. This game is a must have in your collect. In my opinion its much better than the card game. The boards look great and the miniatures would look great when painted.

Played this for the first time last nite and have to say i now plan to buy it. excellent game. we played as a 4 without the traitor. co-operative aspect of the game with the 4 os us playing against the game worked very well and we managed to 'win' reasonably easily. not to long a game either. took about 80 mins including have the rules explained to us. will play with the traitor next time to see how having someone supposedly playing on your side but in actual fact tying to make you all lose makes a difference to the gameplay. very good quality board and pieces.

Played this game for the first time the other night and it is great.

This is a game very much like Lord of the Rings in that it is the players against the game. Having said that, in my opinion it is a lot better. The turns move quicker, there is a lot more stratergy to it and the team play really works well.

I am yet to play it with a traitor but plan to very soon. This is a game I can see me playing quite a lot.
