Crazier Eights: Camelot Information

camelot cards5Crazier Eights: Camelot is a stand alone version of Crazier Eights, an easy fantasy card game. It has a theme inspired by the stories of King Arthur. It has 52 cards, enough for a four player game.  (Retail price: $15.)

There are several cards inspired by the King Arthur stories, such as Queen Guinevere, Merlin, and Mordred, the enemy of King Arthur.

Crazier Eights is a gateway fantasy card game similar in some ways to Crazy Eights. The first player with zero cards in hand wins. Additionally, every card may be played for an ability. The abilities are creative and interesting. They are ultimately based on what the card represents, and they are similar to those found in much more complex fantasy card games.

Crazier Eights: Camelot is estimated to  be released on October 20th, 2017.

Check out the cards here & you can see the rules here.

You can see an entertaining three minute play through video here.

You can pre-order it here. Continue reading

Crazier Eights: Camelot Samples

I sent them the files needed to make the games. There was a problem with the box templates that I used, but I think I fixed the files.
