New Camelot Rulebook (Updated 8/14/17)

rulebookThe latest version of the rulebook can be found here. It’s possible the final version of the game will use a document instead depending on what I can afford with the manufacturer.

Update: I will use the same rule book for Crazier Eights: Camelot & Avelon — the one seen here. The manufacturer tells me it will save me money, and there’s no major reason to need a different one for each game. It will be geared for Camelot a bit more by using more card images for Avalon. Nonetheless, Avalon will have a unique rules card featuring cards from that set. Continue reading

New Rules Card

After working more with image rich versions of the rules, I decided I will change the rules card. It will be less in depth, but be better to look at. The rules document/rulebook will likely also have some more images.

The earlier rules card can be found here. I also updated the website’s rules page to have more images.

Go Fatherhood’s Review of Crazier Eights: Camelot

tiny-headDave Taylor of Go Fatherhood reviewed the game. Go here to take a look.

He concludes:

All in all, I’d say that Crazier Eights is definitely an interesting variation on Crazy Eights with more complexity and considerably more strategy required. Possibly imbalanced for just two players, you can play with up to four or add a second deck and play with up to eight people at the same time!

A New Way to Play

james-crazier-eights-001-smallCrazier Eights is a good game for developing house rules, or alternate ways to play. The newest idea I came up with hasn’t been highly tested and I think it will work better for Crazier Eights: Camelot and other newer versions.

Instead of playing up to one card for the effect and discarding up to one card during your turn:

  • Players each play two cards for an effect from his or her hand during his or her turn.

You only discard when a card says you may. All other rules are the same.

I wrote about house rules before here. Team play is now an official way to play.
