Days of Wonder has announced the October release of Shadows Over Camelot: The Card Game
, which is based on the 2005 Shadows Over Camelot
cooperative board game. The new Shadows Over Camelot: The Card Game
(MSRP $25), follows in the footsteps of the original game as players work together to defend Camelot against rumors spreading around the kingdom.
The new Shadows Over Camelot card game is a fast-paced, stand-alone game for players ages 8 and up, which can be played solo or by 2-7 players. It takes just 20 minutes to play a typical game as players take on the roles of the sons and daughters of the legendary Knights of the Round Table. They must unite to overcome the threats to Camelot represented by a deck of Rumor cards, but they must be careful of the traitors in their midst.

Bruno Cathala, who designed both the original board game and the new card game with Serge Laget, explains the nature of the new game: "Shadows over Camelot
holds a special place for co-designer Serge Laget and me. We worked many hours on a game design which, while using the same basic mechanisms (cooperative, quests, and traitors...), would bring a new, very different, game experience. Only recently did it become a refined card game, with an all new twist based on observation. In the end it’s very different from the board game, while still keeping the basic elements that made the original Shadows over Camelot
such a success."
Shadows Over Camelot: The Card Game includes a deck of 62 Rumor Cards, 9 Knight Cards, 9 Loyalty Cards, 10 Quest Tokens, and 16 double-sided (black and white) swords.
