WizKids returns to the world of Arthurian legend with Tournament at Avalon, a companion game for 2017’s Tournament at Camelot, set to release in February.

Like the original game (see “Arthurian Knights Battle for Glory in New WizKids Game”), Tournament at Avalon is a trick-taking card game in which the players assume the role of knights competing in a tournament to prove which is the mightiest.  Players use weapon cards to battle their opponents, trying to injure them.  When one player is injured too severely, the game ends and the least injured player wins.

The new version of the game, created by the same design team as the original, introduces the enchantress Morgan Le Fay and opens a new strategy for the players, who can now use diplomacy and alliances in addition to combat to further their plans.  It also includes a number of new locations which award benefits to the player hosting the tournament.

Tournament at Avalon is a stand-alone game, but it can be combined with Tournament at Camelot.  Players can mix and match cards from the two sets, or combine both games together to play the “Chaos of Battle” variant, which can include up to eight players.

The game comes with 139 cards, 5 tokens, and 5 location panels.  It is intended for 3 to 6 players, ages 14 and up, and takes about 45 minutes to play.  MSRP is $24.99.
