Noah's best friend

Steve, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Steve taught us how to play "Shadows of Camelot." If you like Settlers of Catan and have an interest in King Arthur, you'll love this game. My favorite aspect of it is that the entire group who plays are cooperating to defeat the board. The idea is that the cards and the way the board is configured requires a group effort to go on quests and defeat them. So each time anyone triumphs, we all cheered because it was a group victory.

There is the possibility of a traitor which adds to the level of intrigue. Sort of like a player who "shoots the moon" in Hearts.

Game board is gorgeous and all miniatures are meticulously crafted.

We had such a good time!

This sounds great ~ definitely something we'll add to our repertoire in the future. I gave Settlers to Jan and Per this year, and they love it. It's nice that they're old enough now to do games that are great for adults, too.

Sounds like a great game. My oldest son and I used to play a lot of Settlers. I like that second shot a lot.
