Shadows Over Camelot

Shadows Over Camelot is an Arthurian-themed board game designed by Serge Laget and Bruno Cathala. The game was also published in French as Les Chevaliers de la Table Ronde and in German as Schatten ├╝ber Camelot. Players take on the roles of Knights of the Round Table (with the possibility that one player takes the role of traitor) and play the game by fulfilling quests. The game is cooperative in that a shared victory or loss is possible in the absence of a traitor, and a traitor does not benefit by revealing himself too early. The endgame with a revealed traitor is, by contrast, a competitive game of asymmetric teams.

The game was unveiled by the publishers Days of Wonder at the 2005 American International Toy Fair and was more widely released in May and June 2005.

In 2008, an expansion for Shadows over Camelot was released titled Merlin's Company.

Famous quotes containing the words shadows over, camelot and/or shadows:

    Love’s heralds should be thoughts,
    Which ten times faster glides than the sun’s beams,
    Driving back shadows over low’ring hills.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Ask every person if he’s heard the story,
    And tell it strong and clear if he has not,
    That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory
    Called Camelot ...
    Don’t let it be forgot
    That once there was a spot
    For one brief shining moment that was known
    As Camelot.
    Alan Jay Lerner (1918–1986)

    Billie Holiday’s burned voice
    had as many shadows as lights,
    a mournful candelabra against a sleek piano,
    the gardenia her signature under that ruined face.
    If you can’t be free, be a mystery.
    Rita Dove (b. 1952)
