Knight’s Quest conjures tales of Dragons, Fair Maidens, and Brave Knights in an easy-to-learn family fun game right out of the box!


YOU MAY HAVE MISSED OUR KICKSTARTER WHEN IT WAS ACTIVE, BUT STOP BY OUR FACEBOOK PAGE TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON 
https://www.facebook.com/KenWhitmanGames


Knight's Quest is easy to learn, with players themselves providing plenty of twists and turns along the way. Be the first to play every card from your hand by matching the color or number of the previous card. Use Joust, Dragons, Wizards, Companions, and other special cards to improve your chances of winning!

Knight's Quest is a standalone card game for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up. You can play a game in 30 minutes or less—short enough to play while waiting for that monster board game to get set up. Knight's Quest is designed for lovers of classic card games like Crazy 8's, with gorgeous artwork by renowned fantasy artist Jeff Easley, and rising-star illustrator Peter Bradley.

Knight's Quest is a brainchild of Ken Whitman, who also designed card-game favorites like Groo: The Game, The Three Stooges, and SnarfQuest

With your support, we can launch a premium-quality print run for Knight’s Quest. The Standard Edition level ($20) offers the full game (with free shipping in the U.S.) at $5 less than the expected retail price, while higher pledge levels offer awesome bonus cards to up the chaos beyond max!

Basic Rules can be found at the bottom of the page.

KING'S EDITION - A limited edition of the Knight’s Quest game packaged in a fancy wooden box, along with REAL metal coins. This also comes with a Standard Edition set.

Master fantasy artist Jeff Easley (AD&D, Dragonlance, Magic: The Gathering) rendered the cover, with up-and-coming Peter Bradley providing the card images.

If we meet certain finical goals, we will be able to upgrade the game.  So please let you friends know about our game!

Risks and challenges

Knight's Quest is already completely designed, playtested, illustrated, and set for production. Ken Whitman has been bringing toys and games to market for 25 years, and our manufacturing partner, Panda Games, has been producing top-quality board and card games since 2007. While we cannot promise delay-free printing or flawless shipping as we control neither the printing press nor the US Postal Service, we do have the expertise to mitigate these and other unforeseen problems to make your pledge the best experience it can possibly be.

FAQ

  • A. I love King's Court, and yes this game plays homage to it. However, there are two big differences. Our game uses coins to keep track of the game and we have include rules for playing combos (several cards at once). Also, there are magic spells.

    Last updated:
  • A. They are almost the same, except that the first one (that is sold out) did not allow the product to be shipped outside of the USA. :-(

    Because Kickstarter won't allow us to fix it after someone bought the package, we closed it out and added in the proper details.
