Crazier Eights: Camelot (Fantasy Card Game)

$2,257

98

 

You can go here to preorder the game.

Fun for gamers & easy for non-gamers!

Queen Guinevere, the Holy Grail, Avalon, and many other cards from the world of King Arthur can help you win by getting zero cars in hand first. Crazier Eights: Camelot is the Arhturian-themed version of Crazier Eights.

Crazier Eights offers the fun card abilities and interactions that are ordinarily only found in much more complicated card games. It's a stand alone deck that can be played by 2-4 players. The abilities are inspired by what the card represents and they help you develop your own story.

I am working on several versions of Crazier Eights and they will all be compatible from this point on.

Every reward worth $14 or more is a physical version of the game. Every reward also comes with the print & play version.

 This is a game that can bring gamers together with their family and friends.

Stretch goals become available as I reach the specified funding. With enough funding, another promo card will become available.

More info & image of Avalon expansion cards can be found here.

Every copy of the game given as a Kickstarter reward will come with this promo card. I will also give them out for other promotional reasons. It will not be reprinted for at least a year. If it is reprinted, it will have new art. 

  • The Rulebook can be found here. (The final version could have a rules document instead depending on funding.)
  • Two Gun Pixie has a more in depth how to play video here.
  • The Kickstarter video above has a play through of the game.

Also, check out this play through of an older prototype:

Review by the Kwarenteen

(Video) "It's outstanding, I cannot recommend this game enough."

Review by Two Gun Pixie

(Video) "I think this is a great gateway game. I think this is a great family game... but it's not tied to just being a family game... this is a game any tabletop gamer... can definitely get into." Also, see his text review here.

Review by Michael Wright (Unfiltered Gamer)

(Video) "After playing this game we played it over and over... a lot of people love this game in my game group..." He later added: "It's great! Can't tell you how many additional playthroughs I forced my fiancee and friends to play after the review was finished."

Review by Daniel Robinson/Plumpy Thimble

(Video) "It's incredible how well all these paintings work with the theme of the gain and each specific card... You've got this fifteen minute gain that is very easy to explain and pretty darn fun to play."

Paid Review by the Undead Viking 

(Video) "It's one of those perfect filler games... I brought it to my recent family reunion. Everybody there loved it. The game is just straightforward, it's fun, it's challenging, it's got great art, it has a simple rules set..."

Review by One Board Family

(video) "This takes the simple concept of Uno... but adds to it. There's now some strategy involved. You have to think about your moves."

Review by Board Games & Bourbon

(Video) "Is the game something you want? You have to ask yourself how much time do you want to spend on a game... If you want something where you're spending more time deliberating what to do, this might be for you."

Review by I Teach Her, She Wins

(Video) "Great game, it can be as simple as you want it, as complicated as you want it, changes with time like a good red wine."

Review by Benjamin David

(Video) "Crazier Eights is a simple little card game. I can see it working best with those new to gaming or perhaps middle schoolers as it's obviously better than round after round of Uno."

Critique par Inod (French)

(Text) Critique de Crazier Eights: Camelot par Ino.

Review by Frank Grip

(Text) "...the game has a very professional and [it has an] aesthetic appearance. The card art is colorful, thematic, and appealing. Many card games seem repetitive and one-dimensional. This is not one of them."

Review by Mark Meredith

(Text) "Where the game really shines is that once you have multiple assets out on the table, keeping an eye on all of the ongoing effects changes the game dramatically. It feels a bit like Fluxx at this point..."

Review by Andrew Smith

(Text) "Crazier Eights: Camelot is a good game with unique content, while tapping into some of same mechanics and elements other games use with success. It’s easy to learn and teach, quick to play, and fun. I recommend it for kids and adults looking for a game that uses some planning and strategy..."

Review by Go Fatherhood

(Text) "All in all, I’d say that Crazier Eights is definitely an interesting variation on Crazy Eights with more complexity and considerably more strategy required. Possibly imbalanced for just two players, you can play with up to four or add a second deck and play with up to eight people at the same time!"

Review by Dad Mostly Loses

(Text) ""This ame seriously took me by surprise. At first it seemed like it was just going to be a straight forward race to get down to zero cards but as the game developed there were more paths to victory and you needed to watch very carefully what cards your opponent had played. Also the art is incredible. Very solid game."

Review by Fairway 3 Games

(Text) “Camelot definitely takes the Crazy Eights game and makes it crazier. The nicely integrated art is welcome. And by introducing Fluxx-like rules changes and new sets of powers and effects, Crazier Eights will definitely appeal to fans of Fluxx-like games and to those who enjoy Crazy Eights but want some more strategy.”

Review by Timothy Mattes

(text) "I personally am excited that this game was created and presented to the industry and I feel that the industry as a whole will be remiss to overlook this title."

Review by Throat Punch Games

(text) "I like its simple nature, the rules work well, and the art and theme tie things together. It’s not perfect, but the flaws are few and far between. I think the Fluxx comparison is a good one. It doesn’t have the humor of Fluxx, but the serious art drives home the theme and keeps me in the game." He gave the game a 92% overall!

These add-ons are available with any reward in the USA. If you are outside of the USA, you must have a reward worth $14 or more to use an add-on, and you must add $25 shipping to add one or more jumbo version of the game.

You may not get more than ten of any type of reward, such as ten copies of Crazier Eights: Camelot.

Jumbo deck

The jumbo deck is a promotional offer. It's the same game, but the cards are more than twice as large. This will have a very small print run and they are only available on Kickstarter and for other promotions. Any promo cards or expansions given as stretch goals will be added to the jumbo version as well.

Shipping costs

Shipping is going to cost me more than what you pay here. If you are in the USA, shipping is included at no additional cost.

Shipping overseas can cost over $14 for the regular version, but I will only charge you $11. (You pay only $6 for the regular version in Canada.)

What's Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is crowd funding. This is your chance to help make a dream a reality and get rewarded for doing so.

If you make a pledge, you choose a reward. When the game is funded (has $2,000 of pledges), you will pay for the reward. The game is scheduled to be released by October 2017.

If the game does not get $2,000 by the end date, I will not have enough to fund manufacturing. In that case no one will be charged any money.

Money back guarantee

You will enjoy the game, or you can return it within two months of delivery for a full refund.

Website

The main website for Crazier Eights is at Craziereights.com.

Risks and challenges

I depend on some third parties -- such as the manufacturer and postal service. I can't guarantee that no unforeseen problems arise from them. I will do what I can to overcome obstacles, such as sending a second package when one is lost in the mail.

The funding goal does not cover all the shipping charges, and I am willing to pay out of pocket if necessary.
