A 54-Card Deck and Rulebook

Journey into the days of yore, where knights searched for greatness, magic was ever-present, and destiny was just a moment away. This medieval-themed card deck, full of stunning illustrations detailing the characters of King Arthur and his court, invites players to enjoy two medieval card games and try their hand at Cartomancy, a style of fortune telling. Look to the past to find your future with Cards of Camelot.  

King Arthur has a legacy, stretching across history and literature, as it's interpreted and reinterpreted by new generations of storytellers. Cards of Camelot introduces the stories of King Arthur to people in a way that encourages play through storytelling, luscious illustration, and actual gameplay. Readers will be able to play in the world of Arthur by themselves or in a group, whether they're playing:

This box includes 55 beautifully illustrated cards and a 64-page guide book.

With gorgeous illustrations that illuminate the key players in Arthurian legend, plus stories and game instructions narrated by Merlin himself, Cards of Camelot will inspire players to find their fate and have plenty of fun along the way.
