“Tournament at Avalon” is a standalone trick-taking and combat card game designed by Karen Boginski, Jody Barbessi, and Kenneth C. Shannon Jr. It was published by WizKids and released in 2018.
The game is set in the Arthurian legend, where players take on the roles of knights competing in a tournament in the kingdom of Avalon. Each player is dealt a character card with unique abilities, and they use a deck of cards to attack opponents, defend themselves, and manipulate the game in various ways.
The gameplay revolves around traditional trick-taking mechanics, where players play cards of different suits and strengths, trying to win tricks and avoid certain cards that can lead to damage or negative effects. However, “Tournament at Avalon” adds a combat element, as players can eliminate opponents from the game by reducing their health to zero.
One notable feature of the game is that when a player is eliminated, they become a “Ghost,” and they continue to influence the game by playing special ghost cards, affecting the remaining players’ actions.
“Tournament at Avalon” has been praised for its thematic integration, engaging gameplay, and the twist it adds to the traditional trick-taking genre. It accommodates 3 to 6 players and is designed for ages 14 and up.
If you enjoy trick-taking games with a twist and appreciate the Arthurian theme, “Tournament at Avalon” might be a great addition to your board game collection. As always, I recommend checking reviews and gameplay videos to get a better understanding of the game before making a purchase.
