Merlin’s Company – a Shadows over Camelot Expansion

sc.jpgThe swallows have long departed, replaced by sinister crows of dark omen. The land has grown more desolate, and travel ever more dangerous since a traitor was discovered in our midst. Rumor has it that Merlin himself is now scouring the plains around Camelot, rallying new knights to our cause. But will that prove enough to counter Morgan’s newly assembled coven of witches?

Merlin’s Company

Merlin’s Company is a new expansion for the popular Shadows over Camelot board game. It introduces a host of new characters – including 7 new knights and Merlin himself – to the Shadows over Camelot epic. The wise old wizard is now a full-blown independent character in the game, complete with his own figure. He travels the board lending guidance and a helping hand to the embattled knights.

Merlin’s Company also introduces 63 new cards: the all new Travel cards – events that may occur as you move from Quest to Quest; additional Black cards, including 7 witches allied with Morgan; and additional White cards that will help you and your fellow knights in your battles against the forces of evil.

A few cards from Merlin’s Company

The Merlin’s Company expansion, supports up to 8 players, including 2 possible Traitors, assuring that even the most innocuous Shadows over Camelot Quest will be filled with grave peril.

Evenings at the Round Table have never been more exciting than with Merlin’s Company – the new expansion for Shadows over Camelot!

This product is expected to begin shipping in early june in Europe and in early July in the USA.

    Are there any new gameboards that come with this…as in new locations to travel to or is it mostly a card expansion.

    Thanks!

    There are no additional quests. Yes there are over 60 new cards, but also new Knights with different special powers on their Coats of Arms, a new Merlin figure that moves to assist the knights on quests and a second Traitor card.

    Can we buy a painted Merlin to go along with all the other painted knights?

  6. Mark says:

    Rob,

    Merlin is not available as a painted figure. I guess its time to get out the brushes and paints (or if you are like me, find a friend who is much better at painting!)

    When will it be possible to pre-order the expansion?

  8. Mark says:

    Pre-orders in the online store will be available in mid-May.

  9. Eric says:

    The “Travel” cards are not new Quests, but a mechanism that gives a whole new twist to travels between them. You’re ain’t in Camelot anymore, Toto, as you will soon discover ;-)

  10. Have you considered to add new quests in a future expansion?

  11. Jesse says:

    Any hints about the price of this expansion? I didn’t see a price listed anywhere…maybe I just missed it. Thanks.

  12. Mark says:

    the price on the DOW web store will be $25. Prices in other game outlets will of course vary.

  13. James says:

    Will the game be available for sale at Gencon?

  14. Eric says:

    Yes (assuming you mean the US Gencon, not the French one, which is next week-end!)
