Wizkids has announced that their newest game, Lancelot, originally published in 2017, is finally available to North American customers.
Licensed from Ergo Ludo Editions, Lancelot is a game that takes place in the world of King Arthur, where players are trying to amass more virtue points than any of the other players.
“In the Court of King Arthur, you are the Knights that prove their individual valor by performing heroic deeds, setting out on the quest for the Grail, and obtaining the Knightly Virtues…The goal? To be elected First Knight – Lancelot – he who will steal the heart of Queen Guinevere.”
Players move around the board, visiting certain locations to gain items or complete quests that will help them gain virtue. Each time around the board is one round, with the game ending after seven rounds.
You can move around the board at your own pace, but keep in mind that you are all racing for points, so don’t dawdle too much.
The winner of the game will be called Lancelot, with all the benefits that entails.
Those who have been anxiously awaiting this game in North America can finally pick it up without importing it.
Wizkids games has announced plans for an October release of their new Lancelot game.
Attempting to prove their worth in the Court of King Arthur, players take on the roles of the Knights of the Round Table and perform heroic deeds, quest for the Grail and obtain various Knightly Virtues all with the goal to be elected First Knight – Lancelot. Eventually as Lancelot you might even steal the heart of Queen Guinevere!
Undeterred by the recent global flop of a movie that was King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Wizkids will have you traveling to the land of ancient Britain to defeat enemy knights. Success when meeting the Lady of the Lake and she will gift you with the legendary Excalibur. Even with Excalibur in your hands and Merlin at your side, your enemy Morgana will still be a fearsome foe.
Though little information is out, we know you move pieces at your own pace but falling behind will have others grabbing the resources necessary to be successful in the game.
