Shadows Over Camelot is ana co-operative deduction board game based on the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. Each player takes on the role of such a Knight and it's
possible that someone plays as a traitor. All players try to fulfill quests. When quests are completed, then white swords are placed on the Round table. Failed quests place black swords.
The game is cooperative in that a shared victory or loss is possible in the absence of a traitor, and a traitor does not benefit by revealing himself too early. The endgame with a revealed traitor is, by contrast, a competitive game of asymmetric teams.
All players can get a shared victory when they are able to have a majority of white swords on the Round Table before Camelot falls.
But beware, one of the players pretend to be a loyal member but secretly he/she is hindering the others and waiting to strike hard at the worst possible moment. When he is revealed, the endgame with
asymmetric teams starts.
