I wonder if this is the Drow game. Could also be a game of Fire & Ice, based on that Ralph Bakshi animated cartoon featuring Frank Frazetta's Death Dealer.

  1. Do you know how well the Knights of Camelot Boardgame was played?
    I have been thinking of making it bigger for the last 10 years. But not as elaborate as shown in the pictures 😛. Just bigger map with minis for players and monsters.
    I stopped when I tried playing the regular game with friends and they hated on how easily beginning players die. I’ve been doing it despite my friend’s dislike for the game.

    1. Douglas Waltman was the GM for the Knights of Camelot Game, He could give you better feedback than me, on his adjustments for the game. I just photograph what I see at the show and report on it, and can only run/play a very limited selection of games at the show due to my commitments as a volunteer staff member for the show.

    2. Hi. I hope the games were enjoyable for the players. Out of the 30 or so people who played, only 2 indicated that they had played before. One thing I will change for next time is to reduce the number of players from 6 down to 4. The 6 player games took quite a while to finish.

      I intend to come back to GaryCon in 2019.

      Truly,
      Douglas Waltman
