Customer Reviews

Excellent expansion to Shadows over Camelot.
Amazon Customer
It adds a lot of variables like movement cards and the help of Merlin which can change the game in your favor.
M. Perry
This game is very intriguing and much more challenging, which is good.

Adding an extra player and traitor is good! But the game is much harder - which may satisfy many players.

This is an extension to the Shadows Over Camelot. It was well worth the price I paid. The new cards are wonderful and add a new twist on the game. The black cards are even more deadly to the game and the white cards WOW they are amazing.

The graphics and durability are what I have come to enjoy with any of the Days of Wonder games.

I hope that you can enjoy this extension of Shadows Over Camelot as much as I did and don't forget you need the original Shadows Over Camelot to use the extension game.

This expansion is good, but not indispensable. The travel cards ramp up the tension and difficulty early game, and Merlin just sufficiently compensates for this. Essentially Merlin serves as a card fountain if you visit the same quest that he is currently occupying. Getting Merlin to the Grail or Excalibur can funnel a lot of free cards into your knights hands and build up a formidable level of power in the late game.

Our games with this expansion so far have felt more challenging in the early game, and less challenging if you make it past the hump. You will lose early or win handily late. A clever traitor can, however really exploit they new problems this expansion presents and alter the difficulty curve.

We have not played an 8 player game with two traitor cards, but based on my familiarity with the game's balance I can say this would be a very difficult and challenging setup.

In particular the new witches are each dangerous and feel like mini Morgana cards, and the new special white cards are all pretty useful and sufficiently varied.

The new knight abilities are generally in line with the old ones power wise, with one exception that feels stronger, however I don't think it's game-breakingly overpowered like some of the other reviews state. If you think it's too good, ban it, or nerf it, it's YOUR game, and you're not playing it in a tournament.

Let me start out by saying how much I enjoyed Shadows over Camelot. The game was with it flaws, and at times really easy, but it was still a fun way to introduce people to the wonderful world of co-op games.
That being said, I purchased this expansion because the game had simply become to easy. I read some other reviews about this making it a much harder game.
It has succeeded. I enjoy a game where I play it and I have to fight for the win. Its not just handed over to me, or a brief moment of the game. I enjoy a hard fought victory that we had to endure through the entire game.
Merlin is introduced and he is there to help you, trying to get him where he is needed to help combat any of the witches cards that may arise.
The witches add a new element to the game. Their cards are just nasty! You shudder when a friend turns it over and reads it, which to me makes the game all the more enjoyable.
So if you are looking to increase the difficulty of the game, grab this expansion, you will not be disappointed.

If you already enjoy Shadows Over Camelot, then this expansion will give you some new knights and possibly a tougher challenge (to an already pretty tough game, unless you regularly have 6 players). If you own Shadows, but were disappointed with it, then this expansion probably won't make the game any more enjoyable, so save your money.

Sir Bedivere is very useful, and can be a great addition to your company of knights, but I was underwhelmed with some of the other knights' abilities. The travel deck offers a new layer of challenge, but I would have preferred to have a new quest board added instead. It adds more deadly black cards, powerful white cards, and a Merlin figure that can join you on a quest, which is an essential addition to the Camelot theme.

I'd have given this expansion a higher rating if I thought it would make people give this game another chance if it's just sitting on their shelves. I don't think this expansion provides that, but if it's already in your rotation, then you definitely want to throw these new cards and characters into the mix.

Days of Wonder Shadows Over Camelot is one of my favorite games and the best co-op board game available. Merlin's Company completely fleshes it out and adds more difficulty, strategy, balance, and fun to the original masterpiece. Definately a must-own for any fan of the original. Expansion adds more powerful white and black cards along with new travel cards and a Merlin character. 8 or 9 new knights are also included, each with a new special ability (duplicate colors of the original knights and two new orange knights). I should also note that there is a fan-based Monty Python theme available for download at boardgamegeek.com.

I find this expansion continues to scale up both the difficulty (specifically in traveling) and the player benefits (with Merlin).

The new knights are well written with decent abilities. Merlin traveling to quests is a good new mechanic.

I think this maintains a good game balance and opens the game up to more players.
