Tile Laying board game based in Arthurian Camelot
Imagine you're a pretty successful sort of chap living in Arthurian Albion.
Into mosaics, tapestries, designer saddle bags - that sort of thing. You drink
in the right inns, cultivate the merchant classes and avoid noisy oiks with
swords, especially The Knights of the Round Table - a noxious bunch of hooligans
with personal hygiene issues and the collective IQ of a goldfish. All is going
swimmingly until one day Sir Bedevere stops you in the street.
'Ah! Citizen. Spare me a few minutes, I understand you're one of these
arty-farty types. A creative. Full of sneaky new ideas... Yes? There's no need
to try and shuffle off like that. No really, I've nothing against arty-farty
types. Some of my best friends were arty-farty types before Gawaine got to them.
So you hear me out and I'll keep Gawaine away from you. OK?
You see, King Arthur needs your help on some tricky domestic issues. No, not
Guinevere and her all night 'strategy meetings' with Lancelot or Merlin with his
silly hat and so-called magic. They're just background noise these days. No,
it's Camelot. You know, the castley thing on the hill.
His Mightiness has build the walls, but can't decide where everything should
go. Left to him, the bath house would be in the Great Hall and the Round Table
out in the garden. Domestic is not really his bag, and queenie is too busy
moping to get a grip. So do yourself a favour, old son, and turn up there
tomorrow to sort it all out for him. And bring a few of your mates with you.
If arty-farty types like you have mates, that is.'
That's blown it. It's sort out Camelot, or else. (Else
being the name of Gawaine's sword.)
