Overview

Quest for the Grail is an out-of-print collectible card game (CCG) by Horizon Games and Stone Ring in 1995.

The game was released in with two editions:

  • The Preview Edition, which consisted of 126 cards;
  • The Limited Edition that was released in December 1995 and consisted of 280 cards.

An expansion named Knights of the Isle, based on Scottish and Irish elements, was scheduled for release in April 1996 but never materialized.

Gameplay

This CCG is based on Arthurian legend, with elements of Monty Python (although it preceded the Monty Python and the Holy Grail CCG released in June 1996.)

Each player divides their cards into two decks:

The Court deck contains Kings, Knights, Rewards, Events, Domains, and Companions. The Quest Deck has missions and encounters.

To complete a quest, each player deploys Knights and Kings to search for equipment and spells that will aid in the quest. Successful completion of a Quest earns Valor points. Any knight or King who earn 12 or more Valor may attempt to find the Grail by completing three Quests in the same turn, winning the game.
