Review: Crazier Eights – Camelot

Review: Crazier Eights - Camelot

We’ve probably all had that moment.  You’re sitting there, playing Uno or Crazy Eights, and you realize, “Wow, I have absolutely NO influence on what’s happening here.”  You match the color or the number… and then you’re done. The most exciting it gets is a Wild Draw Four.

Crazier Eights: Camelot is much different from that. Now, not only do you match the same number, but you also make a specific opponent draw 3 cards. Not only do you use the wild to change the color, but you also add new possibilities for winning. What you get are games that are less based on luck, but instead based on the strategy, cunning, and downright cutthroat nature of the players.

Check out our video review of Crazier Eights: Camelot and see for yourself how this could be a good addition to your game nights.
