Richard Garfield's Carnival of Monsters

No Comments

This fast-playing card-drafting game challenges 2 to 5 players to hunt and collect the most dangerous monsters of myth and legend.

Richard Garfield’s Carnival of Monsters combines card drafting and set collecting for a game experience that is at once familiar and refreshingly new. 2 to 5 players begin with a small number of Lands, which they can use to play Monsters. At the beginning of each of the game’s four Seasons, each player is dealt eight cards—which can include more Lands, Monsters, or other cards they might be able to use to improve their carnival. A normal game takes around 45 minutes and we suggest players to be age 10 or older.

At the same time, all players choose one card to keep, passing the rest to their neighbor. You can play your chosen card immediately, or pay one coin to save it for later. Of course, if you can’t play it now, you’ll have to pay to keep it!

Collecting more Land cards allows you to play more and bigger Monsters.

Playing Monsters is the key to scoring points: Every Monster is worth points at the end of the game, and if you play the right kind of Monster in the right Season, you can earn more points and coins during the game.

Staff cards provide a permanent bonus for your carnival, from new ways to earn coins, to Hunters that can protect you from dangerous Monsters!

Events give you a one-time boost.

Secret Goals are kept hidden until the end of the game, when they add surprise points to your score!
