About Tainted Grail: Kings of Ruin
Kings of Ruin is a new stand-alone story campaign from the team behind the acclaimed Tainted Grail board game, set in the same universe. Playable with a brand new set of exciting characters, it continues the stories of Fall of Avalon, Last Knight, and Age of Legends while also providing a perfect self-contained entry into the saga for new players.
During your experience with the game you will explore new land (with a totally changed system of traveling through Wyrdness), solve encounters with force or diplomacy with unique puzzle card system, and develop your heroes with new passive skills, cards and powerful items.
Most importantly, you will discover a dark immersive story of abandoned land at the wrong side of Avalon and Kings of Ruin ruling there:
Claudyne, the Unknighted.
Nonus, Bishop of the Deep.
About Tainted Grail: The Fall of Avalon
Tainted Grail: the Fall of Avalon is an unforgettable, solo or cooperative adventure experience for 1-4 players. Blending Arthurian legends and Celtic mythology with a unique vision, it allows you to impact the game world in deep and meaningful ways. A deep, branching storyline allows you to tackle problems in different ways, ensuring no two games play alike. Difficult decisions or harrowing choices wait behind every corner and seemingly minor tasks may reverberate with major long-term consequences.
In a land slowly sinking into the Wyrdness and torn apart by conﬂict; surviving each day is a challenge on its own. Starvation, sickness, violent weather, and random incidents all conspire to end your journey. Guardian Menhirs, that ensured safe travel throughout the realm, are slowly going dark turning simple logistics into an involving puzzle. To overcome these challenges, your character develops along several conﬂicting lines, such as Brutality / Empathy or Practicality / Spirituality. These traits unlock a rich choice of mutually exclusive skills and lead to diﬀerent deck-building strategies, making character advancement meaningful and deep.
The character you develop is going to be tested during dozens of combat and non-combat encounters. Sometimes you will need to brute force your way, but often diplomacy might be a better option. Regardless whether you fight with your strength or your wits, our unique dice-less encounter system makes resolving each conﬂict fun and exciting, while keeping you immersed in the game.
In Avalon, there’s a legend waiting behind every stone and every tree. All locations have their own rich stories and secrets to discover. Places and characters are often much more than they seem. As you slowly put all the pieces of the larger puzzle together, the land will always have a surprise waiting for you just around the corner. Many secrets can be discovered only after several games. Created by one of the best polish fantasy authors, Krzysztof Piskorski, the story of Tainted Grail: the Fall of Avalon aims to push the boundaries of non-linear narrative, building upon the rich experience.

Just made the pledge and will probably arrive 10 months later, but without a doubt, I expect nothing less from the best story I have ever seen written in board games. I own FoA + Red Death + Age of Conquest + The Last Knight and have played all 4 campaigns. Looking forward to play them again with other characters and FoA 2.0 upgrade pack. Unless the gameplay will be unreasonably difficult, like in Age of Conquest, my rating will not change from 10 to 9.
