Board Game Quest is a social deduction party board game for 5-10 players, designed by Ted Alspach and published by Bezier Games in 2012. It is set in the court of King Arthur, where players are secretly assigned roles as either Loyal Servants or Minions of Mordred. The Loyal Servants must work together to complete Quests, while the Minions of Mordred must try to sabotage the Quests without being discovered.
Gameplay board game quest
The player draws a Quest card and reads it to the group, specifying the number of players and success tokens needed for the Quest to be completed. The group then discusses and votes on the chosen participants.
Once the players have voted, the Quest begins. The players who were chosen to go on the Quest each draw a Role card. The Role cards will indicate whether the player is a Loyal Servant or a Minion of Mordred. The Loyal Servants must work together to collect the necessary Success tokens, while the Minions of Mordred must try to prevent them from doing so.
The players can use various actions to collect Success tokens, such as playing Quest cards, using special abilities, and making deals with other players. If the players collect the necessary Success tokens before the Quest timer runs out, the Quest is successful and the Loyal Servants win. If the Quest timer runs out before the players collect the necessary Success tokens, the Quest is a failure and the Minions of Mordred win.
For teams of 5–10 players, Board Game Quest is a fun and difficult social deduction game. It is simple to learn yet difficult to master and has lots of replay value. There are numerous ways to play the game, and different modules can be added or deleted to alter the gameplay. Online fan-made variations are additionally accessible. Overall, Board Game Quest is a fantastic social deduction game that is fun for players at all skill levels, great for socialising with loved ones, and guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours.
