Project overview

Your last chance to support the largest Kickstarter hit of 2018, critically acclaimed:


Tainted Grail is an adventure and survival cooperative Board Game set in a unique grim world, inspired by Arthurian legends. Filled with over a thousand cards, and countless pages of non-linear story, Tainted Grail offers an unforgettable, campaign-based experience for 1-4 players.


What makes the Tainted Grail special?
  • Your characters are flawed outcasts, called upon after the true champions of the land failed or fell. Each has a unique flavor, a powerful ability, one big drawback, as well as customizable Combat and Diplomacy decks.
  • Your decisions shape your adventure and the game world around you. Various statuses and cards change the way others react to you and frequently unlock new interactions.
  • Guardian Menhirs that ensured safe movement throughout the realm are slowly going dark, turning simple travel into an engaging puzzle played on a sprawling, beautiful map.
  • Some of your deeds swap location cards for their new versions, gradually evolving the game world.
  • A dynamic, unique Combat and Diplomacy system makes using both your brute force and your negotiation skills fun and engaging.
  • Regardless of whether you play alone or in a group of four, the game scales up to provide an adequate challenge. What’s more, you may add or remove players after each Chapter, modifying the group size as you go!
  • Each campaign offers multiple branching paths and several alternative endings. After you survive it once, there are still lots of new things to see, and storylines to experience. In Avalon, there’s a legend waiting behind every stone and every tree.
That’s why so many backers decided to support the game, and so many reviewers loved the prototype!


The Pre-Kickstarter demo of the game received praise from several recognized boardgame industry professionals. See what some of them they had to say:

"I love this game.(...) If you like exploration games, if you like narrative games, this is something you really, really need to back.” - Man vs Meeple

A super sharp game. A great mish-mash of Ameritrash big, epic adventures and Euro-style resource management with really clever gameplay.“ - Rahdo

The Tainted Grail is easily my most anticipated solo / co-op Kickstarter of the year! The unique combat mechanics, excitement of exploration and extremely deep narrative really pull you into the world.(...) This is a must have for me!" - Rolling solo

An absolutely phenomenal game!(...) The story sticks with you and you feel your characters troubles and encounters along the journey.” - The McGuire Review

The Exploration Journal has so much hidden magnificence it’s going to blow you away(...) I don’t even want to call this a game. This is an experience.” - Crabbok

Late Pledge is your last chance to get all the benefits of a Kickstarter supporter: two additional campaigns, hundreds of cards, two story books and eight new characters FOR FREE. Additionally, you will receive a special Pack Donkey Pack gift, free digital game code + digital soundtrack, and access to add-ons and collectibles that may be unavailable in Retail.


To make a Late Pledge, simply add any product from the Pledges category to your cart. Then, add any Expansions, Add-ons and Collector’s items you’re interested in – and proceed to checkout!

The game will be delivered in two waves. Wave 1 is scheduled to ship approximately in August 2019 and will contain the Core Box of the game, as well as any products marked as “Ships in Wave 1”. Wave 2 includes all Stretch Goals and Expansions and is currently scheduled for May 2020.

The language editions will ship approximately 3 months after their respective English waves. Backers can choose either two-wave shipping and receive both Waves separately (Core Box in 2019 and Stretch Goals + Expansions in 2020) or one-wave shipping that will deliver all parts of the game together, in 2020.
