Cam is a variant of Camelot, released by Parker Brothers in 1949
The game is played on a special board containing 67 cells. There are two cells called Castles. The White Castle is on cell D1 and the Black Castle is on cell D13.
There are two players: White and Black.
At the beginning of the game each player has 7 pieces: two Knights and five Men.
The board shape, the Castles and the initial position of the pieces are shown in the following picture:
There are two ways to win the game:
Players move alternately, starting with the player controlling the white pieces.
There are three kinds of moves that can be made both by Knights and Men: a plain move, a canter and a jump (capture). There is an additional kind of move that can be made by Knights only - the Knight's Charge. All of these moves are exactly the same as in the original Camelot game.
