Welcome to the Shadow Lord’s Arena!

Brave knights take up their lances, tighten their saddles, and mount their birds. Who can defeat the most foes, capture the most eggs, and truly gain the glory of being the world’s best at Midway’s Joust?
Midway’s Joust brings the classic video arcade game to the tabletop in an action-packed, strategy board game. Requiring players to manage the speed and altitude of their knight, Midway’s Joust features a unique momentum system that has players playing cards that immediately move their knight, but repeat effects for turns to come.
