A Micro Game of Cat-nniving Intrigues & Furocious Paw-er Grab At The Royal Court




The King is dead! Long live the…who??? Amidst the power vacuum left by the King’s untimely demise, the Royal Courtesans are all salivating over the claim to the high seat of the regency throne. Secret coalitions are banded, Schemes are plotted, and good ol’ daggers are stabbed in the back. Play your hand of Royals in a game of Dominance assertion, all the while screwing your competitor. The crown is within your grasp; you just need to step over others to get it!

Royals is a micro card game that is quick to pick up, but hard to put down. The rules are simple. Each player draws a set of cards, and must utilize them in the right combination to net them the most points.

But not so fast! For you can play each card in two ways - place it for points, or use its schemes for quick, chain comboing actions. This means there are bizzllions of ways that you could play your hand! Your perfect plan could easily be broken by other’s schemes, and a risky draw might be all that you need to score big!

So grab some buddies or kiddies, start up a game of Royals, and see who end up sitting on that throne!
