The rules of the game and almost everything you need are all on a single page. You'll just need to provide a pen and a standard deck of 52 playing cards.

It's great for online play too — just appoint someone to draw and announce the next card or use an online card-drawing tool.

As I asked in the “Kingdom Dice”. I am looking for inspiration to make a small videogame. Which kind of license does it have? Can I use rules and art, or part of it, to make a small videogame?


Wonderful game. Thanks for sharing it !


very good game :) 


Hi Isaac! I just played this game and I really enjoyed it!

I had a doubt about the K/Q/J villagers. Is only one K/Q/J card enough to mark all 3 family members or do I have to draw all three cards?

I really liked the idea of using the cards to combine the result (suit and number/figure). Thanks!


Yep, as soon as you mark one K/Q/J villager, mark all three. So you only need one card to do it, as long as you can match the pattern.


Just played with my wife and 5 year old son and we had a blast! I also have one question about the “royal” villagers… If you have the pattern for, say, the K/Q/J of hearts, can you add their house when you get a face card of any suit? Or does it need to be a face card from the matching suit (hearts in my example)?


Nice, glad you enjoyed it!

Yes, the intention is that in order to welcome the Heart KQJ family, you would need a Heart face card (or you can use an Ace of any suite).


Perfect, thanks! One last question - when you have welcomed a royal family, does the house count as 1 or 3 villagers? We think it’s 3, but the question came up, as it really counts towards the final tally!


Yep, three is correct!
