Rising Kings Rules Description:
In Rising Kings the old king has died and has no heir. Can you gain enough support and influence to become the new king?
Rising Kings is a card game published by Omnigames. The game starts by dealing out seven cards to each player. The game ends once the draw deck is empty. The player with the most points at game ends win.
There are three types of cards: characters, buildings and rebellion cards. Each character or building card has specific abilities that let you draw cards, play more cards or destroy (or steal) other players’ cards. One rebellion card negates one City Guard or Fortress for one turn. When in play, these City Guards and Fortresses must be targeted instead of your other character and building cards respectively.
On your turn you draw two cards, keeping one and discarding the other. You then play one character and/or building and as many rebellions as you want, in any order. You must always play at least one character or building if you have one in your hand.
The character and building cards you play remain in front of you, but may be destroyed, swapped or stolen by other players. Rebellion cards stay in play until the draw phase of the person who laid its next turn.
At the end of the game you score one point for every character and two points for every building in front of you. You also get five bonus points if you have the most character cards in front of you. For each building type you have the most of you get two bonus points per building of that type.
Most points = new king!
