Five Kings is a challenging melding card game played solitaire or against your friends.
In this game you play 11 rounds against the computer and/or against other humans. The winner is the player who has the lowest score at the end of the game.
You start with the round of 3's where you have 3 cards and 3's are wild (in addition to Jokers). You end with the round of Kings where you have 13 cards and Kings are wild.
In each turn, draw from the Draw or Discard pile to your hand, meld your cards (by dragging them to the meld area on the screen), and discard a card to the Discard pile.
Melds are 3 or more of the same rank, or 3 or more in a sequence, including as many wild cards as you like.
A player is "out" when they have melded all their cards, giving them a score of 0 for the round.
All other players get one more turn to improve their hands, or also go out. At the end of the round, your score for the round is the sum of the unmelded cards you have left. Cards count their face value except that unmelded wild cards count 20, and unmelded Jokers count 50!
Sound difficult? Fortunately Five Kings has five (of course) game difficulties from Beginner (where the game helps you play and gives you hints) to Challenging (where your on your own against the Expert). The Easy opponent may throw you wild cards half the time, but you'll need all your skills and strategy to beat the Expert consistently.
Five Kings is inspired by the popular card game Five Crowns by Set Enterprises.
