More suited for new gamers
August 22, 2008

King Me! is a light filler game. The object of the game is to get your characters to the highest levels of the king's castle. There are seven floors of the castle (0,1,2,3,4,5,10). Each player receives one of 26 secret goals that lists 6 of the 13 characters. On your turn, you move any character up a level, but characters cannot be moved down. Note that the maximum number of characters that can occupy any level is four. Once a character is moved up to the top level, a simultaneous vote takes place. Each player votes either Yes or No. If everyone votes Yes, the round ends. But if there are any No votes, the character is removed. Everyone gets their Yes votes back, but No votes are not returned. You start with one Yes vote and 2-4 No votes, depending on the number of players. You get points after each round, based on the levels that your characters occupy. In the third and final round, you can also try to get 33 points if all 6 of your characters are voted out.

You can learn to play King Me! in just two minutes and the game is short. I find that it's good for a group of new gamers. There's not much strategy or control, but if you're not expecting much, it's a good way to start off a game night when you have several new attendees.

Simple strategy game
March 08, 2005

What could be more simple? Who do you want to be the next king? Should you elect one of your preferred characters, or elect someone you don't like in hopes that he gets rejected.

This game was very intriguing when we played it. The strategy is simple and yet it takes a lot of tactical thought prior to making a move. You can play safe and vote no on the first few people that aren't on your list of characters, or you can be a risk taker and hope that others will veto the choice so that you can conserve your no votes.

The final round really throws a monkey wrench in the works. Basically you can attempt to "Shoot the moon" (as in Hearts) and try to get zero points. By doing so on the final round you get a large point bonus. But get even 1 point and you are in trouble.

King Me is fun for everyone, especially those that love strategy. Definitely give this one a try.

A fun and quick game
October 27, 2004
This is a nice fast game for in between. We very much enjoyed this game. I hope it will continue to be fun for along time. Good and easy rules a game which grips non- gamers.
