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

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.

If you haven't played this game you probably aren't expecting too much. I wasn't. King Me! turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.

Simply, get a secret list of your preferred characters, then place all the characters on the board. Move them up the board one at a time. When a character reaches the throne room every player votes to make that character king. Any 'no' vote and the character is removed from the game, and the game continues. However, each player has a limited number of 'no' votes. When all players vote 'yes' scores are tallied. Players receive points for the position of each of their preferred characters. A game is played over three rounds, and lasts 30 minutes at the most, more likely 10-15 minutes.

It didn't sound too thrilling to me either. There is lots of bluffing, some luck and quite a bit of strategy. King Me! is proof that a game doesn't need to last 8 hours to be a strategy game.

Give King Me! a try if you get the chance. You will likely end up playing several times in a row. This is a fun game.
