5ive: King’s Court is a set-building strategy card game, where you have to complete your King’s Court and take control.

This is a fast and easy-to-learn game, in which you must fill your court with the five key card types before your opponents.

There are five members – King, Queen, Knight, Bishop, Rook – and each one of them has a special ability, which both helps you and interferes with your opponents’ plans. The King allows you to draw an extra card, the Bishop lets you get back a card from the discard pile, the Knight helps you destroy a member of someone else’s court, the Queen makes another player discard any card from their hand and lastly, the Rook prevents players from playing their card on their turn.

Cards must complete their actions and after they have been played successfully, they are placed in front of the player forming the King’s Court. When you have gathered all five members, you win the game.

However, strategy is of great significance in this game, as even the simplest mistake may mean that you cannot assemble your five and another player will complete their royal court.

5ive: King’s Court is up on Kickstarter and has already reached its funding goal.
