The mythological animals are battling to see who is the ultimate King of the Beasts. The dragon is the largest, the kraken is the strongest, the unicorn is the most enchanting, and the manticore and the gryphon are powerful in their own rights. Even the tiny fire salamander wants to be King! But who will win the most votes? Gain as many points as possible by nominating animals to be King, while still keeping some of the cards for your score pile. Once an animal becomes King, points are awarded - the player with the most points wins!
The lion, the King of the Beasts, has grown old and wants to retire, so now the animals need a new king! Everyone from the hippo to the pelican to the little mouse are rallying for enough votes, giving points to those who nominate them. But the players of this crafty little strategy game need to carefully balance their nominations with the points they choose to take, or their candidate may never win!
