Here is how you play: There are 12 Queen cards. Each Queen is worth a different point value. You spread out all the Queen cards face down (so that they are sleeping). Then you take the rest of the deck and deal out 5 cards per person. The remaining cards are placed face down into the draw pile. On your turn you must choose from the cards in your hand and decide which action to take.
There are 3 different "Action" cards. The King card can be used to wake a Sleeping Queen and place it face up in front of you. A Knight Card can be played to capture someone else's Queen. Or a Sleeping Potion Card will put someone else's Queen back to sleep (meaning they lose their Queen and must put her face down back in with the other Sleeping Queens).
There are also "Defense" Cards. A Dragon card will prevent a Knight from stealing a Queen. A Magic Wand card will block against the Sleeping Potion. There are also number cards that don't really have any value and can be traded/discarded for better cards if you have no other options.
There are a few other rules and options, but that is the general gist of the game. The Object of the game can vary as well. You can either play by tallying points (the one with the most points wins), or you can play by tallying Queens (the one with the most Queens once the Queens are all awakened).
Each game takes maybe 20 minutes, so not too long for little ones to lose interest.Read more ›
This toy has paid iteself back 10 fold. I would highly reccomend this card game. Another card game, Rat-a-tat-cat was also a winner in this house too.
Game play is relatively simple after you learn it. It's kind of tricky at first to remember what each card does, but after a few games you'll get it. The object is to collect queens. Each queen has a number of points ranging anywhere from 5 to 20. You're trying to get to a certain number of points or queens and the number changes depending on how many people are playing. If you run out of queens before someone reaches the magic number then whoever has the most points wins. Certain queens have special powers: the Rose Queen, while only worth the minimum 5 points, allows you to draw an extra queen whenever you wake her up. The Cat Queen and the Dog Queen are worth 15 points each, but cannot be possesed by the same player at once. If you draw one, but already have the other, you put it back and your turn is over. To wake up a queen, you simply have to play a king card. A knight card allows you to steal a queen from an opponent but can be blocked if your victim has a dragon card. The sleeping potion card allows you to put a queen back to sleep and can be blocked by a magic wand card. You use the number cards to get more cards, either by making addition facts or by playing matching pairs. That's what makes the game educational. Anyway, that's how the game is played, but if you're creative enough you can invent other games, or go through the deck and name all the kings, queens, knights, and dragons as Brooke (I'm Anne) and I have.Read more ›
