Gameplay in Brief:

To Court the King is a great dice game, bringing nice new twists to the genre -- such as special character powers. Players try to earn more dice and the ability to manipulate those dice so that they can impress the king by making the best final roll.

Players who enjoy Yahtzee but find it repetitive and limiting should love this game. To Court the King is a thinking man's Yahtzee, adding new elements without diminishing the fun. Read more in my review of To Court the King.
