I love this game!! it’s a combo of different games...so it really twists my brain to switch gears between taking hands and avoiding things. Most great games are ruined by crazy ads, but the ads in Kings aren’t too often and can all be easily skipped which is great :)
99% of players are bots posing as players. They have names but they are bits and yes, they cheat. The scoring is so whack that although there are 10 rounds of play you can easily go down 50 points or more after those rounds. If you fail to take any tricks in a round, a very common occurrence, zero is not enough of a punishment I guess. You lose 2 points in addition. Why do you lose 2 points for getting zero??? One round requires taking no hearts, another no tricks at all. If the other 3 players choose those options in a row, you can potentially go down 100 points. Very few actual players in this game and there is no relief as the score is endless. All the other “players” have scores in the 10’s of thousands. If you play daily and consistently you will be lucky to reach 1000 points.
I’ve been playing Barbu for years, and play King almost daily. I think the scoring can be improved in several ways. First, every hand should be worth about the same as every other hand. There is no need for Queens to total -6 and Losing Tricks to total-13. Second, I would not bonus people who take no (negative) tricks (or penalize someone who takes no (positive) tricks. One should be bonused if one outperforms the declarer and the declarer should be penalized for underperforming another player. Third, the nice thing about Barbu was that it was a zero-sum game; King should be too. Fourth, I loved FanTan. Can’t that be added back into King?
The game has great graphic to simulate a real card table. Ability to invite friends to play against would make it perfect. Seems like I am playing against random opponents at every hand which is a bit annoying. Why can’t we continue to play with same opponents.
Fun to learn all the games and switch between them. Sometimes it’s like playing Yahtzee, having to decide from limited options. It would be good it they could create a tournament, a bigger game option among four players committed to one tournament of 40 small games.
Even though some players loose game they don’t get their points deducted if they leave before the game ends. That’s not fair to others. Also it happened to me a few times that the same player got to be at the same table at two different spots. How is that possible?
Good speed. Good visuals. No way you know you actually finished a game. You guys have to review that. I’m not expecting fireworks kind of things but at lest one message saying’you won’ or “you lose “ you would be nice. I’m just saying. People don’t always follow the game number I think. Otherwise, I personally, missed this game . It’s a good game although the rules are a bit off. And I’m one of the one national that basically invented the game. PS: I’m still bad ai it
First of all, thanks for this game, i know the rules of Hokm, there are hokm games in this program but the rules are not completely correct. I suggest you to correct these rules . Everything is ok but there is just this problem 😊🙏🏻
I’m play along then notice I started another game. Needs “YOU WIN!” “YOU LOSE!” “GAME OVER” smiling face or sad face - SOMETHING!!!!! I love this game but pissesme off when I don’t know the set is over!!!
This is a great game that I really enjoy, however, there are a few glitches and poor programming that needs to be addressed to make it better. The most obvious error is when playing with "Robot" players during a Negative hand of "no kings or jacks": the robots play as if they want to win each trick. Also, I am not a fan of being forced to play certain cards if I can't follow the suit led. For instance, when playing "no hearts" I'd rather be able to lay off a high card in an off suit than be forced to lay off a low heart that would likely never win a trick. A similar thing happens when playing with trump for positive hands. Just because I can't follow suit led doesn't mean I'm always going to trump it, especially if I know another player doesn't have the suit as well and that their card would beat my trump. If you fix little things like that then this game would get 5 stars from me.
This is a great game I used to play during my university years... Unfortunately, robots are not playing with any logic, for example, robot starts with an ace for the game of "No Boys". The game is also played at different times with different players... Penalty points and rewards do not make sense at some cases... Good application but expecting further improvements...
King is a trick-taking card game played by four players. The game is popular in many countries and is similar to the Barbu (Tafferan) game. It uses a standard 52-card pack, ranking from highest to lowest A K Q J 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 in each of the four suits. Trump contracts are positive contracts. Tricks taken in the trump games give positive points. There are six negative contracts: No Tricks, No Hearts, No Boys, No Girls, No King of Hearts, No Last Two. Taking cards/tricks gives a penalty points. See help page for the detailed rules of the game. Enjoy simple interface and attractive game view!
