PCHGames Tournament OFFICIAL RULES
PCHgames Kings in the Corner Tournament Rules1. How to Play Kings in the Corner
Start off by choosing a difficulty level of easy, normal or hard! Then select a card from the draw pile to begin. Try to place any of your cards that are one lower in value and opposite in color on one of the foundation piles. Now here’s why the game’s called Kings in the Corner — if you draw a King, you must place it in one of the “free” corner spots to start a new pile before your turn is up. If you get stuck and can’t play a card, you can end your turn by clicking “DONE” in the lower right. The first person to run out of cards wins! Note: Please click QUIT when you are ready to submit your score and collect your tokens! TipsAces are the lowest cards, and nothing can be stacked on them. You can move and stack an entire foundation pile onto another pile to free up space and make way for new cards. Cards can only be placed under foundation piles if one of the primary foundation slots is empty
