Royalty is the word forming card game where players not only make words, but attempt to steal words already formed by their opponents. Play with seven cards in your hand. Make words/melds of 3 or more cards and record the score for that word by adding the point value. Knave cards act as wild cards and can be used for any letter. Capturing is done by adding at least one additional letter and changing the meaning of an opponent's word. Royalty has lots of exciting ways to score extra points, including melds or capture of words all of one color and using all seven cards in your hands. Recommended for ages 8 to adult, 2 to 6 players (although most often played by adults.) Takes the best elements of rummy and scrabble and combines for an exciting, thought-provoking word game. Includes rules of Solitaire Game called Monarchy.
