Board Game Capital's Review (2019-09-08):
Queens & Kings BoardHonestly, we've had this thought for quite some time, "I wonder if you could somehow play checkers with more than just two people." Whirtel Games has done just that by creating a four player checker style game. Although similar to Chinese checkers, Queens & Kings looks and feels more like traditional checkers with its own tricks up its sleeve.

The first thing we saw when we opened up our game box was that our game board had a crack in it. We were only disappointed for a second when we realized the game board looked so realistic that that crack was actually printed on the board. We love the game board - it looks like real wood! Not to mention it is very sturdy and well made (like the rest of the game components). The miniature poker style chips look and feel amazing and the little felt draw string bag to keep them in is the cherry on the top. Excellent game quality and awesome gaming components.

Game rules are very simple and mimic that of your typical checkers. We did feel, however, that the rule book was a little redundant with information slightly scattered around. We felt like it could have been condensed and organized a little better but that didn't stop us from learning how to play in less than five minutes. One more gripe while we're critiquing - the game box is so perfect fitting to the game that unless you have drawstring bag really flat and slightly loosened, the lid won't fit. Pieces could fall out of the felt bag so we just kept them in their plastic bags.

Queens & Kings PiecesPlaying is a lot of fun. You typically think a king is the best but in this game that's not true. It's the queen with all the power. We liked the mad dash to the middle and that there were two special move pieces. Trying to find the right piece when you needed it (if your newly flipped over king reveals to be a queen) wasn't a huge deal. We actually had an extra queen and king at the start of the game so they came in handy. Playing with four players was a blast. Playing with three was a little odd since the person with no one in front of them had a slight advantage to become a queen. Still nice to play checkers with more than just two players.

Overall we really liked this game. If you like checkers and want a slight variant that includes up to four people then this is your game. We were impressed by the durable and well made game pieces. Queens & Kings is a great staple game to have in your collection - we're glad it's in ours.
