On their turn, players can take several actions, including the following. Play a king card to wake up a sleeping queen and add it to their score pile. Play a knight card to steal a sleeping queen from another player's score pile. Play a dragon card to put a sleeping queen back to sleep.

Anne says:

When you play the jester & flip a power card, which you then put in your hand, when you flip again & don't get a number card but get another power card, do you continue to collect the power cqrds in your hand until you flip a number card? Are you allowed to have more than 5 cards? Thanks, great fun.

Can you make the rules more accessible? I'm having trouble downloading the PDF.
Niki says:

Can you send us a hard copy of the game rules so we can follow the video better? We purchased the game second hand and it is missing the instructions. Looks like fun! Thank you
Holy says:

Love sleeping queens
Shan says:

If you have no queens and only have protection cards (wands and dragons) in hand, what do you do on your turn (since you can't discard either protection card without a knight or sleeping potion to counter)?
Lillian says:

Can you play more than one king at your turn.
