As king, you live in a castle, but it is not completely built yet.  You start with a corridor room that has three exits and purchase rooms to add on to it to gain points. There are always several goals that every player is  trying  to be the best at so they get the most points for it at the end of the game.  In addition, each player starts with a secret goal and will have the opportunity to obtain more during the game.  When you close a room you always get a reward, and sometimes they are really great.  It may seem strange that certain  rooms don’t like to be next to other types of rooms, but in the end, may the best Mad King win!

Elimination rounds
The top 16 players will advance to the semi-final round. When considering who will advance to the semi-final round, we will consider margin of victory if we have no other way to break a tie (for example, amongst players with one heat win and no other heats entered.)
The winner of the 4 semi-final games will advance to the final round.
