I believe play proceeds in this order:


Quote:
Player 1
Player 2


Then...


New Round

Player 2
Player 1

New Round

Player 1
Player 2

New Round

Player 2
Player 1

New Round

Player 1
Player 2

Repeat from top 'New Round'


Now lets say Player 2 receives the King at the point shown below:


Quote:
New Round

Player 2
Player 1

New Round

Player 1
Player 2

New Round


Would player 1 still get to take a normal turn?

Or would play go straight to the final round section with player 1 trying to beat whatever the King rolled when he acquired the King Card?

This.

Player 2 finished the current round by claiming the King and the Queen. No additional rounds are played besides the final round. Player 1 then rolls to try to claim the King from Player 2 and if that succeeds Player 2 tries to take the King back and the game ends.

Hi! It goes like that. Let's assume Player 1 went first in Round 1.

Example 1

Round 6:
Player 2 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. Knight)
Player 1 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. Pawnbroker)

Round 7:
Player 1 : Rolls and claims the King
Player 2 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. General)

Round 8: (final)
Player 2 : Rolls to claim King from Player 1
Player 1 : Rolls to defend her King


Example 2

Round 7:
Player 1 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. General)
Player 2 : Rolls and claims the King

Round 8: (final)
Player 2 : (Does NOT roll; she's skipped and will roll last)
Player 1 : Rolls to claim King from Player 2
Player 2 : Rolls to defend her King


Example 3 (4-player, but will help)

Round 5:
Player 1 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. General)
Player 2 : Rolls and claims the King
Player 3 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. Knight)
Player 4 : Rolls and claims a card (e.g. Bishop)

Round 6: (final)
Player 4 : Rolls to claim King from Player 2; fails
Player 1 : Rolls to claim King from Player 2; succeeds
Player 2 : (Does NOT roll; she's skipped and will roll last)
Player 3 : Rolls to claim King from Player 1; succeeds
Player 2 : Rolls to reclaim her King from Player 3

Thanks for cementing the answers.

With more players it's less of a chore remembering when you've had 1-2 turns and when the end of a round is.

To this end I designed my own tracker sheet. It also keeps an eye on the start figure, and stops it from being thrown/ignored between players.
