It is card game that "marriages" UNO with Solitaire. Cards depict male and female characters of four families. Players advance the Genealogy of the Royal Family by playing cards next to other cards (like Solitaire) and whoever empties his hand first wins the game (like UNO). You can make Marriages, have kids, assassinate and exile characters. It has all the intrigue of a royal family. At the same time certain characters can generate effects that can affect your opponents (like Draw 3 cards, change order of play, etc). It is a rather nice and quick game. There is a lot of fun playing the different characters with all these fabulous pictures and names. The game appeals to both genders! Highly recommended game. Kids can pick up the game rather easily and enjoy playing it over and over again. But be prepared to explain why Steve Jackson is indicating in a couple of cards that it is a male character with a female picture and vice-versa!
