Kings

where did you find it?

This is really intriguing. Formally, I like the way the paper is cropped so that it really creates the illusion of a slightly crumpled piece of paper sitting on top of my computer screen. The content of the scrap makes me think of rules to a home-grown card game. But the actions corresponding to the card values (i.e. Bust a rhyme) are completely cryptic to me!

I found it one night at my house when I was cleaning up after a party I had. Someone had written down the rules for Kings when they were going to play it I guess, and I found it later.

What a cool find. I'm glad I have no idea what "Kings" is. Makes this so much more random and intriguing! Haha.

I think of the number of different times that different rules for different versions of Kings have been written down by different people, and I laugh.

And the nature of Kings being what it is, no one cares about the rules by the end anyway.
