King's Cup is a drinking game played with friends. A player pulls a card from the card circle and places it ontop of the cup in the center face side up. Based on the card that player or all players must take an action, usually leading to one or more people taking a drink. Detailed rules can be found on the Rules tab.
This game works best when all players are in a voice or video chat room. We can recommend Discord as an easy to use service that supports voice chat, but any voice/video chat service will work.
If joining a game created by a friend you can use the game code or link to the game to join. If you are starting a new game you can use the Share button on the top right to obtain your game code and/or game link. Share them with friends so they can join your game.
One player must host the game and invite other players to join. This player is the Host, and their game operates as the server for other players. If the host quits or closes the game other players will disconnect.
Once a game is created (by selecting Host Game in the main menu) you have a few options for inviting players:
Method 1: Steam
- Join or Host a game
- Press SHIFT+TAB to open the Steam overlay -or- minimize King's Cup and open Steam
- Open your friends list
- Right click a friend and select Invite to Game or Invite to Play
Method 2: Discord
- Join or Host a game
- Minimize King's Cup and open Discord
- Right Click a friend's name
- Select Invite to Join King's Cup (Note: Discord users can also Request to Join your game)
Method 3: Advanced Join
This method is not recommended. The host of a game will be given a server address in the game log. The server adress will look like steam://123456789 or tcp4://111.222.333.444:7777. Other players can enter this address manually at the main menu by first selecting Advanced Join. Advanced Join will bring up an input box for the server address.
