recently played this and i really enjoyed it! very fun solo experience.

Glad you enjoyed it ! I've got other solo games you can try if you feel like it https://itch.io/c/2308903/solo

This is a really cool game. It's the first one I played from the Solo But Not Alone 2 bundle, and it's fun!

So nice to read that, I hope it went well! Still one hundred games to try 😀 !

I just played Dead Belt today, and can definitely recommend! This is a very cool bundle.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'm moving it to the top of my list

I'm so happy to see this updated! I have an unused but beautiful deck of cards that would be perfect for kingslaying..

Have you found the perfect D20 to use with it? Have a good time!

Well, there are dice sets made out of human bones...

😱 I'm horrified (yet slightly envious)


I love this slim, straightforward, and direct use of the Carta rules! I was worried people would be daunted by the idea of writing a huge game, but I never thought a game like this was possible!

I also love the vibe and the intensity!


Thanks for the comment !
By the way, the tag line "Hunt and defeat the 4 Kings" is inspired by one of your tweet. Thanks for that too!


Incredibly neat and compelling concept. Despite its simplicity, there's decision-making to be made in deciding how to affect and balance which aspects of your 'character' (the pawn) will change in reaction to a success/fail. 

I'd like to see a hack or an update on this where weird abilities can be added. Peeking under a card, swapping adjacent cards, flipping colors, or even the idea of a joker chasing you around the grid. The seamless system makes it very easy to imagine more possibilities! 


Thanks! I was mostly considering a two players variant. But all of these are great ideas and your nice feedback is really motivating to keep on working on this game!
