Move over Solitaire, there's a new king of card games! King’s Corner, or Kings in the Corner, is a great game for all ages—easy to pick up and endlessly entertaining. And now, refreshed for iOS 11 and updated to support the latest and greatest devices, King’s Corner 2 is an even better experience than the original.
Play on your own with an AI that’s as challenging as you like: one to three opponents can miss moves while you’re still learning and be laser-accurate once you’ve mastered the game. Play with friends online via Game Center or in a group with our all-new pass & play mode that’s all the fun with none of the shuffling and dealing.
King’s Corner 2 features new animations and a completely redesigned interface, new achievements to give you more to work towards as you hone your skills and strategize (or just get lucky!) and, as always, it’s fully compatible with VoiceOver so players with limited or no vision are welcome.
Here’s how the game works:
King's Corner uses the same basic rules as games like Solitaire—cards are placed in descending order and in alternating colors. A red 9 can be played on a black 10, or a black ace can be placed on a red 2.
The deck is set up with 8 spaces around the deck; four king spaces (marked with a crown) and four unmarked spaces. You'll get a new card at the beginning of every turn, and the goal of the game is to get rid of your cards first by making as many of the following types of moves as possible:
• Add a card to any existing stack
• Move a card or stack in one unmarked space to the bottom of any other card or stack. King stacks don't move, since there's nothing higher than a King.
• Start a new stack if there's an empty space on the table. Only kings can start the corner stacks, but any other card can start a stack in one of the four unmarked spots.
Note: This version of King's Corner is ad-supported. If you enjoy it, be sure to check out the paid, ad-free version also available on the App Store.
This version includes minor bug fixes and improvements, and has been optimized for iOS 12 and the latest iOS devices.
Ratings and Reviews
Love this game
This is my favorite solitaire type card game, because the gameplay is real quick and easy. Plus, it gets more intriguing the better you become. As you play more games you can figure out better strategies of when to play some of your cards so you can the control stacks. This is so you can dominate your opponent. Also, a great feature is you can stop a game at anytime by just not playing your turn. You can go do other things on your phone or even close the app, and when you want to play again the app opens right back to where you were in the game. So you can never get kicked out of a game you were in. And finally, even if you have no wifi or cell signal, you can keep on playing.
Even though I've achieved Diamond, the game still won't give me credit for completing the achievement. The win percentage also doesn't seem quite accurate. If I win say 10 games in a row, the win percentage has me going about 8-2. I don't know if the win percentage counts a loss for closing the app or not playing my turn right away, but something is not fully accurate about the win percentage.
A new stat I'd like to see is longest win streak. I like keeping current streaks going as long as I can, and it'd be fun to try and keep a current steak going to beat an all-time streak.
I enjoy playing this game. One suggestion to the writer: the opponent doesn't always do everything that could be done during their move. Also it would be nice to have the app keep a running track of the player's wins and losses beyond the current round.
Hi, thanks for checking out my game! This is intentional, actually—the "difficulty" option in the app's settings panel gives you three options: on "easy" or "normal" the AI doesn't always make the best moves possible and sometimes misses moves entirely, just like a human player might. If you prefer, set it to "hard" and this won't happen anymore.
Unfair to “real” players
I love this card game and can’t always get hubby to play it with me. So I was thrilled to find it in the App Store. Unfortunately I think it is stacked against a human player. The computer wins most of the time and gets the best cards. When I have to pass several times in a row, “computer” keeps making plays. Several times before passing. I will delete this app now.
