At the start of a game of Kings in the Corners, all the cards are dealt to what is called a stock pile. The top card of this stock pile is available for play.

There are 16 tableau piles in four rows of four. The corner piles are marked for Kings, the left and right side piles are marked for Jacks, and the top and bottom piles are marked for Queens.

The object of the game is to place the 4 Kings, 4 Queens, and 4 Jacks in these positions. The game is won when this is done (regardless of where the other cards are).

Play by moving the top card of the stock to an empty pile in the tableau. When a King comes up, place it in a pile marked for Kings, and do the same for Queens and Jacks. Cards are to be placed in the tableau and the tableau must be completely filled before any cards may be removed.

Once the tableau is filled, two cards that add to 10 may be paired and removed from play (Tens are removed singly). Cards other than the King, Queen, or Jack may be placed in the marked edge piles, but you will need to remove them in a pair so that a King, Queen, or Jack can later be played there. Once a card has been placed, it cannot be moved except to create a pair that adds to 10 (or is a Ten).

When all possible pairs have been removed, fill the tableau again from the stock. When the tableau is once again filled, cards can be paired once again.

Repeat the process. The game is won if the 12 Kings, Queens, and Jacks are all placed in their proper places. The game is lost if a King, Queen, or Jack appears and there is no proper place to put it, or if the tableau fills up and there are no pairs to remove.

The Key To Success

The key to winning is to keep the marked piles open as long as possible. Place Kings, Queens, and Jacks in their marked places when they appear (you cannot place them on any other pile). Fill the center first with lower cards. When the center is full, you will need to place cards on the spaces for Kings, Queens, and Jacks. Fill up places where there are the most other options available (for example, if there are 3 empty King spaces but only two empty Queen and Jack spaces, fill the King space first). Note that you will always be able to remove a 10 once the tableau is filled.
