King Frog is a fast-paced game about frogs moving around the pond. Players try to stay in the game for as long as possible and to land on the right spot. Spatial thinking, clever planning and a bit of luck make King Frog an engaging game for two to four players aged seven years and up. King Frog takes about 15 minutes to play. The game is artful, fun and develops strategic thinking.
Players select cards from their hand to move their frogs around the pond, hopping over any frogs in the way, with lower cards getting priority. If you land on a lilly pad of your color, you put your card back into your hand. Otherwise, you discard your card. If someone runs out of cards, they are eliminated from the game. The game also ends as soon as the person in front (the king frog) hops over the person in last place, and the king frog wins.
