-Player that eliminates the king takes king's points
I tried that rule the other day and it was a blast
. Several things had to be clarified though. So, in my endless need to make things needlessly complicated...
-Simply put, "...you only get the king's points if you ace the king..." thanks, Mike! No points are taken away if the king makes contact with the bag before it drops into his own square. In that case it's the king's own fault, he's out but retains his score. The same applies if the king does something else that is considered an 'out' under current game rules. There was an instance where a player who had not kicked the bag at all but did a kick fake to help get the king out. He and the player that actually kicked the bag last split the king's points.
-No self destruction. Several players were keen enough to develope the strategy of intentionally getting themselves out while in the king square (or any square to avoid being a king) to keep from losing their points to anyone else. Any player that self-destructs will lose their points. Any questionable act can be voted on. This will be a mess no matter what...
-You can only win in the king square. It is possible to get more than the required points to win the game while being in squares 1-3, but you still have to get to the final square to officially win and end the game.
Hope that all made sense. It's late and I should have been sleeping. OOH! more rules to try...
tag team hack-off - you can pick one of the 2 neutral squares to help in a hack-off
Timed 4 square - no points. Person in the king square at the end of a designated amount of time wins
