History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS card game contains individual, beautifully illustrated cards of forty key British kings and queens from Alfred the Great to our present day queen, Elizabeth II
Each card is illustrated to represent the individual monarch in history and shows their dates, her ‘house’ and seven gripping facts about them, including a joker fact about each character to surprise and/or entertain. Discover which monarch’s huge stomach exploded during his (oops, a bit of a clue there!) funeral, creating a terrible stench and who was described by one Victorian historian as ‘the most perfect character in history’.
The game also contains a card with the famous rhyme to help all players remember the order of all the kings and queens from 1066 to the present day.
There are many ways of playing the History Heroes: KINGS & QUEENS card game. We provide suggestions in the box on how to play and you can make up your own rules too if everyone playing agrees to them! The aim of any History Heroes game is simple: you win the game by winning the cards and you win the cards by guessing/knowing the facts. You can use the images as clues and you can use the different levels of facts to make it as easy or as hard as you want to play the game. Different people can play on different levels of fact within the same game so that all ages and stages can play together. The green facts are the easiest working down to the red facts, the most difficult. You can, of course, use the joker fact at the bottom, too, to overrule them all!
