Q: How do I play?

A: You'll find that information in the "How to Play" section of this website.

Q: Where can I download it?

A: Again, that would be in the "download" part of the site. Thanks for visiting.

Q: When I click "Help..." nothing happens. Why? I need help!

A: The help file and the executable need to be in the same directory. You probably moved the game without moving the associated help file.

Q: Who are those people on the cards?

A: The royalty cards in Royalty contain images of people who figure in the creators' lives one way or another.

Q: Why is there a duck on the ace of spades?

A: You wouldn't understand.

Q: Why can't I put an ace onto a King?

A: Aces are low in this game, meaning they count as 1's.

Q: I can't seem to get a time under 100. What am I doing wrong?

A: You're not playing fast enough.

Q: No really, I have only broken 100 once.

A: I'm truly sorry. Try thinking ahead of where you are, and practice your mouse skills.

Q: How can I tell whether I'm doing good? Is 68 a good time?

A: The standard of times varies from group to group, but those who are serious about the game have developed the following guidelines to rank your time:

How Do You Rank?

> 200 Don't feel bad -- we all do that the first time we play.
> 100 Keep trying...
< 100 Now you're getting somewhere.
< 80 You are officially a Royalty player now.
< 70 Climbing the ranks...
< 60 Great! Finesse it just a bit more, if you can
< 50 Stinkin' amazing! You are obviously obsessed.
< 40 Royalty god (we only know of one person who has achieved this level)

Q: What does FAQ mean?

A: No such thing as a dumb question, right? It is an "acronym" which stands for Frequently Asked Questions.

Q: I accidentally cleared my Low Times! Is there any way to recover them?

A: Yes. Keep playing until you get all the same Low Times as you had before.

Q: Why did you put people's faces on the cards? Doesn't it make more sense to use the standard faces?

A: We thought people's faces would be better than say, watch faces, happy faces, or goat faces. Wait... actually, I think goat faces would be hilarious. Look for Royalty 3, the all-new Goat Version, coming soon!

Q: How many paths must a man walk down?

A: 42.

Q: I regularly practice my mousing skills. After thorough testing in real game situations, I have even configured my mouse for optimum speed and accuracy in Royalty gaming. Should I be concerned that I am an addict?

A: Concerned? No. Proud? Yes.
