King have announced its first ever live multiplayer card game, Shuffle Cats. Set in the 1920s across the rooftops of London, the new game from King’s London studio introduces players to a gang of crafty and competitive street cats, vying to win their way to the best Card Clubs in town and progress along Lucky Lane.
Now available to download free from the Apple App Store, Google Play and Facebook, Shuffle Cats will offer players the chance to become top cat through a new type of gameplay. Players from around the world will compete against each other in real time through a new, updated mobile version of the traditional card game Rummy. After being dealt seven cards each, players will seek to create as many ‘Melds’ as possible on the game board, with the first player to score 10 points winning the game. Winners will earn Gems, the key currency of Shuffle Cats, which can be used to gain entry into one of the eight Card Clubs on Lucky Lane.
