If two or more players have the same denomination coins, they take another coin, until one wins the turn and takes all the coins from that turn. There are also special coins, like the King, the Queen, the Jack, the Joker, and Bankruptcy that cause other crazy outcomes.

Game End

Why You Should Play Crown War
