King of the Hill Rule Book

The following are the official rules for the King of the Hill game. This game is a hybrid of basic table hockey and provides fast paced and exciting fun. Inspired by the Royal Rumble, King of the Hill pits players in a sudden death situation where they must run the gauntlet and eliminate as many players as possible. The last player standing will be crowned the King/Queen of the Hill.
