Killer Queen: A super cute team arcade game I am addicted to

Here is a good 2 minute blurb about the game:

If anyone lives near a machine, I'd recommend getting a few friends and playing together.  http://killerqueenarcade.com/locations/

If anyone is in/near NYC and wants to learn, I'd happily teach some noobs and burn some cash at the Chinatown arcade.

We have one in Kansas City. It is indeed very fun. They occasionally run tournaments, but they keep happening on nights where I have something else.

I donít have a dedicated enough posse to build a solid team around, though. I wish I did. This is the kind of game where five dedicated people can make a killer team with an adaptive strategy.

Iíve only been queen during one session, but it was fun. I could play the queen again. It helps to know that the queenís real job is not just to not get killed but to prep the board for the drones to benefit. Knowing that now means Iíll have to carefully phrase my suggestion to the next queen who isnít doing that. That does explain why some games were easy to promote my drone and some were not.

We had a sticker at work next to the machine, rules for the queen

1) don't die
2) get gates

when a queen died, especially to quickly, we'd always taunt him (her?) with the note.

Sounds dynamite.  With a laser beam.

Edit:  *reads rules*  Hey, I remember this from something!  I must have seen their website when they were in the planning phases, before they had produced the cabinets.

Seriously. Why isnít Queen being blared from this machine? I mean, aside from licensing restrictions?

Iím grateful for this thread, because when Killer Queen first came to my city, I couldnít find rules or hints on how to play it. I only found promotional stuff. Like I said earlier, it would have been nice to know early on that the queenís goal is to touch gates.

Itís fun to play a team that is all gung ho and you surprise them with an economic (or snail!) victory.
