Newby here. Playing  Kings Court: I just played a 2 player game where I had multiple Kings Courts and Markets (due to quarries). I Kings Courted a Kings Court. Played a Market. Took 3 cards, played a third Kings Court. My husband gave up at that point and let me try to figure it out on my own. How does this play out?

KC1 played...
...plays KC2 three times
First play of KC2 plays Market, drawing 3 cards and getting +3 Actions, +3 Buys and +3 Coins.
Second play of KC2 plays KC3 three times.

You first resolve the three plays of KC3 - playing three actions three times each - and then resolve the third play of KC2.

Useful guide: you have a chain of N King's courts, each targeting King's Court, you will be able to triple 2*N-1 non-King's Court actions. So if you have King's Court playing King's Court playing King's Court (N=3), you can triple 5 actions. The first KC plays the second KC. The second KC plays the third KC and two more actions. The third KC plays three more actions.

Jack forgot the +3 cards. So the KC-Market would give you +3 Cards, +3 Actions, +3 Buys, +3 Coins.

(Also, this thread should be in General Discussion or Rules Questions.)

Also, note that KCing a Market doesn't give you +3 Cards, +3 Actions, +3 Buys, and +$3 in that order.  What actually happens is +1 Card, +1 Action, +1 Buy, +$1, +1 Card, +1 Action, +1 Buy, +$1, +1 Card, +1 Action, +1 Buy, +$1.

Which is not particularly relevant in the specific case of Market, but matters for some other cards.
