  •   King of the Hill (KOTH)
    Ever wondered what this KOTH is all about? Well, wonder no more.

    KOTH is short for King of the Hill, a silly game played by kids the world over. Our version involves chess, of course. You claim to be king of the hill, and its up to every one else to take your crown.
  • To see the currently available "Kings", type mam lk
  • To have mamer keep you up to date on koth activity, type mam set kothinfo
  • To claim an empty throne, type mam claimthrone
  • Finally, to challenge a current king, type mam matchking
    Type mam help koth for a list of the rules. Why not give it a go?
