Having other players in your game is a great way to share your success, motivate you to tackle that next level and give and receive help by sharing lives.
If you save your game to a King profile, you'll see other King players. Only player avatars and nicknames are visible to each other. These players can help by sending you extra lives or helping you at roadblocks. It's completely anonymous and you can choose whether to interact with these players or not.
If you play connected to Facebook, your Facebook friends who play the game will also appear in the high score lists and on the game map. In some games, a few extra King players will also appear, but again, they can only see your player avatar and nickname.
Some of our games use a blend of Kingdom and Facebook so you may often see a combination of your Facebook friends alongside the randomly generated Kingdom players.
