    Crown Red is played on an eleven by eleven board. Each space is either a white or black circle. The goal is to be the first player to move their crowned king onto the red home space opposite from where it started.

Each player starts with one uncrowned king and two pawns. On each turn a player moves one piece 5 spaces in order that the gravity selector shows.

The gravity selector contains ten black or white marbles in a clear column with a red base. At the beginning of a turn the player inverts the gravity selector and then returns it to its upright position. For example, the selector shows WBBWB. A piece must be moved first to a white circle. Next to a black circle and so on. A piece can be moved forward, backward or sideways.

Before a king can moved home, he must possess a red crown (small red marble). A king earns a crown when the player captures an opponents piece. Kings can be captured which results in the king losing its crown and returns to its start position.
