Dominoes with a kingdom building twist. Each turn, connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure at least one of its sides connects to a matching terrain type already in play.
The object of the game is to build a kingdom in a 5x5 grid consisting of various land types, wheat fields, pastures, forests, mines, lakes, and mountains in order to score prestige points. Some tiles are more valuable than others so players will be competing with each other for the prime lands. This is performed by drafting dominoes from a lineup and adding them one at a time over the course of several rounds.
The game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. The order for the next turn is based on the last turn’s choices. So, if you take the best tile, you’ll be picking last in the next turn.
Make sure to secure tiles with crowns- these royal treasures help to multiply the worth of your kingdom at the end of the game!
The game ends when each player has completed a 5x5 grid, and then points are counted based on number of connecting tiles and crowns.
