In Kingdomino, you are a Lord seeking new lands in which to expand your kingdom. You must explore all the lands, wheat fields, lakes, and mountains in order to spot the best plots. But be careful as some other Lords also covet these lands...
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 game mechanics for obtaining the tiles is clever: the order of who picks first depends on which tile was previously chosen. 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.

I am always on the lookout for games to play with young kids that are still fun for adults and Kingdomino
ticks all the boxes. Games are fast (~15mins), simple rules, there is some luck and some elements of
strategy but not so complex that adults have an unfair advantage. My 5 year old daughter enjoys playing
and still manages to beat me and her older brother which is awesome.
Kingdomino is such an intuitive and streamlined game, draft tiles, make big areas with as many crowns as possible, score big points. Kingdomino is playable by anyone and this makes it a great game to bridge generations; the concepts are easily accessible enough that it can be played by young primary aged children and the game itself is robust enough that adults will happily play alongside them.
