Kingdomino is a 2-4 player strategy game that plays like dominoes with a kingdom-building twist. Each turn you will connect a new domino to your existing kingdom, making sure that at least one of its sides connects to a matching element already in play.

Make sure to include dominoes with crowns on them, because at the end of the game you will score points equal to the total number of matching elements multiplied by the number of crowns.

  • This was the first game my wife and I played together. It's a simple, and easy to learn game. We like the spacial element to this game, and the simple scoring mechanics (number of matching tiles by type multiplied by the number of crowns for that type) For us, the 5x5 base game quickly became repetitive, and felt lacking in strategy. My wife and I now play exclusively with the 7x7 grid, and add bonuses for a perfect square (5 points), and center castle (5 points), which makes the game even more challenging and strategic, increasing the replayability. In particular, now that we are familiar with all of the tiles (and started to memorize the tile numbers), we prefer the additional strategy at 7x7 of being able to plan our base designs around the remaining, undrawn tiles.
  • BGA. Cute game. Enough to think about to be interesting, simple enough that anyone could probably learn it. Not sure about its longevity.
  • It's a little like Carcassonne, but:-Kingdomino is much, much quicker and with much simpler rules -in spite of that, it is a much deeper game-the themeing and art of Kingdomino makes Carcassonne look like it's dripping with theme!Considerably drier than Carcassone; but for what you get in the game, Kingdomino is probably the best filler out there!

I own both #Kingdomino and #King of Tokyo and they are both excellent family games! Kingdomino is even good for a really quick game for gamers, so I like that one a lot.

I'm grateful for my relatively small collection, but all games require me to be in a specific mood to want to play it, so I still want more games to cover all my moods, if that makes sense.

I think my collection somewhat covers all categories, in terms of eurogames and ameritrash games, and cooperative and competitive.

I've had my eye on #Root for a while because this webiste raves how good the game is, and I don't have much games with direct conflict. My most family and non-nerd game is #Escape: Zombie City, so I'd like to get #Kingdomino and #King of Tokyo

Alright here goes nothing..for simplicity sake, I left off the one's I've played either no games from or games that I didn't particularly enjoy.

After all that, I can safely say I don't particularly care about designers haha. I was surprised I knew a couple of them off the top of my head.

Lists are fun!  Some of these categories are a bit tricky but here's what I came up with:

How old are your princesses?  (referencing a previous photo I saw)  And how's the game introducing going?  I have been collecting some games with an eye towards playing them with my kids when they get older, although I guess they may be terribly out of date by then considering they're only 3 and 10 months.  I have #Catan: Junior, #Pirate Den, #Kingdomino, #Splendor aaand a bunch of others probably.  #Animal Upon Animal I've already introduced.  I bought one game with marbles and test tubes that I forget the name of but I let her play with the marbles and now they're all gone haha. 

Every year I buy a game for the family. Last year it was#Kingdomino. The year before that it was#Catan: Junior. And then we try to play a game sometime during the day. This year I'm going to grab#Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle. Hope it goes well!

This is a relatively new tradition (obviously) but it's been fun so far. As a kid growing up I don't have any specific holiday board game traditions unfortunately. 

Congratulations! LOL How could you tell?

The only game my dad ever really enjoyed with me was #Kingdomino so you should give that one a try. Probably not nerdy enough for you though

#Draftosaurus is a really good family game. I have a three year old boy that also play it with myself, my daughter and wife. Although, the three year needs help and often doesn't place his dino-meeples in optimal places, but he has a lot of fun playing with those dino-meeples.

As far as other my daught enjoys ...
