Plays quick and easy to teach. I like the artwork of the tiles and how the tiles fit together so well. I will be playing many more times in the future.After playing this game more I bumped it up to a 10. This is one of the best games I have played.
Played a handful of times with 2-4 players and it's an enjoyable game, but my son doesn't really like it, so have traded it away to make room for other games. Could buy it again cheaply and so I did. Let's see if it will get some playtime.
Expansions: - Age of Giants A very fast back and forth tile laying game where you try to match up similar terrains in order to get the most points. There's a neat little extra challenge where if you keep your castle tile in the middle of your tableau, you get additional points.

But can play with kids so it’s value is great for family games nights April 2019 $11.99
Fantastic little game that packs a surprising amount of strategy into such a simple concept! Purchased as a family game to play with my 5 & 7-year-old, but have thoroughly enjoyed playing with my wife as well, and I expect it will make a very nice filler or gateway choice. Gameplay is very quick, which often leaves us saying "let's play one more!" Awesome artwork adds to the appeal, along with the extremely high-quality components you'd expect from Blue Orange Games. Bonus: The tiles also serve as an expansion for Queendomino, which we also own.
I assumed this would fall off after I played Queendomino, but Kingdomino is just about the perfect little filler game. Still certainly possible that I'll lose interest in the coming year as I get more plays of its big sister, but for now, this is a keeper.
An excellent game that deserves it's accolades. The game play is super quick and clever. The variable turn order is brilliant. I have never taught this game and had the players dislike it.
Very light. It would be a decent game with a couple changes: 1) allowing players to see the tiles coming up on the next round, 2) making the caves less valuable. Without the 1st, it's very difficult to strategize piece placement and falls prey to luck of the draw. Without the 2nd, the player with the most caves usually just wins.
The hyper light, hyper fast cousin to Isle of Skye. Trades the complex scoring and economy system for a speculative draft that just works. Phenomenal production for its price point. Enjoyable at every player count. Deserves its Spiel nod.
This game is "fine," not great. I find that the gameplay feels repetitive and more-or-less mechanical with the base game scoring goals and bonuses. I would definitely get Age of Giants to add to the scoring strategies and change it up. This one does not get much play as is. Update 12/23/18: Gave away to a board gaming friend that really enjoyed his first play.
This game is a super quick and fun filler! It can be taught really quickly, and has a good amount of replay-ability in my opinion. In such a small box, its easy to bring wherever as well.
I love playing this game with my 5yo daughter. It doesn't require any reading and she plays extremely well. Even my mother, who hates playing games, had fun playing this one. The only knock is that it's very light and most gamers would prefer Queendomino over this one.
I really fun, light, fast game. The spacial aspects and tile choosing is great. The component quality is fantastic. The little touch of the 3D castles if fun, totally unnecessary, but great.
The appeal for Kingdomino is quickly apparent after opening the box and perusing the rules. The game is incredibly quick to learn and play, and a strong candidate for a rinse-and-repeat session. The twelve rounds are enough to temper the luck factor to an acceptable level, and the puzzle of containing your kingdom to a 5x5 grid is satisfying. Players must balance flexible growth with point generating terrain specificity. Its too quick and simple to excite me, but I'd understand if I am in the minority.
(11/17) 7. A light tile laying/drafting game that has a bunch of interesting choices and plays extremely quickly. A really good choice for the Spiel des Jares as I can see this being a hit with families. Very fun and accessible.
