Quick Takes: 2-4 players 15-30 minutes Ages 8+ Level 1 (easy to learn, easy to play and FUN!)About the game:
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.
