Kingdomino: Age of Giants Game
Giants have settled in your kingdom, and like all vagrants, they're decreasing real-estate values! This expansion adds new "giant" dominoes, challenge tiles, and components for a 5th player to join in any game of Kingdomino or Queendomino. Taking a tile with a giant on it forces you to cover up a crown in your kingdom with a token, decreasing its value. If you take a tile with footsteps, you can give the token to an opponent! Additionally, end-game bonuses are replaced with "challenge tiles" for accomplishing specific goals. Requires (and compatible with) Kingdomino and Queendomino.
Age of Giants is an expansion for Kingdomino or Queendomino. It adds more challenges, more player interaction, and allows for a fifth player to join in on the game. Choose a tile with a giant, then add a giant meeple to your kingdom- it covers up any crown of your choosing. Choose a tile with a giant's footsteps, then pass one giant meeple from your kingdom to another player, who then must cover up a crown in their own kingdom. Covered crowns do not score points. End of game bonuses are eliminated, instead, before the start of each game, players must draw 2 challenge tiles. These provide additional ways to get points. For example, get 5 bonus points for each lake tile that surrounds your castle, and get 20 bonus points if your castle is located in one of the 4 corners of your kingdom.
This clever domino-style tile game is fantastic for families! Each piece is a numbered tile with each half representing a combination of grassland, wheat, forest, sea, or mountain. In each round, tiles are drawn and arranged in numerical order. Players take turns claiming tiles. Beginning with the player who claimed the lowest-ranked tile, players add the tiles to their kingdom, placing it next to their Castle or a tile with a matching landscape. Then, a player places their king on the next set of tiles and the cycle continues. The player with the most valuable tile picks last in the next round. When a player finishes his 5x5 kingdom, scores are counted, and the player with the most points wins. The clever mechanics, simple premise, and colorful illustrations ensure that the whole family can get in on this delightful game! For 2-4 players; 15 minutes.
