Kingdomino is the next board game hit to get a roll-and-write spin-off

Bruno Cathala’s Spiel des Jahres-winning tile-laying hit Kingdomino is spinning out into a roll-and-write game later this year.

Kingdomino Duel is the second standalone follow-up to Kingdomino, after 2017’s slightly more complex Queendomino, which added buildings to the mix and could be used as an expansion for the original game for bigger boards or more players. A Kingdomino expansion, Age of Giants, was released last year, adding extra dominoes, giant tokens and enough stuff for a fifth person to play.

As the name suggests, Kingdomino Duel is a two-player-only affair. Like in Kingdomino and Queendomino, the players are completing a grid of dominos to score points – the trick here is that the dominos are created by rolling two dice, which combine into a single ‘tile’ to draw on the board. 

Also new to the gameplay are spells gained from wizards, which trigger special abilities for each player. 

Kingdomino Duel plays in around 20 minutes – making it closer to its namesake than the slightly longer Queendomino – and will be released at Gen Con this August.
