MOON RIVER: Kingdomino without dominoes. Or is it?

Post by DrClick »

Expand the land you just inherited along the famous Moon River: corn fields, meadows, forests… Explore the area and locate the best plots of land to harness their valuable resources and help your herds thrive. But the Wild West is ruthless! Beware of outlaws, thieves, and droughts as you expand the most fruitful lands in the country!

In the game, you will build a personal landscape of tiles to score points, but instead of tiling dominoes in your landscape, the game uses half-dominoes in which one edge has a jigsaw puzzle-style connection. You combine two of these half puzzle pieces to craft your own dominoes. This mechanism is meant to provide more variability and randomization in each play.

Instead of building your landscape around a central castle, you start from the river and expand away from it. Also, the crowns (i.e., the victory point multiplier) from Kingdomino are replaced by cow meeples, with players being able to use cowboys to move them.

Whether you like Kingdomino or not, Moon River offers a different feel over the domino-building area. So why not check it by clicking the link below? Games are short and you might discover your new favorite here:

We absolutely need to thank the Blue Orange team for giving their authorization to publish the game on Board Game Arena, but let's not forget that nothing would have been possible without the help of the game designers, Bruno Cathala & Yohan Servais. Love and kudos to them!

Also, nothing would be playable online without the work from a developer, and this adaptation is all up to adrienle38. And that's all thanks to his dedication that you can play Moon River on pretty much any device!

That's it for today!!
Which game has your preferences? Kingdomino ? QueenDomino? Or Moon River?
Let us know in the comments... until next week.
Take care and play fair!
