▍ About Dokapon Kingdom: Connect
Once upon a time, there was a kingdom named Dokapon where the people enjoyed nothing more than their money. The sight of its golden glimmer, the comforting clink of a full wallet, the metallic taste of a freshly minted coin. Everyone in the kingdom loved cash, even more than the king himself.
One day, monsters appeared out of nowhere and attacked the towns of Dokapon Kingdom. These monsters took from the common folk, making it impossible for the common folk to even pay their taxes.
The King, moved to tears by the plight of his people and his income, called upon heroes from far and wide to free his people from the monsters. The reward? His daughter’s hand in marriage, and to be next in line for the throne!
The rules are simple. Up to four players play on a grid with the goal to earn more money than anyone else. Each player takes on the role of a hero from an RPG archetype, and has to stop a spinner to determine how many steps they can take along a board.
As you stop on a node, you’ll trigger encounters such as fighting monsters, picking up items, and treasures, and can even change jobs. Along the way, you can even sabotage your friends by stealing their money!
