What is Kings and Things ?

Kings and Things is a famous board game created in the 80's.
This version is a PC adaptation to play with your friends over internet (or lan).
This is a free adaptation, so try to buy the real board game if you like it (but I think it is not published anymore).
You can play up to 4 players.

This game is based on a simple Board Game Engine named 'HOBOGO'.
I'll try to release HOBOGO soon.

  • F12 : Connect to server (an another player).
  • F5 : Quick Save.
  • F9 : Quick Load.
  • F3 : Resynch all Players (in case of synchronization bug).
  • Drag a Piece to move it.
  • Shift + Drag : to move decks/zones/dice boxes.
