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.
