You’ve obsessed over the British Royals, rolled out of bed at all hours of the night to tune into the broadcasts of their weddings, and now, their (illustrated) faces will grace your board game collection.
This summer, Laurence King Publishing is releasing Royal Bingo, a fun twist on the classic game we know and love. This new set features 64 international royal icons, including well-known British royals like Prince William, Prince Andrew, and Queen Elizabeth II, along with less familiar faces such as Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei, Queen Rania of Jordan, and Rainier III, Prince of Monaco.
The full-color game board is illustrated by Holly Exley, an illustrator and watercolorist who works and lives in the United Kingdom.
Also included in the set is an accompanying booklet with biographical details about each royal, including fun facts about their personalities, political achievements and foibles, and details of their romantic lives. With all this fun information, you can bring your royal obsession to the next level.
Another adorable detail is the marker pieces for the game, which are small gold crowns instead of the traditional marker chips.
Royal Bingo is suitable for ages six and up, and can accommodate up to six players, although there are 12 different bingo boards so you can change up the game every round.
