King-domino?
Kingdom-ee-no?
King-do-mee-no?

What's the official pronunciation?

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

I have no idea what the official pronunciation is.
However, if you pronounce it any way other than King-domino you are obviously wrong

Kingdom-ino might also be acceptable. Although I think this is a slightly different game about a kingdom ruled by a dinosaur (aka dino).

I've been saying the second but I suspect the first is the intended one.

I say the first two syllables like "Kingdom" and the last two like the second half of "domino", because that points out how the pun in the name doesn't actually work.

It's like the Snowlets, who were the mascot of the 1998 Winter Olympics. Whether you say it to rhyme with "Wow-lets" or "Whoa-lets", half of the pun is gone.

My friend says "King Domino" because that's the most sensible way I guess.
