King Of Tokyo
Tokyo has been besieged by monsters! Revel in this theme-heavy game and use your dice to defeat your opponents to be crowned the King of Tokyo! Richard Garfield offers us a crazy game in which you will be able to play mutant monsters, gigantic robots and other monstrous creatures, all of whom are happily whacking each other in a joyous atmosphere in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.
In King of Tokyo you take on the role of one of six monsters intent on destroying Tokyo, but you don’t share well with others. When it is your turn to play, you throw six dice. Each die bears the following six symbols: 1, 2 or 3 Points of Destruction, Energy, Healing and Whack. In three successive throws, you are going to choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to come up with combinations that will enable you to win destruction points, hoard energy, restore your health or whack other players into understanding Tokyo is YOUR territory.
When another monster is in Tokyo, you can attack them in an attempt to move into Tokyo. When you’re in Tokyo, you can attack all of your opponents. Of course, what good is being a monster if you can’t have super powers? As the game progresses, you can spend energy to buy power ups to aid in your conquest.
The fiercest player will be crowned King of Tokyo... and will end up facing all the other monsters alone!
Top this off with special cards that you can purchase with energy and that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional dice, body armor, nova death ray, and more... and you hold one of the most explosive games of the year!
In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 destruction points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.
