King Of New York
There is always something happening in the never sleeping city- New York. Maybe it's the lights, maybe it's the energy, or maybe it's the giant monsters trying to demolish the place! The King of New York, is not a game in which players just compete against each other, they also destroy buildings and compete against the military onslaughts.
King of New York is a standalone game from designer Richard Garfield that keeps the core ideas ofKing of Tokyo while introducing new ways to play. As in KoT, your goal is to be the first monster to collect 20 victory points (VPs) or to be the last monster standing. On your turn, you roll six dice up to three times, then carry out the actions on those dice. Claws cause damage to other monsters, hearts heal damage to yourself, and energy is stored up so that you can purchase power cards that provide unique effects not available to anyone else.
What's new in King of New York is that you can now try to become a star in the big city; more specifically, you can achieve "Fame", which nets you VPs, but superstar status is fleeting, so enjoy your time in the spotlight.
The game board for King of New York is larger than in KoT with each monster occupying a district in the city and everyone trying to shine in Manhattan. When you attack, you can displace a monster in another district, whether to escape military forces or to find new smashing opportunities. Yes, smashing because you can now destroy buildings and get bonuses for doing so, but the more destruction you cause, the more intense the military response.
The monsters from King of New York can be used in KoT and vice versa, but the power cards are specific to this game. If your family likes rolling dice, attacking each other, and using special powers then, Yes, your whole family will enjoy King of New York. You are a giant monster, and you want to become King of New York! Compete against other immense creatures, and destroy everything in your path. In order to win, attack your enemies, crush high-rises, buy new abilities, become a star, and keep an eye on the army: the humans haven't thrown in the towel yet.
