Description Edit | History

In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens – all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.

At the start of each turn, you roll six dice. The dice show the following six symbols: 1, 2, or 3 Victory Points, Energy, Heal, and Attack. Over three successive throws, choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to win victory points, gain energy, restore health, or attack other players into understanding that Tokyo is YOUR territory.

The fiercest player will occupy Tokyo, and earn extra victory points, but that player can't heal and must face all the other monsters alone!

Top this off with special cards purchased with energy that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional die, body armor, nova death ray, and more.... and it's one of the most explosive games of the year!

In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 victory points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.

3 Kot + expansions foam core insert
All the measures are in millimetres [mm]. If you are not very precise when making this inserts, I suggest you take 1-2 mm off trays measures. Measures of base tray have been corrected. Everything should be OK now.

4 Ralph, from the city destroying videogame Rampage!
I thought it would be a great idea to bring one of the characters from the video game series Rampage into King of Tokyo. Of the original three monsters from the series (George, Lizzy, Ralph), I decided to go with Ralph because King of Tokyo already has a giant ape and lizard. I decided to use the graphics from Rampage: World Tour as it's probably the Rampage game most people played back in the day. I will be working on evolution cards for him soon. Enjoy!
