Ok so my boys and I love King of Tokyo so this list is nothing more than a record of our good time stomping fun through the great city of Japan.

We will also be able to track monster victories and our own victories as games unfold.

All plays are using the Power Up! expansion.

Game 1

It was Pandakai up against Kraken, Alienoid and Mecha Dragon.

The game was quick as the boys were too focused on gaining Evolutions and I was able to quickly accrue victory points to take a VP win.

Pandakai...Winner!

Had access to -

Jets
Eater of the Dead
Gourmet

This meant I could leave Tokyo without any wounds, gain health when other monsters died and rolling 3 ones earned 2 points instead of one.

Pandakai also used Eats, Shoots and Leaves to take out Kraken.

Dad - Winner!!!

Game 2

Pandakai retired to sleep and this time it was Kraken up against Alienoid, Alienoid, Giga Zaur and Mecha Dragon.

This time the game was to the death and a few of us stayed longer in Tokyo than was really prudent...

Kraken...Winner!

Had access to -

Gourmet

So nothing really special here...he just timed his attacks well.

Kraken used Wave of Ruin to take out a couple competitors to reign supreme.

Isaac - Winner!!!

Game 3

Kraken was back to defend his title against Giga Zaur, Alienoid and Mecha Dragon.

This game also went to the death in a brutal no holds barred slug-a-thon. Once again the menace of the deep strode out of Tokyo Bay to take all before him

Kraken...Winner!

Had access to -

Reflective Hide
Alien Metabolism
Freeze Time
Super Jump

Kraken was able to deal damage via his reflective hide, reduce damage using its Super Jump and used Alien Metabolism to reduce the cost of new abilities. Freeze Time wasn't utilised.

Kraken used Terror of the Deep, High Tide and Wave of Ruin again. A highly evolved crayfish indeed and Isaac went back to back.

Isaac - Winner!!!

Game 4

Game 4 saw a couple of new entrants on the streets of the Rising Sun as Cyber Bunny and The King took on Giga Zaur and Mecha Dragon. This game was all about stopping Issac from taking the 3-peat.

This game was a mixed bag as Giga Zaur was felled and the other three fought it out on points. Cyber Bunny looked to have had it won with a wonderful combo of powers but despite his access to Poison Spines, Mecha Dragon came over the top with an 8 point VP grab thanks to four 3s and destroying a Skyscraper.

Mecha Dragon...Winner!

Had access to -

Burrowing

A nasty ability that allowed the Dragon to deal damage on his way in and out of Tokyo.

Lightning Armour
Target Acquired
Programmed to Destroy
Tune-Up
Mecha Blast

But the win was really built on the back of his many Evolutionary upgrades that allowed him to target foes, deal damage to attackers and gained health and energy when Giga Zaur was no more.

Amazingly Isaac won this one too and took our first King of Tokyo day with 3 wins out of 4.

Isaac - Winner!!!

Game 5

Game 5 and the boys and I were joined by cousin Wade to continue the fun.

This bout saw Cyber Bunny up against Pandakai, Alienoid, Kraken and The King. This one had a somewhat slow pace with players pursuing Evolutions and not pulling them off. In the end the Bunny Evolved his way to victory...

Cyber Bunny...Winner!

Had access to -

No Power Cards whatsoever

But the Bunny made sure the Cyber was well and truly evident and used his powers to perfection...

Lupine Power Blade
Electric Carrot
Prince with 1000 Enemies

The rabbit used his Power Blade to perfection, menacing Tokyo and wounding us once he was in the city. Pandakai fell to this devastation and the Electric Carrot kept people energy poor and he forced dice re-rolls to create a thousand enemies.

This was all too much and Isaac...BLOODY ISAAC...took yet another win on VPs this time.

Isaac - Winner!!!

Game 6

Not content to finish on an Isaac win we went again. This time Cyber Bunny looked to defend his win and Isaac was in charge of him again...gulp

Up against the rabbit was Pandakai, The King, Alienoid and Giga Zoid.

This one was a brutal attacking affair. Alienoid and Cyber Bunny evolved to good effect whilst Giga Zaur acauired Nova Breath, making him a threat to all.

Pandakai was first to fall to an attack from The King and soon after Giga Zaur left himself exposed and the ape went 2-0 but not before Giga Zaur used Nova Breath to end Cyber Bunny. Suddenly it was David v Goliath.

Alienoid was using his Superior Alien Technology to his advantage and was able to keep The King weak enough that all he could do was heal and Alienoid romped to his first win, via the VP path.

Alienoid...Winner!

Had access to -

Armour Plating
Solar Powered
Complete Destruction
Poison Quills

Those last two powers were used to little effect but Solar Powered certainly kept Alienoid with at least one energy and this combines well with Mothership support to keep his health up for most of the game. But it was the Eater of the Dead card that gave Alienoid the edge as he gained 6 VPs when The King killed of both Pandakai and Giga Zaur.

Exotic Arms
Mothership Support
Superior Alien Technology
Adapting Technology

Exotic Arms were used to sweep Cyber Bunny aside but it was Alienid's tech powers, being able to sweep the options and then buy at half price that proved a lethal combination. Our guest Wade took his first win.

Wade - Winner!!!

Game 7

Another weekend and Tokyo was under threat again.

This time round Cyber Bunny took on Meka Dragon, Pandakai and The King.

This was a pretty even race and it looked like it was going to be a race to the VPs all the way.

All 4 combatants were in it except maybe Meka Dragon who kept chipping away at all other players health thanks to his Breath of Doom.

But it was Cyber Bunny that essentially evolved his way to victory. Having amassed a huge array of powers thanks to hiss Rabbit Laboratory making powers cheaper, the Bunny took control of Tokyo and hung in long enough to get another turn in their and deal a mega 5 damage to everyone, reducing all other monsters to 2 health.

The King was forced into Tokyo where Pandakai took him down. The bear managed to survive one turn but Cyber Bunny then took him out and despite Meka Dragon having one shot to finish off the rabbit, Cyber Bunny used his Omnivore power to take the VP win.

Cyber Bunny...Winner!

Had access to -

Throw a Tanker
We're Only Making it Stronger
Made in a Lab
Omnivore
Freeze Time
Monster Sidekick

Throw a Tanker was key here, offering up 2 VPs whenever I dealt 3 or more damage...making it enticing to attack. We're Only Making it Stronger was great on a couple of occasions as it earned me bonus energy when I took a whack. Combine that with Made in a Lab, which allows me to look at the top card of the deck when making purchasing decisions and I had a 4 card option on each of my turns, which helped me buy Freeze Time and Omnivore.

Freeze Time offered me the coup de gras move as I was able to roll three 1s and a 2,3 allowing me a bonus turn and 2 VPs with Omnivore.

Electric Carrot
Rabbit Laboratory

The final parts of this puzzle were the two evolutions. Electric Carrot (we called it the butt carrot!) saw me earn additional energy early on to fund my purchases and once I got the Laboratory I could pay one less energy for each power card...hence my awesome array of options.

Dad - Winner!!!

Game 8

The Cyber Bunny came back to defend his title up against Alienoid, Kraken and Pandakai.

Dad was feeling pumped after his first up win and in the first turn took 6 VPs when Alienoid rolled six 3s!!!

And was then killed by Cyberbunny when charged up his Lupine Power Blade and made Alienoid pay for overstaying its welcome in Tokyo. This took all of about 6 minutes.

Next to fall was Pandakai when he too overextended and Kraken rose from the sea to menace the great city.

So it was that Kraken and Cyber Bunny traded blows but the rabbit sneaked his way to 16, earned the vital one energy he was lacking and brought down a Skyscraper to win the game and go 2-0 for the weekend!

Cyber Bunny...Winner!

Had access to -

Reflective Hide

The hide was a useful power that helped keep other players vulnerable and it was indeed a big of backblow combined with a powered up Power Blade that saw a seemingly safe Alienoid bite the dust.

Lupine Power Blade
Electric Carrot
The Man who Dies with the Most Toys Wins

In truth the win was not the result of any particular Power or Evolutionary Trait. Instead players simply overextended in this one and Kraken didn't have the claws to deal with the furball on his own. Isaac takes another win.

Isaac - Winner!!!
