If you were to make a King of some city in Europe game, where would you set it and what monsters would you include?

At first I thought Paris because you could have the monsters attacking the Eiffel Tower. I also thought maybe Berlin because of the German connection with board games. Rome might be interesting with all its ancient landmarks and being close to water. But I can't help but think London would make the most sense since its both close to water (I think that's key given the Godzilla origin of the game) and that it has so many iconic landmarks, maybe more than any city in the world.

But I'm at a complete loss for what monsters to include. I know North American monsters well and even Godzilla ones, but I don't know European monsters that well. I guess you could go with a giant bat (vampire), a giant wolf (werewolves), and a Frankenstein like monster, but what else?

I think the first major requirement is that the location must not be landlocked.

Some people in a town in France (not even a big town) created this:



Forget about Paris, Rome or other fancy cities, monsters are attacking the capital of mustard

Some European Monsters/Creatures:

- Loch Ness Monster
- Dragons
- Gnomes, Leprechauns, Dwarves, Nibelungen
- Jötnar (Giants)
- Gargoyles
- White Ladies/Dame Blanche (no, not the ice cream!)
- Baba Yaga/Black Annis
- Mermaids
- Cyclops

And probably a lot more...

Just look at the Greek/Roman/Celtic/Norse/German mythology.

I think that London would be the (for at least a few years more)'European' equivalent of Tokyo (Asia) and New York (USA).

Dublin would be good - with banshees, giants, trolls, selkies, witches, etc.

I made a King of Winnipeg version. It's pretty fun to smash the town where you're living.

If they make a King of London, it has to be a Doctor Who themed one. Daleks, Cybermen, The Master, etc.

Another option would be King of Athens or Rome and have Roman or Greek gods fighting each other.

The green energy cubes are backed by the EU.
In light of this Monsters will not be going to London.

Sorry

Probably better to make it a King of Europe actually. Especially if the gameboard has sections like the KoN one. That way you could add a couple of cities as places to fight in. As for the main one. Puh - that one is really hard. Maybe as most monsters would be rather mythological pick something wacky as well. Like Atlantis. Or Stonehenge.
