A couple of months ago I introduced Dominion to my work colleagues. Since then it has become the office's official lunch break game. Everyone loves it but playing everyday is getting repetitive.
I want to buy something else for the office break but I've been trying to decide on either get Quarriors! or King of Tokyo.
Which one would you choose?

Depends on how much time you have.

King of Tokyo is super quick and fun. It's a dice combat game, where you get 3 rolls to roll the results you want. Totally different than Quarriors.

Quarriors is fun too, but not quite as fast. Similar to Dominion in some ways. Combat feels a little similar to Magic The Gathering.

I enjoy both. Less thought involved in King of Tokyo, but it also made my game group cheer loudly as two of us got great rolls back to back.

I've only played each one a handful of times. Replay value might be questionable.

Buy both and alternate between the two?

I'm glad I own both, they are different enough to me to make it worth it.

Get both, but if I had to pick one, maybe King of Tokyo. It plays with more people, and it's a completely different kind of game. Quarriors is based on Dominion, so if people are sick of that, Quarriors might not be enough of a difference.

King of Tokyo you can't go wrong. I was originally going to pass on it, but my friend swore it would be awesome even without playing it.

Lo and behold, he was right!

Awesome game!

My vote for King of Tokyo also if for no other reason than you stated you guys already have Dominion under your belt for some time now. Change it up with KOT.
