To celebrate the release of the first expansion for King of Tokyo, IELLO invited Richard Garfield to Essen. He will be writing different powers and signing the exclusive Garfield's Gift promo card at our booth (9-74) on thursday 18th, friday 19h and saturday 20th from 11 a.m. to noon and from 4 to 6 p.m.

Do you already have an idea of what never-seen-before power you'll be asking for?

Will you have to buy the expansion in order to have the card signed?

Each time an opponent indulges in kibbitzing, take 2 energy from them.

So jealous.

Any dice that fall off the table cannot be rerolled that turn and are considered blank. The monster controlled by a player who throws dice on the floor loses 1[heart].

Man, that's pretty darned cool. I wonder if he'd make me a special promo card if I kidna-- hang on, parole officer's calling.

After an opponent has finished their rerolls, but before any card or dice effects have resolved, you may declare their turn a 'playtest.' They begin the turn again. If you do so, discard this card.

So wish I could get one of these even though I'm not going to Essen...

If any player is not paying attention to the game, pay 1 energy (per targeted player) to cause them to lose 1 (heart).

I would have Mr Garfield write:

"Pick another player at random. That player then has to make you a cup of Tea."

Inspired by a card from Citadels:

Whenever you enter Tokyo, all other players must shout "long live the King / Queen" or lose 1 Victory point (star). As long as your character remains in Tokyo, you are to be addressed as "Your Majesty", any player who fails to do so loses 1 Victory point.

Draw one power card from the top of the deck for each player in the game (including yourself). Choose one of those power cards to give each player in the game (including yourself). Discard this card after use.


A bit literal, but a cool gift from Garfield.

Discard to bring an eliminated player back into the game. They have 0 VP's, 10 HP's, 0 energy and 0 cards. You gain 5 VP's.

If the owner of this card wins the game, they get to choose what game is played next.

Oeh I really like this one hehehe, maybe make it 6 vp

Although, apart from the vp, you don't gain anything from it .

I came up with Discard to switch monsters with another player, and At the beginning of their turn opponents must give you one of their energy cubes, if able. I like the idea of handing out powers to all players as well... Tough decision!

All dead players become ghosts and can roll once during their turn. Ghosts can buy cards, and damage all living players except the holder of this card.

I thought of this one too!

But it would be ignored

I can't come up with a decent idea

Would be ignored? How come?? Don't your players follow 'official' Garfield signed rules??? Shame on them for not heeding the master!

How about: "The first player to be damaged by a monster holding this card has to supply beverages for the rest of the evening?"

Can't imagine such a rule would be ignored laugh

cheers!

I think he means ignored, because who would spend 5 to bring back more opponents? There is no upside.

No.


What does that mean exactly? Wouldn't you need to make a purchase to have the card in the first place?
