In this weeks gag reel for Once Upon a Time Wil Wheaton announced that King of Tokyo will be next weeks game.

So what do people think of this? I think the game is a good fit for the show because of all the silliness that will likely ensue!

That's going to be one very short episode.

Unless they're going to another filler episode like the Zombie Dice/Get Bit/Whatever the other thing was episode from Season 1.

In which case, what other fillers do you think, or wish, will be featured?

I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

With 5-6 players it can run an hour or more. I suspect it'll be more of a full depiction of the game with fewer cuts. Great choice for the series. KoT deserves more love and promotion.

Jeez. I should go buy this game before that episode airs. Otherwise I won't be able to buy it until next year.

KoT is a great game. I've used it as a gateway game for non gamers. My daughter loves to swap out the monsters with Skylander Giants.

The game is way more fun than I expected it to be. Having played it nearly a dozen times this year makes it my most played game (so far) of 2013. Non-gamers that I've played it with love it, and it's easy to figure out.

Should be a fun episode to watch.

Definitely top 5 of our game list... Even better with the expansion. Pick up your copy now if you're debating it, cause after next week it will be sold out for sure!

I thought x-wing was coming out on Tabletop?
I'm cool with KOT also
great game, but very fast one, I imagine there might be another filler game also with it

They were supposed to air the X-wing episode last week but they pushed it back. While no reason was given they did say that they had something "very special" planned for that episode.

With the intro time, some rules explanation, the interviews, and the Losers' Couch & Winner's Wall segments, that should get it to around the 25-minute episode length.

I just introduced KoT to my brother-in-law tonight and the first thing he wanted to do after finishing up the first game was play it again. Will be looking forward to the episode tomorrow.
