KING OF TOKYO BOARD GAME

King of Tokyo is a fast-paced king of the hill dice combat strategy game. The game takes the theme of the classic Tokyo monsters like in that old game Rampage (but without saying it probably for copyright reasons). Players can play as monsters such as Gigazor, Cyber Kitty, Space Penguin or a giant ape known as The King.

The game ends when one monster reaches 20 points or is the last one standing. You get points for trying to take Tokyo, but then you also experience the wrath of all the other players. There are a few decisions to make and you need to make them fast. Make your decision and leave it up to a Yahtzee roll of the dice.
