In King of Tokyo you play as ginormous robots, weird aliens and spoooky monsters with a singular objective – to destroy Tokyo. Also to beat up your opponents to be the King. Of Tokyo. So like, twogular objectives? Something like that. The point is you're a big baddie doing damage! Each turn you get three rolls of six dice which determine your actions – heal up, destroy a part of Tokyo or whack another monster. If you like Kaiju and rolling lots of dice this is the game for you.

3 reviews for King of Tokyo

  1. 3 out of 5

    Fun dice rolling game. It’s pretty easy to learn. The only problem with this game is that there is player elimination, which results in a few people having to wait for the game to end. With unfortunate luck and gambling, a player could be eliminated very quickly.

  2. 5 out of 5

    King of Tokyo is one of those games where you can teach anyone, and they can quite possibly win on their first try. For some people that’s a good thing, and others want a game that always rewards the smarter (or more experienced) player.
    But being so approachable is the best part of King of Tokyo. I would highly recommend it.

  3. 5 out of 5

    This game was designed by a game design legend, the genius who invented Magic: The Gathering. So when it came out there was a literal frenzy. While I really like this game, but in all honesty almost gave it 4 stars because simply because I didn’t completely feel it lived up to the hype.

    That said, I need to judge a game on it’s own merit, and for a game whose action is primarily dice rolling, this game is a lot of fun. The theme is fantastic, as who doesn’t like the idea of being a huge monster trying to take over Tokyo.

    I think the reason I just had to give this game 5 stars is not only because it is fun, but it is a game that anybody can play. Concidering the level of sophistication this game brings to the table, that is saying a lot.
