King of Tokyo 2nd Edition


King of Tokyo is a light, dice rolling, card drafting game for 2-6 players set in a monster riddled Tokyo.

In King of Tokyo you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots and other monstrous creatures, rampaging the city and vying for position as the one and only King of Tokyo!

Combine your dice to gather energy, heal your monster or just slap the other monsters down! Spend your energy to trigger permanent or one-shot special powers: a second head, body armor, nova death ray…

Stop at nothing to become the King of Tokyo… but that’s when the real trouble begins for you!

On the 5th anniversary of the release of the best-seller by Richard Garfield, King of Tokyo gets a facelift with a new version, entirely redone by a group of artists lead by Régis Torres, who previously illustrated the Halloween expansion pack and King of New York.

In addition to these exclusive illustrations, this new version has a new rulebook that was reworked to be clearer, as well as two new monsters: the ever-so-popular Space Penguin and Cyber Kitty.

  1. Samuel

    Excellent game with enough strategy to be fun for all types of gamers but simple enough to be enjoyed by people who only have experience with monopoly etc. Great game to get people into the Hobbie, I highly recommend.

    King of Tokyo is such a great intro game you can play with people who are not typically gamers, a family, a bunch of 6 year old’s, or just as a filler with gamer friends. At 30 minutes it doesn’t overstay its welcome.

    A simpler, more streamlined King of New York; it plays quicker, this is much easier to play with kids but luck seems to have a higher effect.

    If you want accessibility, Tokyo, if you want more strategy, New York.
