One of the first games I played. King of tokyo is a great game for all ages. The aim of the game is to be the kimg of tokyo. You do this by either killing all your opponents or getting to 20 victory points. The components are of very high quality. I have played this with the mother in law and she reallly enjoyed it. I'd definitely recommend anyone to have this game in their collection.

Awesome game, one for everyone here! A great dice driven game, so if you like rolling dice this is for you! There is strategy however as you have to decide which dice to keep and which to reroll depending on is you are trying to cause damage or chase victory points, or to collect special power cards, or managing the health of your character. The artwork is amazing and the theme is not too cute but also not too dark/sinister, it is a really fun game for families and gaming groups alike. The aim is to either be the last monster alive, or to collect 20 victory points first. You get victory points by rolling victory points on the dice (you have to have at least 3 of a kind) or by getting control of and staying in Tokyo. Being in Tokyo is a dangerous place though, make sure you have enough health as the other players will try to inflict as much damage as possible! You can collect cards which give special powers, my favourite is the 'extra head' card which allows you to roll an additional dice! Maximum attack! So much fun, and so playable. Easy to teach and enjoy - another essential game, and there are expansions as well...

An extremely fun little game. The artwork and components are of good quality befitting the style of the game. Essentially a dice game with players trying to get to 20 points first whilst trying to damage the other players, there are various cards which can be purchased which provide one off or permanent effects to you or other players. Players roll the dice upto 3 times keeping or discarding dice, the dice symbols mean you either collect energy (used to buy cards), cause damage, heal or score points.

To score points if you have 3 of a number (1, 2 or 3) you score that many points, if you score more than 3 of a number then you gain an extra point for each one. To heal for every Heart token you heal 1 point of damage, unless you are in Tokyo. For every lightning bolt you gain an energy cube which can be spent on cards during your turn and finally Fists represent damaging other players, those outside Tokyo hurt the player inside whilst those inside Tokyo damage all other players. Players in Tokyo can not heal but do gain points for going into or staying in Tokyo, if they are damaged by a player they can elect to leave forcing the other player into Tokyo.

This games plays really quickly and is immense fun providing a good open or close to a games evening.
