The follow up game to King of Tokyo. This game is now set in Manhattan. It has changed it a little bit from Toyko. The board now has areas where there are buildings. Destroying a building can give you some bonuses. But once these are destroyed the tile is flipped and it is now a military base which can hurt the monsters. I have only played this a couple of times, personally I prefer Toyko to this but I will give this another try very soon.

King of New York is effectively version 2.0 of King of Tokyo. A game which keeps all the good stuff from Tokyo and provides some new elements and more good stuff to the game. So what has remained the same: Well you are still fighting over Tokyo however in this it’s called Manhattan. The monsters inside the area attack all others, while those outside the area attack only Manhattan. The energy and cards work exactly the same and the game comes with some cool new cards as you'd expect Hearts (heal) and claws (attack) are exactly the same and you still have 6 monsters fighting to be king! Although they're different to the monsters that come in the Tokyo version. So what is different……. Well the board now has areas for monsters to hang out in while they're not in Manhattan, so you are not just off the board while not in Manhattan anymore. The numbers on the dice (1, 2 and 3) are all gone they have been replaced with a star, a building destruction and ouch symbol. If you roll three stars you become the star of New York allowing you to score victory points by rolling more stars on future turns. There are now buildings on the board in each borough. These buildings can be destroyed by rolling destruction icons. Each building gives you a reward (health, energy and victory points) for destroying it. “Hulk Smash”!!!! Once buildings are destroyed you turn them over and they become a military unit in the area where the building was. Military units can hurt the monsters! If you roll 1, 2 or 3 ouch symbols you will cause the military to fight back either only on you (1), you and the other monster in your borough (2) or all monsters (3). This can be a great way to cause damage to other monsters no matter where they are. Military units can also be destroyed using the destruction icons - you get rewards for doing this too. If you roll 3 ouches you will also get a statue of liberty card which gives you 3 points so long as you have it. You no longer stay in the one location you can now move around the boroughs, and finally you now get increased rewards for staying in Manhattan - the longer you're in there the more points and energy you will get. Overall thoughts….. For me I think there are more opportunities in the game to cause chaos which I like. The buildings and military units add a lot. If you enjoy Tokyo you will really enjoy New York. You don’t need to have King of Tokyo in order to play this, I’d happily play both versions in fact I did last night!
