King of Tokyo
This game is a dice and card based game. Each character is a monster and they fight each other in the city of Tokyo. The goal is to be the first person to 20 victory points, or to be the last one standing. When you roll you can either attack, earn victory points, heal your lives, or gain energy cubes. The energy cubs are currency for buying cards. Each card does something different and can give your player special abilities to have an advantage in some way. It is a game of risk and weighing the outcomes, so that you can take over the city of Tokyo and start racking up victory points, or retreat out of the city to heal yourself. This can be a very quick game if played well, or can last for a while depending on the strategies used by players. It is easy to pick up and a fun family friendly game for anyone over maybe 8 years old or so. Don't be scared, play King of Tokyo and experience true joy!
