The name of the game is the same, at the start of each turn, you roll six dice. Over three successive throws, choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to win victory points, gain energy, restore health, or attack other players into understanding that Tokyo is YOUR territory. Top this off with special cards purchased with energy that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional die, body armor, nova death ray, and more!
King of Tokyo 2016 Edition includes the ever-so-popular Space Penguin (originally only available through tournaments) and Cyber Kitty! The King, Gigazaur, Meka Dragon, and Alienoid are still defending their territory however and they’ve also benefitted from a makeover. The changes are purely aesthetic changes: the rules of the game and Power cards remain unchanged.
The fiercest player will occupy Tokyo, and earn extra victory points, but that player can't heal and must face all the other monsters alone! In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 victory points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.
King of Tokyo 2016 is recommended for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up. It takes an estimated 30 minutes per game.
