King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange
aliens—all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order
to become the one and only King of Tokyo.
At the start of each turn, you roll six dice, which show the
following six symbols: 1, 2, or 3 Victory Points, Energy, Heal, and
Attack. 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.
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!
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.... and it's one of the most explosive games of the year!
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.
