King of Tokyo

27 out of 36 gamers thought this was helpful

King of Tokyo is easy to learn and doesn’t take very long to get the hang of it. With all the various power up cards use during game play, every time you play it the best strategy to win changes.

While this game (because it uses dice) has a bit of luck involved, there are small areas in which the game involves skill.

Sometimes the best strategy is to simply avoid dying and try to outlast the rest of the players, other times its winning because you earned enough points. Also, these strategies can flip/flop throughout the short game. Players who are able to adapt to the charne strategy during the game tend to win more often than others.

King of Tokyo might not be the best game for the hard core strategy gamer, but there is still a little something there for them. The only thing I wish was better where the Monster Playing Pieces. They are just cardboard in a plastic stand. An actual figure, not unlike those in D&D, would add to the fun.

Played this game the other night with a group of friends. Game is not too complex and easy to learn. I enjoy the bluffing factor, not knowing who is an outlaw, etc at the beginning.

It took about 3-4 mins to learn, and only 30-45 mins to complete the first game. We’d played it 5 times total.

Due to the elements needed for the game, it easy to take to someone’s house for a party or restaurant.

Because luck plays a big part of it, even people new to gaming have a good chance of winning.

I enjoyed playing it so much, that I ordered the game online the very next game. Over all, this game just plain fun!
