King of Tokyo Dark Edition
Topple some buildings and roar at the top of your lungs! It's time to put on your monster costume and do battle amongst the skyscrapers to see who will be the one true King of Toyko!
King of Tokyo: Dark Edition is a collector's edition of King of Tokyo, with the fight taking place in an alternative and darker world in which the struggle for control of Tokyo has never been so fierce...and wicked!
Players take turns rolling a handful of them, trying to either match trios of numbers to earn victory points, gain energy and/or health, or cause damage to the other characters.
Energy is spent on powerups, and health can’t be gained by players inside Tokyo. Players using a die with an attack result will hit others based on their own location, if they’re outside Tokyo, they hit the one (or two in a 5-6 player game) monster inside the city. If they themselves are in town, they hit all the monsters outside of the city limits. The first monster to 20 victory points or last monster standing wins.
Numbered 1-10, players gain “Wickedness” by rolling their usual trios of numbers, but triple 3’s get you nothing but the usual victory points.
Triple 2’s earns you one point, and triple 1’s gets you two wicked points. At 3, 6, and 10 on the track, there are upgrades similar to what you can buy from the powers deck but in many cases they’re even better. They also are double sided, increasing the replay factor as you can use the red or green side, or mix and match.
Game time: 30 minutes
