There's always something happening in the city that never sleeps. Maybe
it's the lights, maybe it's the energy, or maybe it's the giant monsters
trying to demolish the place!
King of New York is a standalone game from designer Richard Garfield
that keeps the core ideas of King of Tokyo while introducing new ways to
play. As in King of Tokyo, your goal is to be the first monster to
collect 20 victory points (VPs) or to be the last monster standing. On
your turn, you roll six dice up to three times, then carry out the
actions on those dice. Claws cause damage to other monsters, hearts heal
damage to yourself, and energy is stored up so that you can purchase
power cards that provide unique effects not available to anyone else.
What's new in King of New York is that you can now try to become a star
in the big city; more specifically, you can achieve "Fame", which nets
you VPs, but superstar status is fleeting, so enjoy your time in the
The game board for King of New York is larger than in King of Tokyo with
each monster occupying a district in the city and everyone trying to
shine in Manhattan. When you attack, you can displace a monster in
another district, whether to escape military forces or to find new
smashing opportunities. Yes, smashing because you can now destroy
buildings and get bonuses for doing so, but the more destruction you
cause, the more intense the military response.
The monsters from King of New York can be used in King of Tokyo and vice
versa, but the power cards are specific to this game.
