King Of Tokyo Dark Edition

Richard Garfield’s King of Tokyo has been a gateway game for so many people that the box now comes with a hinged lid (it doesn’t). Although, it is also one of those games that has remained a whole lotta fun for a whole lotta time.

This is for those who have been cowering in their basements fearing the return of Gojira. King of Tokyo is a 2-6 player game where each player takes on the role of a city-smashing kaiju. Players battle to be the last monster standing or monster with the most points by rolling five oversize dice to gain points. Players can also inflict damage or obtain energy cubes to purchase upgrades and add-ons. All of this takes place, of course, in the city of Tokyo!

Coming Soon

To celebrate nearly ten years of  monster fun, Iello are to release a special collector’s edition of the game that promises to appeal to the old goths and emos among us: King of Tokyo: Dark Edition.

The game promises to have a ‘more wicked backdrop’, with the artwork taking on a more muted monochrome look punctuated by flashes of toxic yellow. It also states that there will be a more wicked game mechanic. The game components have also been given an upgrade in addition to this. This will probably fall into the category of ‘nice piece of kit’. It will have a limited print run of ‘once’, so grab it while you can as it looks like it will be as rare as tickets to My Chemical Romance’s comeback gig…

The special edition is due for release in early 2020 and has a price tag of $49.99. Just the thing to invest the Christmas money that’s burning a hole in your pocket. Leave one for me, though.

Website was straightforward to use and games were competitively priced. It would be useful to have pictures of the items in the outlet store so that you know what you're buying but hopefully the components will be fine and then we'll all be super happy :)

I have already made a few purchases from Zatu Games. Very efficient service and fast delivery. Will be making my next board game purchases from here in the future. If a minimum amount for free delivery is offered to customers, that would be even better. Anyhow, recommended!

Website is simple to navigate and use. Filters are easy and quick. Layout of pages clear and easy to follow. Shopping basket easy to modify and change items or quantities. Just placed an order so items not delivered yet. 4 stars, which I would change to 5 stars if delivered within time frame and all product and packaging is good.
