Day 2 (of 3): King of Tokyo and my 13 year old son! :)

Greetings All,

Today is day two of my three-day segment about my children and their favorite board games.

-King of Tokyo by Iello Games-

2-6 players, 30-45mins

King of Tokyo

Above you can see the standard King of Tokyo and all of it’s components. My son is 13 years old.


Me: What is your favorite board game?

Son13: King of Tokyo!!


Me: If King of Tokyo was a story, what would it be?

Son13: Monsters were killing each other and were being destroyed, while one is in charge of a famous city.


Me: Can you give me a short summary of the rules?

Son13: Roll six dice, unless you buy a card called Extra Heads, which you can buy with energy points. There are six sides of the dice: 1, 2, 3, energy points (lightning bolts), damage (paw/claw print), and health (hearts). Match three numbers and get that many victory points, each additional same number equals one extra victory point. You Need twenty victory points to win.


Me: Who do you think this game is for?

Son13: Families, by that I mean it’s for kids and adults.


Me: Why is King of Tokyo your favorite game?

Son13: I love being a big monster that gets to kill other big monsters, plus I like it!


Me: Why should people buy/try King of Tokyo?

Son13: It’s fun and I like it!
