In this highly anticipated re-release you can brawl as your favourite monster and destroy the city of Tokyo all from the comfort of your living room!  In King of Tokyo: Dark Edition you will find all of the familiar characters and gameplay from the popular classic: King of Tokyo with a decidedly grittier feel.  There are some advancements in mechanics and additional features to this limited release along with some new, eye-catching artwork to populate the cards.  The dice & energy pieces have gotten an upgrade but if you are familiar with the original core game you should be able to pick this one up in no time!

Collect energy, buy power-ups and head into Tokyo to brawl with the other players at the table.  A roll of the dice decides how long you can stay in the city and reign as King of Tokyo.   The longer you stay in the city, the more points you get & the more your opponents roll for attack the quicker you need to leave the city to recharge your health.

King of Tokyo: Dark Edition is a limited release with enough bits of the original to feel nostalgic and enough revised material to experience something new while you are playing.  This collectors edition is worth picking up if you are a fan of the series as they won’t be printing any more of them.  If you haven’t started into the King of Tokyo series yet this is an excellent place to start!  Check it out here in our online store.
