We love this game. As someone wrote, “Yahtzee mixed with Godzilla!” It can be unpredictable, allowing anyone of various strategic skill ranges to win. Some of the power cards are vaguely written, or difficult to interpret. Just make sure everyone agrees to the effects of the cards. I recommend purch...  see moreof Joey's review

          Really fun game - great for introducing kids to a bit more strategic play. My son (7), niece (9), and 4 adults had a terrific time with this one. My son is super competitive and loves accumulating the powers and piling them up to make big moves.  see moreof AuntieDee's review

            This game is super easy to play. It has the rolling mechanics of Yahtzee (roll dice, keep some and roll the rest, repeat one more time) except you are monsters attacking each other and gaining experience. It's very simple and lots of fun!  see moreof MrTeacher's review

                My family of 5 adults loves to play board and tabletop games. I thought it would be fun to try to new game that was pretty easy to learn, wouldn't call for a huge amount of strategy or deep thinking, and wouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes to play. I bought King of Tokyo because of its great revie...  see moreof LinInDel's review
