King of New York

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 introduces lots of new ways to play, while still keeping the core ideas of King of Tokyo. There are Buildings to Stomp! Vengeful Military Units to Destroy! Six brand new Monsters! 

Every roll of the dice might mean that your monster feels the OUCH, as military units open fire.

Will you grab the spotlight, and become a celebrity Superstar? Or will you become the defender of the city, and befriend Lady Liberty?

Each of New York's boroughs has its own charms, but to truly rule the Big Apple, you have to control Manhattan.

Defeat the other monsters and rule the city.... Become the King of New York!

  • I guess this is different from King of Tokyo, I suppose it tries to make star scoring a little more interesting. But I'm not sure I get how different bouroughs are different and all. It really seemed like more of the same. It's still very light, all in all, I only think it's okay.

  • A great improvement to King of Tokyo. Where King of Tokyo felt a little simplistic, King of New York adds in just enough other parts to become a more satisfying game of monster destruction.

This is really tough for me, because 3 of them were some of my absolute favorite games, and 1 was a new game that may very well move into my list of favorites. I think instead of ranking the actual games against each other (since I don't think I could actually do that), I'll rank them how much I enjoyed each play of the games this particular time around.

  1. #Oceans - this may very well be my favorite game. It depends on the day.
  2. #Santorini - hadn't played this in a while, so I was really excited to get it to the table. I also got to try out the expansion, which I hadn't done yet.
  3. #Concordia (with Venus) - 2nd time playing with my wife, and she beat me! I always enjoy when that happens. This is the new game I mentioned above that might move into my favorites list. I really like it. I'm afraid it might be too bland for my usual group, but who knows.
  4. #Everdell - one of my faves - so many combos to be had! My wife smoked me.
  5. #King of New York - tried for the first time at 2 players. It was a lot of fun, and I'm sure much more so at a higher player count (probably great at 5 or 6).

  • #Carcassonne @ 2p
  • #King of New York @ 2p - played this for the first time. It's pretty cool! A little more going on than #King of Tokyo, but still least enough to teach in a few minutes. I'm looking forward to playing with a higher player count.
  • #Santorini @ 2p. It had been a while since I played this - one of my favorites.
  • #Concordia @ 2p - my wife beat me by 10 points. I had more cards but she put out all of her houses and therefore ended the game.
  • #Everdell @ 2p - my wife crushed me. I had a decent game but she had a great one. I love this game. So much combo potential.
