In today’s world of online games, digital board games are quite popular among all age groups. These can be accessed from anywhere in the world, and can be played 24 hours. King of Tokyo is an example of a fun and engrossing digital board game. This game involves winning over the city of Tokyo not via strategic measures, but by becoming and battling monsters!
What is King of Tokyo?
This digital board game is based upon the Kaiju genre. Kaijus are monsters and beasts from Japanese legends. King of Tokyo involves the players becoming one and battling others to win over the city. A player gets to play the “king of the hill” using dice and special abilities. The winner is the one who has either destroyed the entire city of Tokyo, or the one who survives after all the monsters are killed. It is a fun game to play as there are very few games in this genre.
