Game Night for Grownups: King of Tokyo/King of New York

When: Monday, June 12, 2017 - 5:00 PM - 7:45 PM
Where: Anderson Public Library at Cardinal Room

A monthly gaming group at the library for adults only! We meet on the second Monday each month. We will teach the featured game of the month but you are welcome to bring your own games, too! Beginners welcome!

The games this month are KING OF TOKYO and KING OF NEW YORK.

Play mutant monsters, gigantic robots and other monstrous creatures, rampaging the city and vying for position as the one and only King of Tokyo! Combine your dice to gather energy, heal your monster, or just slap the other monsters down! Spend your energy to trigger permanent or one-shot special powers: a second head, body armor, nova death ray... Stop at nothing to become the King of Tokyo...but that's when the real trouble begins for you!

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. (Description from iellogames.com)
