It has been a year now since the original King of Tokyo was released here.
And so much has been done since then!
That is why the Iello team has prepared an infographic of the most important key numbers about the game, since it came to BGA!
With King of Tokyo: Power Up! expansion for the King of Tokyo base game we meet the new monster Pandakai, a giant panda bear.
After choosing a monster, each player takes the eight Evolution cards associated with that monster, shuffles those cards, and creates a personal deck. At the end of a player's turn, if they have three hearts, they draw one Evolution card and add it to their hand- even if they are in Tokyo (where hearts are normally useless) and even if the hearts are used for some other action, such as healing.
A player can reveal and play an Evolution card at any time. Some Evolutions are temporary, allowing a one-time bonus, while others are Permanent, such as Gigazaur's "Tail Sweep", which allows him to change one die to a 1 or 2 every turn. Each Evolution card also identifies whether a monster is a Mutant, Invader, or Robot, and while not relevant for Power Up!, this species identification could come into play in future expansions.
The rules for King of Tokyo: Power Up! contain a few variants: Players start with a random Evolution in play, draw two cards and choose the one they want, or draft a set of Evolutions prior to the start of play. However you play, the goal of the game remains the same: Score 20 points or be the last monster standing amid the rubble of what was once Tokyo.

Of course, we would like to thank the fantastic Iello Team, who made this possible, as well as Richard Garfield for their autorization to bring the game to our platform.
Thoun is the name you're looking for: one of the most prolific developers on BGA has again ported this expansion to the site.
Play it from anywhere, tablets or phones, computers or e-readers: as long as there is an up-to-date web-browser on it, you should be able to play thanks to him.
That's it for today. No more expansions for the moment. For today. But you can count on us if something happens in the near future.
Where we're going we don't need roads!
Take care and play fair!
