King of Tokyo can be played with less than 6 people – up to a minimum of 2. However, we find that playing with 2 people is not as fun as usual. What happened between the two was just hitting each other. It's the fun part of the game. But when there are only two of them, the game is not long enough to unleash the power of the cards and the special features they have. So it turns the game from accumulating mana and buying cards into a quick game of seeing who can unleash the most attacks.
At the beginning of each turn, you will roll 6 dice, with 6 symbols: 1, 2, 3 victory points, mana, health, and attack. For the next 3 turns, choose to keep or discard each dice to boost victory, increase mana, heal or attack another player – asserting that Tokyo is your territory.
The most ferocious player will capture Tokyo, and gain more victory points, but not heal and face all the other monsters alone.
The best thing about this game is the special cards you can buy with your energy. Cards will grant either immediate or permanent abilities, such as the growth of a monster head – granting you 1 extra dice, armor, destructive rays, and more.
Smashing and fighting is your only mission, do it well to be crowned the King of Tokyo.
