As far as gameplay, it is very simple. Each turn, you will roll 6 black dice and get victory points, energy, attack symbols or healing symbols. The goal? To gain 20 Victory
Points before anyone else, or, be the last monster standing, with all the others having taken enough damage to destroy them.
Like Yahtzee, you roll the dice, then can keep any you like, and reroll any you don’t like. If you get 3 of any number, you score that many victory points. So a roll of three
2’s gets you 2 points. Each additional number of the same gets you an additional point as well. So four 2’s will net you 3 total points while five 2’s will get you 4 total
Each Energy (Lightning) symbol provides you one energy automatically, which will be used to buy one of the 3 cards in play. When a card is bought, a new one immediately replaces
it. While that sounds “Deckbuildish” (if that’s a word), it’s not really a deck building game. Some cards have a “keep” effect where they stay in front of you and you gain the rewards
while some have a “discard” effect, where you will purchase them, play them immediately, and reap or wreak any effects.
The first player to roll and keep an attack symbol can enter Tokyo. Why do you want to be in Tokyo? Simple. While in Tokyo, each damage you roll deals one damage to ALL the
monsters outside of Tokyo. Think of it like you are chomping on skyscrapers and spitting out metal at them, so to speak. However, while in Tokyo, all the monsters outside of Tokyo
that roll a damage, will damage you. Now you can, whenever you take damage and are in Tokyo, choose to get out and let the monster who damaged you take your place, and as such, this is the
primary decision you’ll be making through the ebb and flow of the game.
Overall, this is a very fun game, and one that can be played by almost any age. Keep in mind though that it is not highly strategic game, just one with slight strategies sprinkled in,
so if you are thinking this is Ascension with Dice, no my friends, it’s not. However, if you like light deckbuilding games, enjoy Yahtzee like mechanics, or just plain like gigatronic size
monsters crushing things, this game is an enjoyable find and even more fun to play.
