My game group uses it as a warm up or a night cap. Or if we have a non gamer over! A must own for the collection.
Once players are familiar, games can take as little as ten glorious minutes of Smashing!
It's a dice game. I've heard it called Yahtzee with monsters. And yeah, I can see that, but it has a lot more. There is a lot more interaction than Yahtzee with the battle theme. There are heavily unbalanced cards to collect and play, but that just adds to the outlandish gameplay. There's definitely more luck than strategy, but there's a real opportunity to make choices with what luck you're given. In a game of 4 people, you can all four go different ways in trying to win and it's hard to say which strategy will take it all. It's a great group game and is my church youth group's favorite game and I got this second edition to have a copy at our church.
As far as the new version goes. I like the old artwork better. All the artwork looks more plasticy. The new board works the same with updated artwork of the same scene. And the Kraken is gone!!! Who in the world decided that a 3-2-1 Penguin poser was better than the mighty Kraken? "Release the penguin" in a small squeeky voice is just not the same as a thunderous "RELEASE THE KRAKEN". The cyber bunny has been replaced with cyber kitty--who cares. The card back and front artwork is updated (I think the card info is pretty much the same). The dice and energy cubes are the same.
The possible problem is the lack of compatibility with expansions. Some of the expansions expect certain characters, and they've said there will be a version 2 Powerup expansion. So don't buy Powerup to go with this yet. The Halloween expansion that few like will not be updated, and the Halloween card backs are not compatible unless you put the cards in sleeves. I own the Halloween expansion but have never taken it out of the box so I can't speak for how much of a loss that is...
The rules have been clarified slightly and I understand that the cards are also slightly clarified. But if you have version 1, you can get the rules from iellogames website and use them with version 1!
So really if you have version 1, there's no reason to move up unless you have a strange penguin fetish. But if you don't have King of Tokyo--get this game! It's a lot of fun to play with 4-6 people.
Would recommend this for sure!
Between this and King of NY, I like this game better. KoNY adds significant complexity in the form of the army tokens. I like this game better because it's easier to learn and it doesn't bog down while players decide what to do like KoNY.. It's just "roll them dice as fast as you can and hope for the best".
There's strategy, so it's not all dice rolling, but I would say that luck plays a bigger factor than actual skill in this game. But it's not as lopsided in the luck department like in Yahtzee by any means.
There are also some cards that you can buy to either help improve your monster, or to help harm other monsters.
All in all, it's a fun family game that doesn't take up a lot of time, and even younger kids can enjoy. There is the unlikely scenario where a person gets knocked out very early in the game, and if it's a child, she/he might be angry or upset that she/he has to sit on the sidelines whilst she/he waits for the game to end.
