107 Monsters Take to the Streets of Tokyo

107 of the most fearsome monsters you’ll ever see descended on Tokyo, via the Space-Time Portal in Seven Springs PA, to battle each other to become the one true King of Tokyo.

After 20 preliminary matches and four semifinals, Richard Curtin, Nick Bentley, Daniel Ottey and Dalton Versak gathered on the outskirts of Tokyo.

Richard got off to a fast start by rolling himself 8 VP’s in his first two turns. During these first couple of turns, each player took a turn inside Tokyo, but everyone quickly ran away as soon as another monster so much as breathed on them. That finally changed as Daniel bravely held his ground in Tokyo to build himself a couple of bonus points. He also exploited the damage power that the monster in Tokyo has when he swung for 4 hits against each of the other monsters in one turn.

A couple of pivotal events happened shortly after. Richard rolled himself up to 12 VP’s while Nick bought the very powerful Nova Breath card, your damage effects all monsters in or out of Tokyo. Dan continued to hold his ground inside of Tokyo getting ready to make his big move. Richard continued his hot VP rolling and scored 5 more VP’s in his next turn to get to 17 and potentially one turn away from victory. However, all those VP dice meant Richard had no healing dice. Dan took advantage of that in his next turn from inside of Tokyo. He did 4 damage to each of the other monsters. That damage killed both Richard and Dalton in one shot. Leaving Dan and Nick to face off for ultimate glory.

Nick managed to get Dan down to 4 health, but staying in Tokyo continued to pay dividends for Dan. Dan reach 19 points while still at 4 health. Dan was inside Tokyo, so if Nick didn’t eliminate him on his turn, Dan would score 2 points to give him the victory. Nick picked up the dice and with his first roll dropped 3 damage down. He picked up the 3 other dice and took his first re-roll but found no more damage. It all came down to one last roll of 3 dice. One damage and Nick will be the only monster that survives. None, and Dan stands atop the tallest tower in Tokyo enjoying ultimate glory….

…and one more damage is just what Nick rolled. It was a fantastic finish and a great tournament overall. Congratulations to Nick and the other finalists. I also want to thank everyone who came out for the raucous fun. Expect more of the same in 2018 so start preparing early.

There's something about monsters that brings the little rug rats to the surface. That's why 30 of the little critters flocked to the Juniors Room to invade Tokyo. When the last skyscraper had fallen, Aaron Birnbaum had emerged from the rubble as the best monster of the bunch.

The other top monsters were Armelle Worrell, Rita Polcen, Ian Moffit, Macsen Powers, and Bailey Burdett.
