Iello Games has a new expansion arriving for the hit Richard Garfield game King of Tokyo and there’s a holiday theme involved. King of Tokyo: Halloween is being called a “collector pack” and includes two new monsters, as well as their Evolution cards and orange/black dice, to bring more mayhem to your gaming table. Although the official sell sheet indicated a March 2014 release, new indications are we’ll actually see this limited edition add on pack in time for Halloween 2013! No word yet on an MSRP though…
King of Tokyo: Halloween, which is subtitled “Collector Pack 1”, includes two new monsters for use with the King of Tokyo base game: Pumpkin Jack and Boogey Woogey. What’s more, each monster comes with its own set of eight Evolution cards – first introduced in King of Tokyo: Power Up! – so that each monster can mutate into an even more nightmarish version of itself!
King of Tokyo: Halloween also includes six orange-and-black engraved dice (to fit the Halloween theme, of course) and twelve new Power cards to be shuffled into the deck. These cards are all Costumes, a new type of card that provides a powerful effect, but which can be stolen by any monster that rolls three claws and rips the costume off of you.
Finally, King of Tokyo: Halloween includes an exclusive promotional card for the next King of Tokyo standalone game, which will be released in 2014.
A quick followup note: The new standalone game indicated in the release will be called King of New York.
