Chat Noir Books 12 Days of Christmas

Chat Noir Books's 12 Days of Christmas Sale! 12 one-day-only sales from December 11th -24th. Each day, check our Facebook page the day before or our blog for details of each sale and save!!

On the first day of Chat Noir Book's Christmas Sale, my true love picked up for me: "When Everything Feels like the Movies" for only $13.40. For one day only, Friday, December 11th,"When Everything Feels like the Movies" $13.40 each (regular price $15.95). Limit one per customer, while supplies last, no rainchecks.

On the 2nd day of Chat Noir Book's sale my true love gave to me King of Tokyo and King of New York!
On Wednesday, December 2 only, King of Tokyo for $33.22(regular $42.00) and King of New York for $38.75 (regular $48.99.95). While supplies last, one of each per customer, no rainchecks.

In King of Tokyo, you play mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens—all of whom are destroying Tokyo and whacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.

At the start of each turn, you roll six dice, which show the following six symbols: 1, 2, or 3 Victory Points, Energy, Heal, and Attack. Over three successive throws, choose whether to keep or discard each die in order to win victory points, gain energy, restore health, or attack other players into understanding that Tokyo is YOUR territory.

The fiercest player will occupy Tokyo, and earn extra victory points, but that player can't heal and must face all the other monsters alone!

Top this off with special cards purchased with energy that have a permanent or temporary effect, such as the growing of a second head which grants you an additional die, body armor, nova death ray, and more.... and it's one of the most explosive games of the year!

In order to win the game, one must either destroy Tokyo by accumulating 20 victory points, or be the only surviving monster once the fighting has ended.

There's always something happening in the city that never sleeps. Maybe it's the lights, maybe it's the energy, or maybe it's the giant monsters trying to demolish the place!
King of New York is a standalone game from designer Richard Garfield that keeps the core ideas of King of Tokyo while introducing new ways to play. As in KoT, your goal is to be the first monster to collect 20 victory points (VPs) or to be the last monster standing. On your turn, you roll six dice up to three times, then carry out the actions on those dice. Claws cause damage to other monsters, hearts heal damage to yourself, and energy is stored up so that you can purchase power cards that provide unique effects not available to anyone else.
What's new in King of New York is that you can now try to become a star in the big city; more specifically, you can achieve "Fame", which nets you VPs, but superstar status is fleeting, so enjoy your time in the spotlight.
The game board for King of New York is larger than in KoT with each monster occupying a district in the city and everyone trying to shine in Manhattan. When you attack, you can displace a monster in another district, whether to escape military forces or to find new smashing opportunities. Yes, smashing because you can now destroy buildings and get bonuses for doing so, but the more destruction you cause, the more intense the military response.
The monsters from King of New York can be used in KoT and vice versa, but the power cards are specific to this game.
