I loved this expansion for King of Tokyo. There are 2 new Halloween-themed monsters (Pumpkin Jack is my favourite!), evolution cards for the monsters if playing with the Power Up! expansion, 6 orange dice and some new cards. The costume cards are fun to throw in every once in a while, but far from essential. Costumes give the monster wearing them a bonus, but they can be "ripped" away if an attacker rolls three claw dice. I've found that the costume cards tend to make players more eager to fight each other.
This expansion requires the King of Tokyo core game to play - it adds more characters and features to the game. Aside from two thematic Halloween characters and costume items. it probably won't add much to your game experience. Overall, a nice expansion if you already have the game. But you wont miss much by not getting it. It is compatible with the Power Up! expansion.

2nd expansion of King of Tokyo, containing 2 new monsters (Pumpkin Jack and Boogie Woogie) thier evolution cards, a selection of new "costume" cards for King of Tokyo, "Halloween" Dice (great as extra dice) and a promo card (mine was for King of New York).
This is considered as a collectors pack but for me is the 2nd expansion for King of Tokyo.
For me I like the new monsters and it gives you more choice, the new cards are different and the new dice are great as an alternative or just for adding as advancements from card powers.

The box already tells you what is contained, but something it doesn't really express is how great it is to have another set of dice. When playing with 5 or 6 players it is so much better to have that extra set.

We generally play with all evolution cards shuffled into one pile to prevent any particular monster from gaining an advantage (the same with the power cards too) so I can't comment on how these new monsters fair by themselves, but having the Costumes is a great extra for us, and the new evolution (Gifts / Curses?) cards are a new fun aspect too.

We have currently been playing with a house rule of the Costumes being in a separate pile and players gaining the opportunity to buy a random one if they roll 3 or more Energy on their turn. This was a great way to see and experience these new cards, next game I will be voting to shuffle these Costumes in with the general pile of power cards.

As with KoT in general, lots to consider but nothing is too complicated.

This is the second King of Tokyo expansion and to use all the components in the box, you'll need the first. You could play this with just the base game if you left the evolution cards in this set out, but bear in mind this is a pretty small expansion even with those cards.

What this game brings to the table firstly is two new characters, Pumpkin Jack and Boogie Woogie. These characters are a bit more interesting for me than the fairly lame panda that came with the first expansion. You'll also get the new guys' score cards, stands and evolution cards. Like the last expansion, this is not meant to add extra players to the game, it is still a 2-6 player game even with both expansions, you'll just have more monsters to choose from.

Secondly there are 12 new cards that will be shuffled into the card deck from the main set. These are costume cards which give your monster a certain ability and work just like Keep cards, the twist being that if someone hits you for 3 or more damge they can steal your costume (as long as they pay you it's cost in cubes). This is a good new mechanic as you can target someone with a cool costume ability and steal it from them, but doesn't have a big impact on the game as those 12 cards won't come up too often.

Lastly there's a set of KoT dice just like those in the base game but with orange symbols. Although these are not necessary, it makes this expansion feel a bit better value for money than the first.

Recommended for people who play KoT a lot as it adds some more variety to your games.

The monsters inside have great cards added to them. You can remove dice from other opponents or even remove whole re-rolls. A lot of fun added to the main game.

bought this with powerup, the coloured dice dont add much but the new monsters and costume cards are fantastic to add a little more complexity and make each of the monsters feel different.

better to upgrade the game with this than to go for king of new york
