King of Monster Island, new from Richard Garfield

Originally teased by publisher Iello at Essen Spiel 2021, King of Monster Island by designer Richard Garfield and artist Paul Mafayon is a cooperative, monster-battling game. Like its predecessors King of Tokyo and King of New York, players take on the roll of a monster looking to smash, but this time you’re not smashing each other... You’re working together to smash an even greater menace living in the volcano on Monster Island. Read more about this new 'King of' game over at
