Who will be the king of Tokyo?

The throne is for anyone to conquer by becoming monsters and fight with each other for supremacy. As the first step is to become a massive beast which can destroy the entire city in one swipe, the second step is to roll a dice. The players roll dice, score victory points, fill up their energies for new abilities and attack other monsters. The game gets interesting after someone becomes the king as then the player is playing against all the other players in the game. But as a king, the player gets dice rolling, card drafting, press-your-luck mechanics to eliminate other players and secure area of influence. To win the game, one must either secure 20 victory points by destroying Tokyo or be the only surviving player of the game.
