New King of Tokyo Charity Promo Monster Released

July 24, 2015 - 8:01am
draccus card Iello / Worldbuilders are introducing a new monster for King of Tokyo, based on a monster from Patrick Rothfuss's Kingkiller Chronicles. The Draccus will be available from the Worldbuilders booth at Gencon (#663) and later from the author's website. Proceeds from sales of the promo will support the humanitarian efforts of Heifer International. According to the announcement, both parties to this partnership are excited to have an opportunity to collaborate:
The folks at IELLO are also big fans of New York Times bestselling author Patrick Rothfuss, and were tickled to find out that Pat loved playing King of Tokyo. They hung out a bit during Gen Con 2013, and a plan was hatched to bring the coal-chomping, resin-addicted Draccus out of his novel The Name of the Wind and into Tokyo Bay.  IELLO couldn’t wait to share their love for Rothfuss’s books with the boardgame community, and vice-versa. The new Draccus monster was designed by King of New York artist Régis Torres, and is fully playable in the original King of Tokyo game as well as King of New York.
