Storm the City and Wreak Destruction in Smash City —Coming Soon!
January 7, 2019

Hillside, NJ – January 9, 2019 – WizKids is pleased to announce that its new building-toppling, car-throwing, city-crushing dice game, Smash City, is coming soon to North American Game Stores!

In this dice-rolling game designed by Stephen Avery, and inspired by Japan’s iconic kaiju creatures, players become giant monsters powered by different types of energy, battling for dominance. The game features three-dimensional city buildings that players can knock over to gain different abilities. Each turn, they will roll giant dice in order to make the strongest possible attack against their opponents. If a building is knocked over, that player takes a Smash card, which give players special abilities. If a player knocks a building onto one of their opponents, that opponent takes damage based on the number of buildings that fell on them. If the player’s die is touching a building with an energy token matching that monster’s favored type of energy, they gain a Power Up token. They may also throw cars if their die lands within range of one, dealing 1 damage if they hit a monster or monsters and granting a Power Up token to that player.

However, as they destroy the city, the city will fight back. The civilians have sent armies to take you on, and if you happen to land in the vicinity of one of these armies, you will take damage. Additionally, you will take damage if your die is touching a building with an energy token that your monster does not favor.
The game ends when a monster reaches its last life point. The player who has the most Power Up tokens at the end of the game is the winner. With 4 unique monsters including the terrifying Toxiguana and the monstrous Magmalodon, Smash City will fire players up as they cause chaos and destruction in a battle to the death. Smash City is coming soon, so be sure to preorder it at your Friendly Local Game Store or online today!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
