This is a set of 50 Lightning Tokens perfect for replacing those energy cubes in King of Tokyo and King of New York.
They are cut from high quality 1/8" green transparent cast acrylic.
NOTE: We ship our acrylic pieces with a protective coating that you can just peel off. This coating keeps the material from scratching and burning during manufacturing and we often leave it on so the acrylic is pristine when you receive it. Having trouble removing all the paper backing from the acrylic sheets? We recommend Simple Green to get any residual adhesive off. Sometimes we remove the coating ourselves to inspect the pieces for quality.

Themed Well but Difficult To Use
Posted by Raymond Hill on 19th Sep 2016
These tokens have a perfect shape to match the lightning bolt on the cards and make explaining them much easier than the "cubes"; however, they are so difficult to pick up off the table that I'm considering going back to the cubes. If they had been a bit deeper and had the edges smoothed a bit they might have gotten a higher score from our group. We will keep using them for now and see if they grow on us. Also, our package arrived with only 40 tokens instead of the 50 listed in the product description.
Beautiful, but mismatched.

These tokens are beautiful and fantastic additions to King if Tokyo, adding more theme to the game, but a small number of them were darker than the others. Could be used to represent values of 5, but they do stick out and aren't consistent.

Well-made, attractive, solid pieces. Frequently having to pick them up off of a flat, hard surface proved frustrating, though. Ideally I would use these everytime King of Tokyo hits the table because of the coolness factor, but, in practice, the base cubes will probably see more play due to their practicality.

I ordered these on a whim while ordering an insert for a different game. They're so fun! I hope the people I play boardgames with die of jealousy.

I played with these yesterday & the whole group fought over who got the lighting tokens.
The perfect upgrade/replacement for the energy cubes
Posted by Otacon Magoo, the game ninja. on 7th Aug 2015
After buying the King of Tokyo board game with expansions and the broken token wooden box insert for said game at Amazon.com, I was looking for a suitable upgrade from the small green cubes provided by the board game company, after some searching I came to Thebrokentoken.com, and saw these. They are great they look like the energy symbol on the cards, and I bought four bags of them.
Once I got them, I proceeded to put them into the wooden tray and 125 lightning tokens fit perfectly in the tray. They give the game a more pleasing look by design and the other 75 Lightning Tokens are in a small jewelry bag with the original 50 included cubes in the King of Tokyo board game box. In case some tokens go missing.
In closing, these are a must buy if you don't want to use the tiny green cubes or if you are looking for an upgrade to replace them completely.

Amazing pieces that really should have came with the game to begin with. They look even better in person than on the pictures here!
