Totally worth it,


I hate cubes, well wood cubes. I dont mind the ones in KOT but these are so much cooler.

Cool, but a bit thin.


I often run the game at a public gamers meeting, where I explain the rules almost every other week. Having the energy in the same shape on the table and on the dice has so far reduced questions significantly as it is easier to make the connection. But for handling, they could be one or two millimeters thicker.

Better shape than the standard cubes, but a bit light


I really want to like these more than I do...the shape is great and it adds to the theme, but unfortunately, they should have been "chunkier", with a little more heft. I have the Broken Token King of Tokyo box organizer and these Lightning Tokens get lost and seem so insignificant in the removable tray.

Better energy for KoT


These lightning tokens are great, and are easier to associate with the symbols on the dice. Like other reviewers, I wish they were a bit thicker, but that doesn't stop them from being great!

Full of Theme, a Little Short in Quality


I really liked these as an addition to theme. I've been asked many times why they were physical cubes, but lightning bolts in the cards. Now I don't need to answer that question anymore. :)

However, I would have liked them more if they were sanded and made to be finer/smoother.

A Great Supplement


These a great replacements to the energy cubes. They are made with high quality materials and are very durable. And they fit just great into the game and its storage tray.

King of new york tokens


Theys Creator should have thot of that, theys lost.

Nice move Broken token.

Awesome Flair for an awesome game.


Pretty simple really. Cool little lightning tokens to replace the generic energy cubes shipped with the game. Quality made and looks great.

OK Product


First off the quality of the pieces that I got are very good. They are cut from a thick acrylic as the description denotes and really make a great change from the goofy cubes that the game comes with. Excellent addition if you want to add to the theme. For seven bucks though? I sont' know, how badly do you want to add to the theme? I will be buying another bag because I personally think it's worth it.

Infinitely better than the cubes


These are much more fun and easier to find than the cubes, not to mention they make much more sense in the game.

Good product


The only thing that is not perfect is the cuting line... not a smooth finish. Otherwise, it's all good,

Do you really need these?


No, of course you don't, but they look great with the game. If you are a little on the OCD side of your board gaming (and let's face it, you are because you are on this website) you will like them!

Better than Cubes!


What's to say? Replace your boring old cubes with spiffy little lightning bolts! It's nice to have the pieces actually match the icon. Of course, now my players can no longer refer to the pieces as "Energon Cubes", but I digress.

The only flaw is that some of the pieces are a little cloudy and there's a rough edge here and there.

Great pieces! Way better than cubes!


These are so much nicer than the cubes that come with the game. Some of the pieces turned out a little nicer than others but overall it's a very nice product.

Nice upgrade


I'm the guy that likes to upgrade the pieces from the base cardboard or generic shapes. These base pieces get the job done, but I want a little extra flair. These lightning shaped pieces match the shape on the cards which allows new players to grasp their purpose much easier. I would like them to be a little heavier, but they do a good job.

Awesome upgrade for King of T/NY! Great price.


Totally solid upgrade for the King of games. Highly Recommended.



These are the energy tokens that SHOULD have come with King of Tokyo (and King of New York, from what I understand). Energy is depicted on the cards as being little green lightning bolts, but the game comes with cubes.


Buy these.

Just do it. They don't change the way you play the game, they just make the game feel BETTER, somehow.

They should have come with the game, but since the manufacturer screwed up by not hiring Broken Token to design their tokens, you have to do it, yourself. Hire broken token to improve your King of Tokyo game -- you won't regret it.

These are the only replacements out there!


And they're perfect. They match the cards more precisely and they replace the orginal cubes.

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.

Super fun!


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.

awesome replacement for the original


awesome upgrade to the dinky cubes which dont match the symbol on the card.

The perfect upgrade/replacement for the energy cubes


After buying the King of Tokyo board game with expansions and the broken token wooden box insert for said game at, I was looking for a suitable upgrade from the small green cubes provided by the board game company, after some searching I came to, 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.

Perfect addition


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



Good replacement for the standard cubes. More fun. Good quality.

cute & perfect


I played with these yesterday & the whole group fought over who got the lighting tokens.
