Matching Music to Board Games – King of Tokyo

Playing a board game is enhanced by having suitable music or background noise, making it a more immersive experience. In this series of posts I will provide some recommendations for music to go with particular board games.


First up is the game King of Tokyo. This is a fun game to play, pretty short and easy to pick up with a fun concept and great board design. The music recommendation for this is very straightforward and obvious: the original soundtrack to Godzilla by Akira Ifukube (Spotify link). Definitely not any of the soundtracks to the more recent films.

I genuinely enjoy the soundtrack in itself and it works perfectly with the game. Moving your piece into the city while the monster noises come through on the soundtrack is great.
