With the new panda character, can you play 7 players with the original 6 monsters?

Sadly, there is no inclusion of a 7 player version in the rules.

I don't really see any reason why you couldn't. It might make staying in Tokyo a bit harder, but rarely is anyone able to stay in for more than one go around the table with 6 players. We were going to try it at my last game night, but decided to play a 7 player game of The Adventurers: The Pyramid of Horus instead. (Recommended, by the way!)

Re: Can you play 7 players?
I think it will be so hard to stay one round in Tokyo that nobody will even try. No more fight, the game will be all about victory points and a few special abilities.

To counterbalance this behavior, you could try to give a defensive bonus in Tokyo (like immunity against the first pawn from each opponent) or increase the reward for beginning your turn in Tokyo (like 5 victory points or a free Power Up card).

Yup, you can play seven players, no problem, it's just really hard to stay a complete round in Tokyo.

With the new Halloween monsters arriving soon it would be cool to see an official 7 to 9 player ruleset. Maybe add a third section to Tokyo to balance things out? Some other change?
