|Players:||2 - 5|
In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places but at the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you'll have to be the most initiated traveler - which means that you'll have to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.
With new artwork from Naïade, new graphics design for the cards, new panorama pictures for travelers to combine, and a fresh new graphical look, the Tokaido 5th Anniversary Edition will be both a new product that stands on its own while also continuing the tradition of elegance and beauty that everyone expects from this beloved brand!
Learn how to play:
This game is zen in a box. Your goal throughout is simple, take a nice long journey along the Tokaido road: eat some food, meet some people, take in the sights. The person who has the most enjoyable journey wins. The game is easy to learn, easy to play, doesnt take all that long, and perfect for if you just wanna take it easy but still be playing something. If you want to add a bit more to it, grab the Crossroads expansion which makes each stop have two possible actions, otherwise the game is a good one as is.
This is one truly exceptional game that is easy for the whole family to play yet complex /deep enough to pose a different challenge every time and if you want even more variety get one of the expansions to add new dimensions to the game.
The artwork is divine and in the Anniversary edition expands that even further with the most exquisite figurines and coin replacements.
The game is great fun for the family and if winning isn't your thing... great, the journey and the story that unfolds is enough to enjoy this game thoroughly.
A definite 10 out of 10.
