For fans of board gaming and Japanese culture, this is not to be missed. With unrivalled setting and aesthetics, TOKAIDO transports you to Edo-era Japan. Chub happens to own a collector's edition of the game, and is extremely generous in letting us play with it!
TOKAIDO is a game for 2 to 5 players, with unique atmosphere and aesthetics, in which the players are pilgrims on a journey along the legendary East Sea Road of Japan. It is extremely easy to get started, thanks to its fluid, simple, and tactical rules. Along the way, you will try to collect beautiful souvenirs, discover glorious vistas, enjoy enriching encounters, soak in soothing hot springs, sample sumptuous cuisine, and much more.
The video below should be useful for those who want to know how to play the base game. Else don't worry, everyone will be briefed on the game on the actual day ;)
Aside from this feature game, we'll also be playing other Japanese-themed games like MaiStar, Hanamokiji, Ninjato, Sushi Go, and many more!
IMPORTANT MEETUP DETAILS
- With the multitude of games to play, there'll only be a small fee of $5 per person to cover the costs of setting up this meetup! - payable on the actual day.
- Before the games, we'll meet at 6pm at Yorimichi Yakitori @ Golden Mile Tower #01-02 for dinner. Yorimichi Yakitori is a very cosy Izakaya-style restaurant that serves a variety of yakitori dishes (obviously ;p) and also some niche dishes that you may not see in other such restaurants! Also, take this chance to feel out your potential opponents in the games to come :pp
- After we're done with dinner, we'll proceed to the studio upstairs at #02-55 for the games!
If you have any questions regarding this meetup, please feel free to post a comment here or PM any of the organizers! :D
