The Tabletop Spotlight is on Tokaido – Deluxe Edition!
Tokaido is a game that is all about the journey. When Our friends over at Dragon’s Lair & Comics and fantasy brought over the Deluxe Edition I had a big smile on my face. I had heard about Tokaido from some other friends and I’ve seen it played. It’s a great game for all ages and it has some really fun mechanics as well. However, I had no idea what the Tokaido: Deluxe Edition had in store:
The whole point of Tokaido is the travel the road and to have the best possible experience. Each stop holds different points of interest/distractions that your character will want to look at – but be warned this is an open game. Every player can see your position, your points and witty players can plan accordingly. You also activate starting farthest to closest to arrival. Turns play out fairly quickly and it’s simple and fun.
I think all the additions in the Deluxe edition are certainly worth the extra price vs the standard edition. The miniatures in the box are a lovely touch to accompany the art work and style of this game. Plus it’s got an entire expansion in the box, too. So go check it out – Tokaido is in stores now for 2-5 players. If you’d like to take look at the rules those are also FREE online as well.
