The Crossroads expansion adds to the riches of the Tokaido road and offers you the chance to renew the experience of this wonderful journey.
The gameplay remains identical as in the base game but now, during a stop at a station, a traveller can choose between two effects: the base game one and a new one.
Panorama stations now offer to choose between taking a Panorama card and taking a Cherry Tree card (which gives 2 points and 1 coin).
Hot springs stations allow to pick between drawing a Hot Springs card and paying 1 coin for a Bathhouse card (which gives 4 points).
Farm stations allow travellers either to take 3 coins in the bank either to try their luck in the gaming room by throwing a die (the player can lose, recover, double, triple or quadruple his bet).
Temple stations offer the opportunity to donate 1,2 or 3 coins or to pay 1 coin to the bank to take one of the Amulet cards (with a special effect depending on its type).
Shop stations allow either to buy Souvenirs either to acquire a Legendary object (giving bonuses depending on its type).
Encounter stations offer to draw an Encounter card or to pay 1 coin to the bank to acquire a Calligraphy card (giving bonuses depending on its type).
Players will also have the chance to discover and to embody 6 new Travellers that joined the journey!
