NEW RELEASE: Tokaido 5th anniversary edition


5th anniversary edition

Author: Antoine Bauza
Illustrator: Naïade
Category: Board Games
Nbr of players: 2 – 5
Gametime: 30 to 45minutes
Age: 8+

>> Follow the link to book your Tokaido 5th anniversary edition at a special price! (Essen Pick-up Only!). The game is available in French and English.

 

About the game
In Tokaido, players are travelers crossing the East Sea Road in a quest of discoveries and natural marvels. Each traveler will get several opportunities to stop by stations all along the road in which he will be able to purchase souvenirs, meet new people, make donations to the shrines, taste local cuisine specialties, bath in hot springs or even paint sumptuous vistas.

Players will move in a simple order starting from the farthest to the closest one from the arrival, which will lead them to chose their moves wisely not to go too fast but also not to go too slowly.
The player order will change all the time, and as the places are more than limited in each station, travelers will have to face a permanent dilemma.

All the collections and points of the players will be permanently known and visible by everyone.
You will have to decipher everyone’s strategies and anticipate each moves, choosing either to act for your own interests or to thwart other’s ones.

HOP! is a game for 3 to 6 players in which you have to climb in the sky faster than your opponents!

Numerous challenges can be met only by helping or being helped by the other players.

Description
POCKET MADNESS is a game for 2 to 4 players in which you must maintain your sanity longer than your opponents!

As followers of ancient myths, guided by dark and promising rumors, you survey the most disturbing locations, each more unsettling than the last, in search of clues. Gathering enough of them will allow you to open portals to see these obscure worlds… unless you would prefer to publish your research, plunging your opponents into madness.

You must be careful, though, because you are meddling with powers that are beyond you, and it could be you who is first to fall, once and for all, into madness!

Maintain your sanity longer than your opponents, because the least crazy cultist wins the game!

TOKAIDO – COLLECTOR’S EDITION coming next Wednesday on KICKSTARTER!

TOKAIDO - COLLECTOR'S EDITION coming next Wednesday on KICKSTARTER!

You know it, we have a lot of projects around TOKAIDO.
We already announced a digital app on Kickstarter. After having worked hard a lot, we finally decided to postpone the digital app project as a crowdfunded one for a simple reason: there is, today, no simple (and even less elegant) way to distribute such app through Kickstarter. This is meanly related to Apple and Google distribution policies which are not compatible with a pre-paid app. Without entering into each and every details, we preferred to rework the project to be “classically” released through the app stores and we will keep you informed about the evolution of the project.

The good news is that today we are proud to announce another project around TOKAIDO.
On next Wednesday (February 26th) we will go live on Kickstarter with a COLLECTOR’S EDITION.
This edition will be heavy loaded with materials such as:

  • A whole game including the Crossroads edition
  • 16 (and maybe more) detailed figures “the supercute minis”
  • New scoring tokens
  • A totally reworked and even more elegant graphic design, and maybe new character arts
  • 50 Metal coins
  • A soundtrack CD, exclusively composed for your game sessions
  • And maybe a lot more surprises in the stretch goals!

We are super excited about this collector’s edition and we hope that you will be as excited as we are to put your hands in it!

We will need your help to bring this project to life so stay closely tuned, everything will start on Wednesday February 26th!
