While Tokaido retains the famous clean graphic design of the boardgame, it offers unprecedented immersive 3D, realtime graphics, all accompanied by a superb and unprecedented soundtrack, composed specifically for the game.

 

// Play anywhere, solo, with two, or with the whole world:

Available for smartphones and tablets, Tokaido offers several play modes:
– Solo against the AI,

ABOUT POCKET MADNESS

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!

Goal of the game
You must get rid of all your Location cards as quickly as possible, by melding sets of identical cards or sets of different cards, in order to avoid descending into madness.

Course of the game
The game plays out over several rounds, during which you must avoid descending into madness. At the end of a round, if any player has accumulated 10 Madness tokens, the game comes to an end, and the player with the fewest Madness tokens wins the game.
