Kickstarter: THE ART OF TOKAIDO is now LIVE

Paris (France) – January 22, 2018

 

PRESS RELEASE
THE ART OF TOKAIDO Kickstarter campaign is NOW LIVE!


 

The Art of Tokaido
The Kickstarter campaign is NOW LIVE >> Back the campaign HERE! 

After having released a PDF file of THE ART OF TOKAIDO to the backers of the first Tokaido Collector’s edition campaign, we received so many demands for a physical edition of the book that we decided to create this campaign to help this project to come to life! Be sure not to miss it!

>> Spread the word if you want to help us >> FacebookTwitter, InstagramLinkedIn.
Thank you all! 

 

A great collaboration
Antoine Bauza (Tokaido designer) and Naïade (Tokaido illustrator) worked with Funforge to make THE ART OF TOKAIDO as interesting as possible. Therefore, the book includes unseen sketches by Naïade and unpublished texts presenting Tokaido and its peaceful atmosphere.

Gathered in a single work for the very first time, all of the original graphical creations and all of the illustrations that make the singular universe of Tokaido. With THE ART OF TOKAIDO, you will slip behind the scenes of the creation of the cards, the characters, the expansions, and even the video game. Also discover the “rejects” of Tokaido, all those ideas that never progressed beyond a rough state, but just as easily could have walked the magical road along the East Sea.

 

Overview
The mockup pictures below show you an overview of the physical version. If you love beautiful books, you will be rewarded here 🙂 All Tokaido fans, Japan fans and book lovers will travel through 240 pages of exclusive content.

The art book presents the WHOLE Tokaido™ product line:

Tokaido (original edition of the game),
Crossroads (1st expansion),
Matsuri (2nd expansion),
Tokaido Collector’s Edition (Kickstarter),
-Tokaido Digital (iOS AppStore, Google Play, Steam),
Tokaido 5th anniversary edition (new regular edition of the game).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With your support
The digital artbook is already far greater and documented than originally thought, and it would be even better with this edition. At first, we just wanted Tokaido to have its own background book and now there will probably be a physical edition, thanks to this Kickstarter campaign 🙂

 

 

 

IMPORTANT PRECISIONS
The physical copy will be ENGLISH ONLY but Funforge will also provide a French pdf file for the French speaking readers (no other languages are part of this campaign).

STRETCH GOALS to discover! Stay tuned and spread the word if you want to hold the art book in your hands 🙂

The publishing of the Tokaido™ product line and its 350,000 units sold worldwide (at the present day) achieved to establish Funforge as one of the world’s leading boardgame publisher. The quality of its products and the prestige of internationally renown authors gave the publisher several prices in jury and international press.

Gametime: 30 to 45minutes
Age: 8+

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.
