Tokaido is a board game for 2-5 players aged 8 and up. It is relatively simple to play with each game taking approximately 45 mins and has attractive minimal artwork.
In Tokaido, each player is a Traveller crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While travelling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places. The winner of the game is the player who discovers the most interesting and varied things along the route.
The action spaces are laid out on a linear track, with players advancing down this track to take actions. The player who is currently last on the track takes a turn by advancing forward to their desired space and taking that action. Players must choose whether to advance slowly in order to get more turns, or to travel more rapidly to beat other players to their desired action spaces.
There are a variety of actions in the game that will score in different, but roughly equal ways. For example, some action spaces allow players to collect money, while others offer players a way to spend that money to acquire points.
Other action spaces allow players to collect sets that score points and others simply award players points for stopping on them, or give the player a randomly determined action from all of the other types.
Tokaido is very simple to play, is peaceful in concept and is combined with great minimal design work so it looks great in your collection.
