This edition includes a new box artwork, new cards design, new player boards, a redesigned game board, new meeples, new panorama cards, etc.
In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places but at the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you'll have to be the most initiated traveler – which means that you'll have to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.
The potential action spaces in Tokaido 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 on the track to their desired action and taking that action. So, 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.
The action spaces allow a variety of actions which will score in different, but roughly equal, ways. 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 engage in various set collections which score points for assembling those sets. Some action spaces simply award players points for stopping on them, or give the player a randomly determined action from all of the other types.
All of the actions in Tokaido are very simple, and combined with a unique graphic design, Tokaido offers players a peaceful zen mood in its play..
Had to cancel my order for it after it was not delivered after many months of waiting. There was zero communication from wellplayed about this delay until I reached out. Based on this experience I would not order from wellplayed again. I’m sure the game itself is lovely and I hope to be able to order it from somewhere else.
Thank you very much for your open and honest feedback. We are always trying to improve ourselves and this help us a lot.
The product you ordered is globally not available it is out of print and back ordered since a long time. I know this does not help but due tot he Pandemic some games are just out of production for a long time.
We would love for you to give us another chance, but I can understand that you might not want to.
We wish you all the best, take care.
