As with all my boardgame reviews, I heavily encourage readers to peruse through boardgamegeek.com for a plethora of information, videos, and community posts. Now onwards!

Konnichiwa gamers and would-be game owners. I've had my eye on Tokaido for a while and took an easy plunge with it, but haven't really gotten an opportunity to give it a good go until recently.

Tokaido is a beautifully illustrated and light boardgame about traveling across Japan's famous 33-stop journey from Kyoto to Edo. This is an essence a "race" game but a strangely counter-intuitive one as you want to cleverly reach key destinations before other players and score as many points by the end of the journey in order to win.

The game really exists with a minimum of 3 players, but dramatically increases in difficulty with each additional player as resources become more hotly contested. You'll be cutting each other off for panaromas by going to vista points, visiting shops to buy curios, even meeting strangers or donating money at the shrines. There are a variety of "characters" that play differently and thus require a tweak in your overall strategy, some who will naturally pit certain players against each other with their natural advantages (the Magistrate and the Entertainer for example benefit from Encounters).

Without delving into the rules, I'll jump into the skinny of the game.

COMPONENTS:
This was the driving force behind buying the game. It has gorgeous and whimsical art, simple layout and well thought-out keys across the main board. The pieces are classic wooden "meeples" and all the cards are crisp and printed cleanly.

I bought this game from Cloudcap Games in East Portland, and based on their input about liking the game, and about it being fun, I purchased it (along with Suburbia).

This is a pretty good game and not too difficult to learn. It can be played 2 to 5 players. You travel the Tokaido road (ending at Edo) earning points along the way by stopping at villages to collect souvenirs, having encounters, donating to temples, earning coins, collecting panoramic photographs, and eating expensive meals at the Inns. Some events along the way can possibly help your traveler as well.

After playing my first 2 player game, I realized this game is amazing for what it is. For as simple as it appears, it has a lot of depth and a lot of choices to make along the way. The depth will increase in complexity with more players, because you need to carefully consider your choices based on your powers, what your opponents powers are, how much money you have, how many achievements you and your opponents have, etc. Amazing design! Someone thought this design out very well. You have to concentrate and stay focused or you'll lose your rear end, no doubt about it.

One very nice touch I really like about this game is the fact that you collect everything along the way (in the form of cards) which is essentially your score. So if there's any dispute about who won (or because someone might of made a mistake), you can literally count up your points right off the cards you collected.

As someone who considers themselves a gamer on every level - from card games, to video games, to board games - this game exceeded my expectations. In fact, I never even had expectations to begin with, since a couple of friends introduced me to it during a get-together. Needless to say, I was hooked.

The gameplay:
Relying not on cutthroat competitive mechanics, it instead rewards those with patience and calm. This was a key element of the game for me, which really made it stand out from others in the genre. Having a multitude of different characters to choose from (albeit semi-random) increases replayability and experimentation with the various "perks" each character comes with. The rules are fairly straightforward, however since the concept is not a "race to the finish", it can be confusing for new, inexperienced gamers at first. But trust me, after one game under your belt, the rest will be a breeze.
The designers did a great job of balancing the mid-game with the end-game. As the saying goes, "it's not over 'til the fat sumo sings" (is that how it goes??), because you don't always have a clear winner until the final points are tallied.

The Art:
It's pretty rare for board games to be praised for artwork, but this game is gorgeous to look at! The colors are bright, yet not overly saturated to make your eyes bleed. It sticks close to the Japanese theme, even down to the physical coins which look like the old form of currency called "mon". All of the characters are stylized and unique. It's a treat to complete panoramic scenes, and even the food cards make you drool. Another piece of sushi, please!

Conclusion:
Whether you're a hardcore gamer, or a casual player, this game is a ton of fun.
