I’ve had Tokaido on my Games Wish List for a while and I was able to play it tonight with my gaming group. The game is worthy of its accolades; the artwork is gorgeous and gameplay smooth and relaxing. After we finished, I asked for another round next week.
The photo above was my view at tonight’s table. It’s a beautiful setup, but there’s something the picture can’t capture: the “soundtrack” to the game that one of our group had playing through his phone. The music meshed perfectly with Tokaido’s calm and mellow theme and it was a nice change of pace for a Wednesday night.
