Product Description:

The town of Machi Koro is a dismal sight: a single wheat field, a bakery, and some coins. But, under its newly elected mayor (you!), the town is ready to grow! The game starts with a series of 15 cards laid out in the center of the table. Each card represents an establishment, ranging from wheat fields to stadiums, and has an associated dice value (such as 9-10) and an effect, such as "get one coin from the bank on anyone's turn." Some cards let you take money from the bank, and some force other players to pay you! Players take turns rolling the dice, checking if they get any money from their cards, and building more cards to make more money. As the game progresses, players can build fancier, more expensive buildings which provide more income, effects, and cover a wider range of die rolls. The ultimate goal is to construct all four unique starting cards, which are expensive but provide a significant bonus to your other establishments. The first player to build all four wins! For those looking for an easier, more casual strategy game with plenty of fun and replayability, this fits the bill. ~30 minutes. For 2-4 players.

Publisher Description:

Welcome to the city of Machi Koro, the Japanese card game that is sweeping the world! You`ve just been elected Mayor. Congrats! Unfortunately, the citizens have some pretty big demands: jobs, a theme park, a couple of cheese factories, and maybe even a radio tower. A tough proposition since the city currently consists of a wheat field, a bakery, and a single die. Armed only with your trusty die and a dream, you must grow the sleepy town of Machi Koro into the largest city in the region. You will need to collect income from developments, build public works, and steal from your neighbors coffers (just make sure they aren`t doing the same to you)! They say you can`t build Rome in a day, but Machi Koro will be built in under 30 minutes!

The Smash hit Spiel Des Jahres nominee is back in an all new, better than ever edition! All new 3D molded custom coins in three sizes and colors no more punchboard money! Brand new 20mm chunky dice & reworked rulebook for even simpler set up and play! New spot UV and gold foil on box set it apart from other games on the shelf!

Fun Game for a Couple or Group
Machi Koro is a great family game, whether you play with 2, 3 or 4 players. As you play, you learn different strategies, and depending on the number of players, those strategies change. Entertaining and can be pretty quick if you're not looking up to take up a whole afternoon or evening. Would definitely recommend it to other board game lovers!
