A beautiful and atmospheric game that is a lot of fun. The artwork perfectly compliments the theme, and everything is nicely presented with high quality printing and materials. The option to either play the board in a "single" or "return" journey is a nice touch for those looking for a shorter/longer variation.

Konnichi-wa Travelers! 6 July 2013
By S. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
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. The cardstock itself is thin and may not hold up well to serious play, so consider your playgroup or sleeves which will likely not hold in the vacuum-formed trayliner. Speaking of which, everything packs up neatly back into the box, so kudos for that design!

GAMEPLAY:
Once you get past the variety of colorful cards, it's very fast to pick up. First round with my mom (total game newb and not a killer-instinct in her body) and my sis (competitive recreationalist) and I (my sis calls me Hannibal and I ask which one, she replies both...at the same time) can finish a session in 35minutes. This is one of those odd games because if you're very hardcore, you'll mentally chalk it up as "light" and enjoy the zen-like quality of the game. If you're a beginner, it will certainly teach you about resource and initiative management as well as blocking and resource denial.

NEGATIVES:
This game is far from perfect, but that's like saying you're rained on but staring at a rainbow. You really don't mind some idiosyncracies or sometimes the perceived character imbalances. However, for veteran gamers, I can understand why they seldom would play this more than once: points. Everything you do generates points and sometimes it feels like clever maneuvers to block your rivals really didn't account for much. Even though there is an on-board points tracker, it seems like too many surprise points awards can sometimes thwart what you might have played as a stellar game. Thankfully the designers offered a few variants to give it a try, but I would add a couple of house rules namely no ties for objective awards so this limits collusion.

Get this game:
-because you enjoy aesthetic displays, seriously it's beautiful to non-gamers as well
-it's thematic and very light game, good for beginners
-you'll enjoy it win or lose without fretting over all the power-eking and power plays

Don't get this game if:
-the lightest game you'll play is Twilight Imperium
-you prefer casted soldiers over wooden meeples
-you don't like eurogames or non-combative themes

Walk the road to Edo carefully my friend. Travel well. 17 Mar 2013
By Fribian Saynt - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
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.

PROS:
- Not too hard to learn (watching some videos by Rodney Smith on Board Game Geek made it quicker)
- The board itself can fit on a fairly small table (although it is long, it is thin)
- The theme of the game is pretty neat, and has an oriental feel
- The game is not too long to play, but can increase with more players, or by playing lengthier scenarios
- Mistakes during the game can be fully corrected by counting up collected cards at the end of the game
- For as simple as the game appears on the surface, it has amazing depth when making decisions
- The components fit nicely inside the plastic insert and are held in by the board itself
- The game has style, luck of cards, and plenty of strategic moves if you can think ahead far enough

CONS:
- The point movement pieces are very tiny, so be careful you don't lose one. They are tiny flat round wooden tokens matching your meeple (road walker token)

PLAYER RECOMMENDATION:
- I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a seemingly simplistic game with more depth than what appears on the surface.
- For those who like a challenging game of staying focused with a lot of decisions to make along the way, and one that doesn't take the whole day to play, then this is probably for you.
- I wouldn't recommend it for those who just want a simple no brain game, but if you put it in front of some kids who know the rules, it would still be fun for them.

It's a journey 21 Aug 2013
By Cougaraphics - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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. It really delivers on the promise to give you the sense of adventure and journey. Meet people, buy souvenirs, enjoy a hot meal, take a bath...you decide!
I especially recommend it for fans of Japanese culture.

Give it a try before buying. 3 Dec 2013
By W. Giant - Published on Amazon.com
I love beautiful board games, and I really like low competition games, so I thought this would be perfect. However, this game is just a little too simple for me to find worth multiple plays. On my first play through I did pretty much everything I'd wanted to do, and felt like I had experienced the game about as much as I'd want to.

Pros:
Absolutely beautiful artwork
High quality components
Low competition

Cons:
Low replay-ability
Horrible box insert

The best analogy I can think of would be Takaido is like a gorgeous checkers set: it's simple to play, and the artwork sure makes it more fun to play than it would be otherwise, but at the end of the day it's still checkers.

It's a game I'd highly suggest giving a test play before purchasing. It might be exactly the thing you're looking for. I sure thought it would be for us, but it just didn't have enough going on to keep me interested.

A very fun family game 22 Aug 2013
By William P. Garner - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Wow, this game is simple to play but it depends on what the other players do. Great art work on the board and cards. You get to pick your character you want to be, each one has advantages in their own way. You get money depending on where you place your piece or sometimes draw cards or give to charity or buy things. It's a fun family night game, children and adults will have lots of fun.
