Japan inspired board game Tokaido is now out in digital form on Steam


Creator reveals that 350,000 copies of the physical game have been sold to date

If you partake in hobbyist gaming you’ve probably heard ofTokaido(or have seen the box in a hobby store). It’sbeen out for good while in the tabletop arena, and creator Funforge explains that to date, it’s sold 350,000 copies worldwide.Its chief designer, Antoine Bauza, also helped craft one of my favorite board games — 7 Wonders –– which is also just making its way into the digital arena (on iPad).

That success led to a breakout Greenlight campaign, which eventually allowed the team to releaseTokaido on Steam. It’s now for $10, and follows the exact same rules as the board game, which sees players traveling along theTokaido road, based on the real location in Japan. The object is to experience as many Earthly desires as possible while you’re moving about, which are essentially converted into victory points.

There aren’t many reviews yet so we’re attempting to get a copy now for coverage.
