You can now travel the East Sea Road in a deluxe-y way in the United States
Asmodee and Funforge and bringing Tokaido Deluxe Edition (design: Antoine Bauza, art: Xavier Gueniffey Durin) to the North American market this year. Tokaido is the classic welcoming game where players are trying to collect souvenirs, soak in hot springs, discover vistas, and try out fine cuisine. The deluxe edition features a bigger box to accommodate the new, giant game board. It includes everything from Crossroads (additional cards, character tiles, unpainted figures, and rulebook), metal coins and fabric bag, and a soundtrack CD (apparently they still make CDs).
In June Funforge put all crowdfunding projects on indefinite hold, including the spiritual successor to Tokaido, Namiji, citing financial troubles. The company stated they would need to build more capital through retail sales before continuing their future projects. Hopefully this new partnership with Asmodee points to greener pastures for Funforge.
Tokaido Deluxe Edition is available for preorder through the Asmodee shop.
