Where to buy Machi Koro

About this game

Welcome to the city of Machi Koro. 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 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!

Machi Koro is a fast-paced game for 2-4 players. Each player wants to develop the city on his own terms in order to complete all of the landmarks under construction faster than his rivals. On his turn, each player rolls one or two dice. If the sum of the dice rolled matches the number of a building that a player owns, he gets the effect of that building; in some cases, opponents will also benefit from your die (just as you can benefit from theirs). Then, with money in hand a player can build a landmark or a new building, ideally adding to the wealth of his city on future turns. The first player to construct all of his landmarks first wins!

Machi Koro is a very fun game to play with people that like a small weight game. The game is not difficult to play and teach, but each player can make their own strategy in the game. Do you buy the blue buildings and hope that your opponent rolls the numbers you need? Or do you take the red buildings and steal all money from your opponent. Finding the correct balance will help you win the game! Figuring out a good strategy or trying to disrupt the strategy of your opponent is a fun part of the game.
