This morning publisher Pandasaurus Games announced a stand alone sequel to the 2012 game #Machi Koro. Check out the full announcement and details below for #Machi Koro 2 available for pre-order now and releasing October 6th.
Are you excited? Did you love the original? If you are headed to Gen Con, will you check this one out?
We are so excited to announce the standalone sequel to Machi Koro - the smash-hit family-friendly dice game from Japan! Machi Koro 2 takes the original rules and adds new rules to deepen and vary gameplay so even veteran players will have new strategies to try!
There are two big changes from the original design, aside from all new cards:
Now, the cards available in each game are randomized, making each game you play different! Buildings are separated into three decks (1-6, 7-12, and landmarks), but only five card types from each deck are revealed at a time. You can't bank on your favorite forest strategy anymore!
Players will complete three initial building rounds where they spend coins to choose the first buildings in their little towns. Landmarks also work different, as they each have unique effects and can be built in any order, but each one you build gets more expensive.
✨ Like we've done with our recent new releases, we are also offering a pre-order promo for Machi Koro 2. Pre-orders* will include 3 additional Landmarks: City Hall, Private Club, and Renovation Company! ✨
*placed through the Pandasaurus webstore or participating game stores.
We will also be hosting Learn & Play events of Machi Koro 2 during Gen Con Indy (Sep 16-19).
Our team will teach you the rules of these new hot titles and then let you play a full game. What's more: the $2 spent on your event ticket can be applied to the price of the game if you buy it at the show!
