Each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, players will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas and visit temples and wild places.

At the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you'll have to be the most initiated traveler – which means that you'll have to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.

  • Surprisingly cutthroat. Wasn't playing this for that.
  • Gentle, relaxing - but a bit thin.
  • A chilled out experience. I enjoy the aesthetics and the general idea; This is essentially road trip the game. However, I don't think there's much strategy or replayability here. The lack of the former is not a problem for me since I don't think all games need that, but the lack of the latter one kinda is.
  • I've only played the app I think you need multiple players for this game up shine.

Always enjoyed board games, playing a lot of the classics growing up. Then proceeded to the occasional Catan games with friends. Then a few years ago I believe I came across TableTop on Youtube with Wheaton and the #Tokaido gameplay made me realize there was much more out there. Loved Tokaido and eventually found it on BGArena while discovering some other games in the process like #Takenoko. Finally decided to get some of our own over the past years like #Codenames , #Risk: Game of Thrones and #Sushi Go!

Wasn't until our purchase of #Disney Villainous a couple years ago that we thought we could eventually have a small collection one day. While we did make a few additions over time and loved playing, it wasn't something we looked into much. Fast forward to 2020. Being someone who plays and follows a lot of sports, obviously many things were paused due to the pandemic. While unfortunate, this gave me time to look into other things, like board games!

I went back and continued to learn new games to me on BGArena like #7 Wonders , #Lost Cities , #Puerto Rico among many others. Being someone who loves to plan and research, found myself learning a ton in such a short time as I continued the deep dive into my newest hobby. Learned about content creators, got TableTop Sim to try out stuff, and of course added to the wishlist and the collection. 

These days our collection is taking shape slowly but surely (budget and room). I'm usually the teacher now so I do like to cater it to games I enjoy that I know my GF and friends will also like. Don't see myself having hundreds of games or anything, but plan is to start adding some variety in weight as well with games like #Architects of the West Kingdom , #Viticulture: Essential Edition and #Spirit Island high on the wishlist. Weight doesn't matter though as I will enjoy and have fun with any and all games as long as our group is having fun. I find myself learning more about the industry now to maybe take part in things like rule book writing when I can. The board game hobby and its community has been a joy to discover throughout the year and has def been the bright spot of 2020. 

PS. Still plan on owning Tokaido someday :)

Out of the two you mentioned I've only played Yokohama.  Parks reminds me of #Tokaido based on the write up.  Out of the two Yokohama would be my pick by far.  

I took a look at your games list to get some hints but at 500+ games it's sort of hard to narrow it down!  

What games are you finding you really enjoy right now?  Are you looking for more of the same or something different?

I played four games last week in the "shelf of shame challange."

I have outlined my experiences with these games in my posts. But, suffice to say that I enjoyed them, even though the first three games were in app form.
