So many great new games… so many great upcoming games… so many great games that aren’t even new but that I haven’t had a chance to play yet! Here’s some of the games I’m most looking forward to playing!

Tokaido is one of my favorite board games of all time. It could be argued that the game doesn’t need any expansions and is perfect the way it is; the zen-like experience of playing Tokaido has yet to be surpassed by any other game I’ve played. The second expansion to this wonderful game looks very promising!

Tokaido is one of my favorite board games of all time, and now the Deluxe Edition is available! If you’re a fan of the original (and Deluxe Editions in general) then you might want to check this out. The most exciting changes to the Deluxe Edition are as follows:
- Larger board
- Includes the Crossroads expansion
- Miniatures are included
- Metal coins
- A music CD to add to the Tokaido ambiance

Too many games to play and not enough time! Most waking hours are spent feverishly working on our own game (currently entering public playtesting) and far too little time has been spent with all of the other fantastic board games in the world! Still, we manage to get in a few here and there!

The wonderful, zen-filled game Tokaido lets players recreate the journey from Kyoto to Edo along the eastern coast of Japan! Players take on the roles of unique travelers, each with their own talents; one might play the artist, the merchant or even the geisha! Tokaido is one of the most relaxing games I have ever played. Winning is not so much the priority as enjoying the journey, just the the trek that those centuries ago took on this storied road.
As usual, GNR is a mixture of dates, times and locations. I will dispense with the dates entirely because I honestly can’t remember and I doubt anyone cares too much. This edition of Game Night Report is ignoring all of the games that I mention/play on a regular basis, and focuses instead on four games that I had never played before. I do not own three of them at this time (at this time being the operative phrase), but the last entry I DO own; there will be a review posted of it very soon!
The Jester’s Court
The first entry is from International Tabletop Day. The other entries from The Jester’s Court weren’t on Tabletop Day, but instead at various other times.
