MACHI KORO BOARD GAME

Machi Koro is a light strategy game that is great for any age. Starting with just a lowly farm and cottage, you need to earn coins to buy better buildings to get even more coins. Your hope is to complete four pre-set city improvements that will win the game and help you big time along the way. The way it works is that a turn has a rolling phase and a buying phase.

In the roll phase, you roll 1 or 2 dice. If the number you hit corresponds to the top of the number on the card of any buildings you control, you get the money bonus it offers. In the buy phase, you spend coins you made from hitting numbers to buy new buildings from a communal pile in the center. The key is to buy lots to give yourself many chances to earn coins, eventually buying those expensive win conditions.

MACHI KORO - FAQ

There is no starting mechanism, use your randomizer of choice.
Yes. Machi Koro was the original launched in 2012 and Legacy is a stand-alone game that builds on that and adds a bunch more released in 2019.
Each player can only have 1 copy of each unique purple building but that is the only restriction. All the other buildings you can have as many as you can buy.
No. You choose each turn whether to roll one or two when this is built.
Payments are made in reverse turn order. Pay each opponent what you owe them, in full, before you pay the next opponent.
This is a different way to play the game. Instead of having all the cards/structures available to buy at all times, all the cards are shuffled and cards are revealed until you have stacks of 10 different cards. Once a pile is gone, you keep drawing until you have 10 different cards again. It is to mix it up so you can't have the exact same strategy each time.
