If you are a fan of the acclaimed board game Tokaido, then you probably wish you could bring it along without the fear of losing any pieces or cards. The good news is that this zen game of rich travel experiences and Japanese vistas is now available for mobile devices.

It plays out like the physical board game itself. Choose your traveler and prepare to experience the delights of the “East Sea Road.” As always, the player with the richest travel experience earns the most victory points and wins the games.

The mobile version’s visuals also breath a lot of life into the board. Characters and panoramas are more beautifully animated. In addition to that, you and your friends can even enjoy the game on a single device with its handy Pass-and-Play feature. Bring the relaxing journey of Tokaido on your own travels and experience its distinct, Japanese charm wherever you go!

▲ Experience the board game that celebrates the joys of traveling from Kyoto to Edo.

The popular board game has now been compressed into a feature-packed phone app. You will be required to grab your best space engineering boots in order to pick, place, and rotate a large variety of components onto your pipe-structured spaceship. Each add-on has a different function, pivotal in your role of making a safe journey to your destination ahead of your opponent. For example, batteries help power-up your cannons, and storage units allow you to collect items!

After creating a character profile complete with your own avatar and nickname, dive into the intergalactic action. Tutorial mode is great for beginners or those who want a refresher of the rules. Campaign mode lets you embark on a progressive adventure, whereas Custom allows you control of the game. Custom mode includes switching between real-time or classic play and even adjusting the type of bots you will be competing against!

▲ Each blue square represents a component which has a specific function to bolster up your ship!

▲ Begin the space race, and deal with the elements that come hurtling your way!

▲ Too many components to remember? Tutorial mode will serve as a helpful reminder to keep you safely powering through the galaxy.

A unique feature made possible by this game becoming digital is that you can now play online against other opponents across the universe! If you prefer a more classic feel, you can even play in Pass & Play mode which allows you and a friend to switch play between one another on the same device.

This game is made even more exciting by the chance element to the gameplay. During each round, a card is drawn. Whether the card spells trouble for your spaceship, or helps you reach your goal of tallying up more cosmic credits is for fate to decide!
