Family Fun
This is a great time to chill out with family and try a new game. Our family love the game Machi Koro. It is a card game with a difference; a cross between the two classics, Monopoly and Uno, with a cool cultural twist. This game originates from Japan! Players take turns to roll the dice, earn income and construct their landmarks.

Machi Koro,
Machi Koro

Instead of buying hotels, you build landmarks and each different colour card represents a different industry everything from sushi restaurants to apple orchards. My personal favourite is the mackerel boat. It's the Park Lane of Macki Koro and it has always guaranteed my wins.

The winner is the first person to construct the four landmarks a train station, a shopping mall, an amusement park and a radio tower.

You earn your income to purchase cards when players roll a dice. For example, you have a wheat field and someone rolls a one, they will have to pay you the value of the card. It's fast and it's fun with most games lasting about a half-hour. But just one game is never enough!

The Cards

The great thing about this game is the ability to add on expansion packs. These expansion packs allow you to extend gameplay, add more industries and build more landmark. An innovative way to combine a classic old school boardgame with the expansion pack normally associated with online and video games. (In other words, it will appeal to your tech-obsessed kids).

The original game is designed for 10 years and older. It is playable for four players, with each additional expansion pack adding another player.

It's currently available on Amazon but a simple Google search may find a better deal than Amazon.
