Like the above, this is likely not a great game.  Unlike the above, I wish it was because the theme speaks to everything I love in life: Meat.

Funforge put together 175 new copies of the Tokaido CE (the painted one I believe) and is doing a Kickstarter for the remaining stock. It's an absolutely gorgeous and p fun game. Also, at $115 (if they price it like hte original KS), it's a fucking steal. The Kickstarter is this coming Monday and will likely sell out that day.

I almost bought Tokaido at a convention purely based on it looking good, but I didn't know anyone that had played it and didn't manage to make it to a demo.  That CE looks amazing & kind of tempting.

Thanks for the heads up.  Bummed I missed it the first time around.  Will probably try for it.

HAVING SAID THAT, while I've had fun with the game, sometimes I have a hard time figuring out where the game is in Tokaido.  It honestly feels like you are just playing against yourself/the deck/luck, and not other players most times.  But its still a fun game to sit around and play, visually.

To manage expectations; they sold remainder copies of Tokaido CE on facebook for several times original KS price - so I wouldn't expect 115usd.

People seem to be going ape shit over this.  Whole lot hatred in the comments section for the original project and reddit, with many saying its against Kickstarter rules to sell an existing product on kickstarter, and they are reporting them.  Sounds like the whole thing may turn into a train wreck fast.

I assume funforge are smart enough to call it "5th anniversary CE".

Also KS give zero fucks about their existing product policy. They get 10% either way.

Yeah, no idea if they actually enforce it.  Just seeing a whole lot of nerd rage over this, haha.

But yeah, if they jack the price up a bunch, not going to bother either way.

Its up for 150 EUR. For 4 days or until 175 units go.

Edit : plus 50 EUR shipping

I'd regard it as ok value. But not great value as the original was.
