Today Pandasaurus Games announced the upcoming new edition of their popular dice rolling game Machi Koro. Machi Koro 2 is a standalone sequel to this family-friendly game from Japan. This isn’t a straight-up reprint with just some new art, instead, there will be a few tweaks to the gameplay. According to the press release from Pandasaurus, there are two major changes you can expect:
“Now, the cards available in each game are randomized, making each game you play different! Buildings are separated into three decks (1-6, 7-12, and landmarks), but only five card types from each deck are revealed at a time. You can’t bank on your favorite forest strategy anymore!
Players will complete three initial building rounds where they spend coins to choose the first buildings in their little towns. Landmarks also work different, as they each have unique effects and can be built in any order, but each one you build gets more expensive.”
You can preorder Machi Koro 2 now on the Pandasaurus website for $29.95, with the game releasing on October 6, 2021. They are also including three Landmark promo cards with every preorder.
