Machi Koro is one of my favorite games of all time! There are so many opportunities for new strategies.

Machi Koro is our go-to game. While it might seem complex the first time out of the box, almost everything you need to know about the game is written on the cards themselves. What I love is that there are so many different strategies that work when playing this card game. There is no one “right way” to win. It has been a game night staple at our house for the last two years.
Machi Koro is also a great on-the-go game. You can ditch the box and fit the entire game into a plastic Ziplock bag. We’ve played Machi Koro at the local coffee shop, at the airport while waiting for a flight, while camping — all you need is a table, a bit of space, and a drive to win.

DORK DAD — ★★★★★
Machi Koro is one of my all-time favorite family games. Buy cards and build your city. Collect fees from other players as they visit your coffee shops and restaurants. Invest your money quickly, because it won’t be long before the other players are stealing it away.
Game Daughter 2 mops the floor in this game. She wins every time!
