Tokaido – was $7/£7, now just $2/£2

There’s been a lull in free apps this week, so in lieu of our usual free app of the week we bring you the slightly less exciting “discount of the week.” Full service to resume next time, we hope!

Tokaido is a slick adaptation of the popular board game of the same name. It’s a beautiful strategy game about exploring Japan, and best described by the developers:

“You are a traveler, in the heart of ancient Japan, walking the legendary East Sea road from Kyoto to Edo, trying to make the trek as fulfilling as possible. Discover the most magnificent landscapes, taste numerous culinary specialties, acquire rare and precious souvenirs, bathe in hot springs, visit the temples, and meet other travelers…. Tokaido is a rite of passage for the heart, walking in serenity and contemplation.But do not be fooled by the peaceful appearance of the voyage, because you will have to demonstrate stronger strategy than your opponents if you want to win! Whether you sneak along as a messenger, a geisha, or even a ronin, you must discover as many hidden marvels as you can along the road, so your journey is the most satisfying of all!”

This cost $7/£7 when it first launched back in March, and though the price has fluctuated ever since this is the cheapest it’s ever been. Remember that the physical version of this board game retails for $40/£40, so this is definitely the cheapest way to see if you like it. We don’t know when a sale like this might happen again, so if you have any interest in board games make sure to check it out pronto!
