Description Edit | History

Welcome to the city of Machi Koro. You've just been elected Mayor. Congrats! Unfortunately the citizens have some pretty big demands: jobs, a theme park, a couple of cheese factories and maybe even a radio tower. A tough proposition since the city currently consists of a wheat field, a bakery and a single die.

Armed only with your trusty die and a dream, you must grow Machi Koro into the largest city in the region. You will need to collect income from developments, build public works, and steal from your neighbors' coffers. Just make sure they aren't doing the same to you!

Machi Koro is a fast-paced game for 2-4 players. Each player wants to develop the city on his own terms in order to complete all of the landmarks under construction faster than his rivals. On his turn, each player rolls one or two dice. If the sum of the dice rolled matches the number of a building that a player owns, he gets the effect of that building; in some cases opponents will also benefit from your die (just as you can benefit from theirs). Then, with money in hand a player can build a landmark or a new building, ideally adding to the wealth of his city on future turns. The first player to construct all of his landmarks wins!

9 Machi Koro Event Expansion
I bought Machi Koro for a quicker version of Kingsburg, however MK doesn't have the events after every round, so I added some. Every round being after someone purchases a landmark. These events can both hurt, and stimulate the economy, which adds some decisions to the game I found lacking. If I purchase a restaurant, I may have to pay for it later if I get a surprise health inspection... I originally picked the National Holidays and Cultural events of Japan and matched thematic instruction to them. Then I added events that matched the cards available to play. Lastly I added Hidden Agendas that can be played with, giving separate win conditions to players who feel the game is too light, but may not be able to afford a heavier game. Underlined Titles are cards that I shuffle...

This is a tiny reference sheet that I use with my game that includes the great 3-deck variant. I wanted a small sheet to remind me the details since I don't usually have the rule book with me. Major props to hecose as I started from his reference and added to it.

8 Rulebook mini-size, fits inside a Pro Dual-Deck box
An add-on to the wonderful tip from monsieurtasse. Rulebook layed out to print on 1 page, and once folded fits inside a Pro Dual-Deck box. Print double-sided, fold in 4 according to pages layout, then fold the resulting "booklet" once more in 2. Letter and A4 versions included (I could only check the A4, so if any issue with Letter let me know).

11 Machi Koro 3d printable storage solution
These files define a card holder and a coin/dice organizer which fit into the german edition game box. The coin organizer has a hole on top to remove it easily from the game box and can serve as a bank during game play. In this new version 'H', a cap is added so the coins will stay in place in the box even if you turn the box upside down.
