Machi koro, one of the best board games ever created, will have a sequel. Machi Koro 2 It will be out October 6 for $ 30. Pre-orders are available now and will include exclusive cards you won’t find anywhere else. The announcement was made Tuesday in a press release from publisher Pandasaurus Games.
On Machi koro, players take on the role of urban planners trying to generate the most revenue for their city. Players buy locations, such as restaurants and convenience stores, from a shared pool and then roll the dice to see which establishments will pay for each round. The result is a simple yet exciting family card game in which players compete to build the most efficient engine possible.

The buildings are divided into three decks […], but only five types of cards from each deck are revealed at a time. You can no longer deposit your favorite forestry strategy! “
Landmarks, high-cost upgrades for your city, will also work differently, with each one getting more expensive as the game progresses.
