What is the TOKYO SERIES?? 12 unique games from Jordan Draper about life in Tokyo that can be played stand alone or mixed together! You can learn more about the series on my website jordandraper.com, and read about the first three games that were on Kickstarter here. Now for the main event, brand new games!
TOKYO COIN LAUNDRY brings a laundromat into your living room! Utilizing miniature hand sewn fabric clothes, operable washers and dryers, and more, this title includes over a dozen unique games ranging from 5 to 45 minutes in length, conceived by various guest designers from across the globe. Offering a huge range of game types including dexterity, role playing and conflict, this anthology is perfect for any setting or player count!
TOKYO TSUKIJI MARKET is a heavy economic fishing game, where players will take on the role of Japanese fisherman, setting custom prices for their catch to sell to other players. On top of a completely-open, player-driven economy, significant game-to-game variability is provided by the randomized mix of the 8+ fish markets (including MASSIVE tuna auctions), driving your revenue strategies, while the 7+ support stalls can improve your ships and fishing abilities!
In TOKYO GAME SHOW you will host 5 rounds of a Japanese game show, inviting up to 5 of your friends to put on colorful wrist bands and compete in devilish mini games of your choosing! With over 50 games included in the box from 10 diverse categories, plus the option to use any of the other TOKYO SERIES titles as featured games, this party hit is perfect for any 'studio audience'!
Exciting news! I've teamed up with three Japanese designers and publishers to bring a few gems to the rest of the world, from Japan! Not only this, but I've re-themed all of them, translated them, added some development, and housed them in gorgeous debossed boxes. Add these games on for $20 each, or get all three together for $50 during the campaign!
Praise (based on the game HOMERO by Megumi Ebi), is a game about discovering genuine versus fake compliments. In Japanese culture, many people praise others as a cultural norm, but your true friends have to be discovered by their honest praises!
Colorful (based on MATCH ME! by OHTANI Tadashi, published by COLON ARC), is a game about categorizing and matching colors as a group. Each round a player will come up with a specific example within a broad topic, for the group to secretly match with a color card from their hand. After 5 rounds, cards are checked to see if the group or an individual wins!
Cactus (based on TRIBE, designed by Naotaka Shimamoto, published by itten), is a dexterity game where players compete for flowers in the desert by stacking strange colored shapes onto... cactus! Cactus shares around half of the pieces with Tribe (plus many new), a desert re-theme (my home territory!), and around a 50% size reduction.

After you have pledged, you can add any dollar amount to your pledge to receive the items of your choice from the list below. You will select the items you add-on during the survey from Backerkit, after the campaign ends.
Luckily we have roll over from the stretch goals of the last Kickstarter, since consistency is my middle name! On top of the best quality in the industry, there will be printing inside of all of the TOKYO SERIES boxes, an embroidered linen bag for the new currency, and more! Let's keep unlocking new stretch goals to see what else is in store!

Risks and challenges
This being my 7th Kickstarter, I am prepared entirely to tackle any challenges that pop up. The biggest struggles in the past have been manufacturing sample changes, and the logistics of fulfillment. I have dedicated partners for every facet through to fulfillment delivery, and I can't wait to get started on these exciting new games!
