Adult Game Night - Featuring "Tokaido" - Tuesday, April 21 @ 6 P.M.

Adult Game Night meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6 P.M. In April, gamers will play Tokaido, from the creator of 7 Wonders.

Description of the game from BoardGameGeek.com:

In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads of Japan. While traveling, you will meet people, taste fine meals, collect beautiful items, discover great panoramas, and visit temples and wild places but at the end of the day, when everyone has arrived at the end of the road you'll have to be the most initiated traveler – which means that you'll have to be the one who discovered the most interesting and varied things.
