I had an encounter and received the 3rd piece of the paddy panorama and got the 3 bonus points. Then it said that I had already completed that panorama and offered me a piece of a different one immediately after. Now that I think about it, an AI player may have already finished the paddy panorama but I also got the bonus, although I’m not completely sure if that’s the case. Also, whenever I try multiplayer there are no games available, not sure exactly why though. Other than those two things I’ve been using this app for awhile now and really love the game! Been waiting forever for crossroads though.
I don’t normally leave reviews or comments but I had never heard of this game and I saw a review of this app on my google feed and decided to read it. I became intrigued after reading about this game and the highly favorable comments by others and I started to look at the board game and I decided to give it a try for only 1.99. I cannot stop playing this game! The rules were a tad bit confusing and even the tutorial doesn’t fully explain everything so I went online and did some slight research on all the different spots you land on and how they work, and it was easy to understand how it all comes together. I only had to play twice to get an understanding of this game and I am blown away. Can’t believe I had never hear of this game earlier. I am strongly considering getting the board game now! My only gripe is: where is the expansion!? I hope they actually release it because it would make this amazing game even better. I seriously cannot stop playing. Once I started I gotta play like 5 games in a row(which take like 13 minutes a piece) but it’s so addicting even when you don’t win, you enjoy having played a round so much that I wanna play again and again! If you are on the fence about it, pick this game up. There are no bug crashes or glitches after only have this game for 2 days but I can’t keep my battery life! Get this now guys
I can’t reliably play on my ipad, because it crashes right when i open the app. I have to close the app and open other apps so it doesnt show in recently opened apps on the bottom of the home screen...and then sometimes it crashes mid-game. Then, I’m able to play continuously, so whne the game crashes is appears inconsistent. Also, I wish I could fast forward the animation, because I play solo and get tired of watching the AI’s run. And, when there are two slots, is the slot on top supposed to go first in the physical board game? I also get bored waiting for my turn and I cringe if I have to be the first to pick a location if there are two slots, because it meansI’ll wait extra long. Finally, I was playing the character that gets to pick the encounter. It was between picking a mountain or the sea. So picked the mountain so I could finish the set, then it went through some animation I finished and superimposed on top of that was a message saying I already finished the mountain set and pick again, so I picked sea and I got 2 paintings for one encounter. Lowered the game to ONE STAR because it’s buggy when playing online with friends. So frustrating. I can’t believe something so unstable was released and sold for money on the App Store.
Very solid implementation of the board game and really nice graphics. Some minor user experience issues: - If I tell the app, I don’t need the tutorial, it should be permanent. I don’t want to launch the app the next time and start with the tutorial again! - When you stop at a non-interactive location, such as painting or bathing, double confirm to move on is frustrating. Just display the card and proceed, don’t waste the user’s time! - Introduce turn-based multiplayer when each player has a specific time frame to respond because the current always online clearly doesn’t work.
My wife and two children love playing Tokaido on “pass and play” mode as part of our family game night. The game is great family fun. There’s one issue though with the way turns are generated when you reach a “double” space. What should happen, based on the rules available on line, is that the first (i.e., “bottom”) player gets the next turn. However, what is happening is that the second (“top”) player is getting that next turn... Hope you can update the game to fix that, otherwise this is a 5-star app.
