About the event

This Workshop Wednesday we are teaching and playing The Adventures of Robin Hood & Tokaido.

The Adventures of Robin Hood: 7.6

In England in 1193, the county of Nottinghamshire suffers under the yoke of evil Prince John and his henchmen. Can Robin Hood and his companions escape the sheriff's guards and complete their adventures successfully?

In The Adventures of Robin Hood, players take on the role of Robin Hood and his companions, with the action taking place on a living game board with no set paths. The board changes over the course of each adventure and the movement of the characters are handled via an innovative mechanism that uses different-length wooden character pieces. Various actions and secrets are integrated into the game levels and are revealed only in the course of the story. The game board "remembers" what players have already explored or found, and thanks to the special materials, the entire game can be set up and dismantled quickly.

Instead of using cards as in the author's Legends of Andor, the game tells the story of Robin Hood in a high-quality hardcover book and depending on the decisions the players make, the story changes...

Tokaido: 7.0

In Tokaido, each player is a traveler crossing the "East sea road", one of the most magnificent roads in 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.

The potential action spaces in Tokaido are laid out on a linear track, with players advancing down this track to take action. The player who is currently last on the track takes a turn by advancing forward on the track to their desired action and taking that action, so players must choose whether to advance slowly in order to get more turns or to travel more rapidly to beat other players to their desired action spaces.

The action spaces allow a variety of actions that will score in different, but roughly equal, ways. Some action spaces allow players to collect money, while others offer players a way to spend that money to acquire points. Other action spaces allow players to engage in various set collections that score points for assembling those sets. Some action spaces simply award players points for stopping on them or give the player a randomly determined action from all of the other types.

All of the actions in Tokaido are very simple and combined with a unique graphic design, Tokaido offers players a peaceful zen mood in its play.

Come join us on Wednesday, March 15th @ 6:00 pm to learn any of these games for Workshop Wednesday. See ya soon!
