How To Play Machi Koro


Players assume the role of mayor of the city Machi Koro and build it, attempting to become the first player to complete four major landmarks.[1] On their turn, players roll one or two dice, earning coins when buildings are activated (when the dice roll matches the card's activation number and it is on an appropriate turn for the card color).[2] Each player's turn consists of three phases: dice roll, collecting income (from cards which are activated) and construction, which includes other income-producing buildings and landmark cards.[3]

Machi Koro Legacy Review

There are five types of cards, each with their own color and characteristics:

Machi Koro Legacy

  • Landmarks: Each player starts with four (the Harbor Expansion adds two more) unfinished landmarks that are developed over the course of the game. The first player to construct all of their landmarks wins.[2]
  • Primary Industry (Blue): These cards represent farms, mines, ranches, and similar industries. They earn the player money whenever anyone rolls the card's activation number.[2]
  • Secondary Industry (Green): These cards represent shops, services, and other businesses. They earn the player money whenever they roll the card's activation number.[2][note 1]
  • Restaurants (Red): These cards represent restaurants and similar establishments. They earn the player money from any other player who rolls the card's activation number. [2]
  • Major Establishments (Purple): These cards represent major businesses and increase the strategic element of the game. They earn the player money from other players (or activate another effect) whenever they roll the card's activation number.[2]


Two expansions have been released for Machi Koro. The Harbor Expansion (街コロプラス), released in 2012, expanded the base number of landmarks from four to six and allow the game to be played by up to five players. New rules were included to improve gameplay by changing how establishments and industries are made available for use/development. Additional industries and establishments related primarily to fishing and shipping were also added.[3]Millionaire's Row (街コロシャープ), was released in English in 2015,[4] added additional luxury-oriented establishments and high-tech industries, as well as a 'renovation' mechanic, which temporarily closes establishments.[5] In 2015, a Deluxe Edition was released in the U.S. combining the base game and both expansions.[6]

In 2016, the standaloneMachi Koro Bright Lights, Big City was released, featuring a combination of cards from the base game and both expansions.[7] In 2019, Pandasaurus Games released a legacy variant, Machi Koro Legacy, which changes the game rules and future gameplay each time it is played.[8]


Machi Koro was nominated for and received a number of awards on release. It won the 2015 Geekie Award[9] for Best Tabletop Game, and was a Spiel des Jahres[10] and As d'Or - Jeu de l'Année[11] nominee that year; it was a Le Lys Grand Public[12] finalist in 2014.
