Yokohama Board Game

Yokohama at Rigoler

The designer Hisashi Hayashi and illustrator Ryoko Hayashi of the board game Yokohama (横濱紳商伝) were at Rigoler last Sunday. There was a special event for the game with signed copies available that had quite the turnout, with the game actually selling out.

I was running a D&D one-shot at the time, so couldn’t actually participate, but the game looked fun! The system seemed intriguing and the idea of playing merchants in the city I live had a certain appeal. Definitely hope to give it a try next time I’m at Rigoler. You can check out the publisher’s blog in Japanese for some more photos and info about the event.
