Machi Koro is a fast-paced game for 2-4 players. Each player wants to develop a city on their own terms in order to complete all of the landmarks under construction faster than their rivals.
On their turn, each player rolls one or two dice. If the sum of the dice rolled matches the number of a building that a player owns, they get the effect of that building; in some cases opponents will also benefit from your dice (just as you can benefit from theirs). Then, with money in hand a player can build a landmark or a new building, ideally adding to the wealth of their city on future turns. The first player to construct all of their landmarks wins!
