New Looks for Yokohama and Food Chain Magnate

by W. Eric Martin

Synapses Games will release a new edition of Hisashi Hayashi‘s Yokohama in August 2024 following a debut at Gen Con. (Time to start the Gen Con 2024 Preview!)

Gameplay in this release will remain the same as the original 2016 edition from OKAZU Brand other than the inclusion of the eleven tokens in the Achievements & Free Agents promotional item released in 2017.

The graphics, on the other hand, will be completely new, with the game boards being double-layered so that pieces sit in place. A separate kit will be sold with metal coins should you desire such a thing.

Synapses Games plans to follow up this release with a new edition of Yokahama: Roll & Write in 2025 and Yokohama Duel in 2026.

Lucky Duck Games has announced a partnership with Dutch publisher Splotter Spellen for the release of a special edition of Food Chain Magnate and its The Ketchup Mechanism & Other Ideas expansion.

Lucky Duck stresses that nothing about the gameplay will change from Jeroen Doumen and Joris Wiersinga‘s original design. Instead the publisher is working with Matt Paquette & Co. “to make significant changes to the game’s components including the addition of miniatures, a new milestone tracker, and a storage solution as part of the box. This Special Edition is planned as a one-off print run, and there is no retail release coming for this edition.”

This edition will be released solely in English via a Gamefound crowdfunding campaign that will launch on November 14, 2023.
