I have enjoyed Maji Koro since it first came out but this edition solves the major problems. There is a good video review of how to play the game by Tom Vassel on Boardgamegeek.com so for this review I want to concentrate on why I prefer this version to the original. The original version, which is in a light blue box was fine. It is a city building game using cards to build your 6 key buildings to win the game. These buildings have game effects once built. This version of the game uses many of the cards from the original game (+) cards from the 2 expansions (+) new cards. As I said earlier I enjoy the game and so does my wife, but if you buy the first edition and the 2 expansions you end up with a huge deck of cards to draw from and this can slow the game down so much as to make it unplayabe because you cannot get engines started. Engines are combinations of cards that let you earn money. On your turn you may buy one card to add to your city-the display of cards in front of you- after you first roll the dice. You need to build engines that give you larger amounts of money at a time because some cards steal money from you on your dice roll or allow you to steal set amounts of money based on your dice roll(1-3 dice) and the cards people have face up in front of them. There will be a set amount of cards available for purchase in a common pool area and when one is bought it is immediately replaced for the pool from various decks of cards. This edition was a Target edition and so availability may depend on your local situation. Check it out and see if you like it.
