Tokyo Metro PbP - Recruitment and discussion thread

From BGG:

In TOKYO METRO , players take on the role of private investors looking to build up stations across Tokyo, speculate on train lines, and comprise a shared network to benefit multiple parties. The core of the game is built around worker placement, which opens up three possibilities:

  • Walking and riding trains across the Metro map, in order to build new stations at advantageous locations for income when trains pass through.

  • Investment into train lines, either by purchasing stock and becoming a shareholder in the line, or by speculating on a train line you do not own stock in, in order to potentially double your speculation.

  • Build up your available actions, by purchasing more action discs, purchasing discarded action cards for personal use, or gaining tokens for a specific use.

Any interest? It plays up to five, and I’d probably run it (without taking part) using screenshots from the TTS mod:

I read the first sentence as ‘private investigators’ and spent the rest of it being very confused.

I’ve got a few PbP’s going currently so I’ll probably say no. However, if you need a 4th or 5th player then I’ll happily make up the numbers (and come last)


I’ll catch the next game. I’d really jump right on this one but I’ve got too much going on right now. Shame, since it means I won’t learn enough about the game until after the current Kickstarter finishes.
