Shinjuku is a strategic network-building and pick-up-and-deliver board game set in Tokyo.

In Shinjuku, you build department stores and the rail lines to connect them so that you can build the most successful shopping/rail conglomerate.

Rule Summary

Every turn, new customers will arrive on the map looking to purchase one of 4 different goods. On your turn, you choose 2 different actions from: (a) Open a store, (b) Expand your rail, (c) Upgrade to a department store, (d) draw cards as Income or (e) Move customers along the rail to stores.

You start with a hand of 4 location cards and get a new card each turn. The Build, Upgrade and Move actions require that you play a matching location card from your hand. Cards in your hand that match locations where you have previously built a store are Wild and can be used to match any location.

The game ends when the last customer is placed (+ one final round) and victory goes to the player that can create the most sets of each type of customer.
