Machi Koro adds another award to its growing list of accolades, as it was officially announced as the Geekie Award’s Best Tabletop Game of 2015! At a presentation that included special guests Ernie Hudson and Kevin Smith, Machi Koro received the prestigious Geekie Award, beating out stiff competition in the form of four other excellent tabletop games.
This continues the momentum of 2015’s breakout hit family game. In the past 12 months, Machi Koro has sold over 100,000 copies and is showing no signs of slowing down. With two expansions and a deluxe edition already on the market, the Japanese import continues to find ways to reach new audiences and bring more fun to its fans.
With the games selling quickly, there’s been reports of some fans not being able to find a copy. Don’t worry, IDW Games is doing everything they can to grant your holiday wishes! Here is your chance to write a letter to Santa Koro! A lucky handful of good little gamers will win special prize packs including the Machi Koro card game and one lucky fan will even win an advance copy of the Machi Koro: Harbor Expansion! Don’t be shy; Santa Koro wants to see you send your most creative pictures, letters, songs, or videos to help him and his red-nosed sidekick select the most-deserving citizens to receive Machi Koro before the holiday season is over.
Email your entries to Santa Koro at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make the subject of the email “Dear Santa Koro.”
