I just got a copy of Tokaido from my Reddit Secret Santa and the quality seems to be MUCH lower than when I previously played it. The colors look super muted and the panorama cards aren't even fully cut and SUPER flimsy "cardstock" as it's barely thicker than a piece of construction paper.



It shows it is made by Fun Forge and looks like it is a regular edition game.

Given that I've seen some counterfeit copies being sold on Amazon,

I'm curious if you happen to know if this could fall into that category, or if this version is simply really poor quality components.

The panorama cards are indeed of this quality and they do tear like this.

Thirded. Just unboxed and played for the first time. Was a bit surprised at having to separate the thin panoramic cards.

Thankfully, no tears, and sleeves make them feel as thick as the rest of the cards.

A quick note about my experiences about this.

Also, when I opened my deluxe edition box I was kind of surprised by the panorama cards. My first negative reaction was about something else though: There is a small, lighter border around the panorama cards in the deluxe. Looking at the same cards in my first purchased original edition, the cards are the same thickness and have small nubs where they were held together (although I can't remember pulling them apart, I must have).

Well. I like the original cards, and have switched them between the editions...
