Kotaku Reviews Tokaido for Your Phone
Kotaku gives a very positive review for the digital adaptation of Tokaido. "This is how board games should be adapted. I realise not every publisher can afford it, and for many players a literal adaptation of something like Caracssone is all they want, but Tokaido shows that board games in the digital realm can be so much more when a little extra effort is put into them.”

IGN Discusses T.I.M.E Stories
IGN looks at both what T.I.M.E Stories currently is and what it will become in the future. “A game that implements mystery solving, combat with big consequences, adventures throughout alternate histories and worlds, and an enigmatic universe filled with lore and supernatural intervention to take you and a group of friends on vastly different experiences that you’ll likely never forget."

Planet (Gizmodo): “Like most board games, this one takes some practice. My first two rounds involved a lot of back and forth with my roommates regarding the rules. I didn’t win any rounds initially, but by my second sesh when I played with my boyfriend (this is a two person-friendly game), I had my strategy down to a science, building my largest habitat regions around what the animal cards on the table demanded.”
