Machi Koro as a whole has a variation of options, but just like all expansions for games, we get more variety with them and Millionaire’s Row provides just that. This expansion provides players with 14 new establishment cards, (20 major establishment cards, and 60 regular establishment cards in all), 28 renovation tokens, along with one other very important change in the setup. Instead of laying out a grid of cards for all players to choose stacks of the individual establishments, all cards are now shuffled together and laid out to make a single row of 10 unique cards which makes up the marketplace. If you draw a copy of a card that is already in the marketplace, you simply stack the new card on top of the old one. This eliminates the old marketplace that allowed anyone to simply purchase however many cards of one type that they wanted. Now you can’t buy all of the bakery’s and win nearly 98% of the time by using that simple strategy. This is excellent considering it wasn’t hard to break the original Machi Koro game.
