The sets range from lifelike and grounded depictions of modern terrorism and civil uprisings in prehistoric eras with the first men fighting mammoths with batons, near post-apocalyptic futures to homages to cheesy action films of the 80s soaked in neon. . As the name suggests, nothing is out of reach for a board game spinoff in this series.

It is essentially a road trip experience with players traveling the famous East Sea route in Japan, encountering unique experiences along the way.

In addition to several physical extensions, there is even a mobile version of Tokaido for iOS and Android devices. Otherwise, Funforge has mainly been involved in the localization and distribution of board games, including Agricola and Patchwork, as well as video game adaptations like Dark Souls: The Card Game, and Bloodborne: the board game in France.
