5X5 CITY (OKAZU Brand, 1 to 4 players, ages 8 and up, 30 minutes; 3000 ¥ [about $27])
Hisashi Hayashi is among the most prolific Japanese game designers, releasing four or five games a year through his OKAZU Brand label. These releases are roughly evenly split between longer, more complex games such as Yokohama (featured in the Summer 2017 Gamers Alliance Report) and shorter, more accessible games such as Rolling Japan (Winter 2015 GA Report). 5×5 City is in the shorter, more accessible category.
