Remember Our Trip is a board game in which players recreate a map of a city they visited together. After returning to your own country, you and the other players have gotten together to try to recall the map of either Kyoto or Singapore (depending on the game board you choose). You need to piece together the scenery of the map using fragments of your memories, with you earning bonus points if your memory matches that of the main board and other players.
In the game, each player has an individual image board, while everyone shares a common map board. Each of the twelve rounds of the game starts with the revelation of a “memory card”, which shows one of six patterns that players can build on their image board with image tokens that they draft. Over multiple rounds, you’ll compile image tokens next to one another, and if you have the right tokens in the right shape, you suddenly “remember” the building that matches the shape and image, placing that building on the shared common map and scoring points for it. You can additionally score points for completing buildings with image tokens that match buildings remembered by others, i.e., that they placed on the common board earlier. You’ve now remembered that building, too!
Each player also has objective cards and photo memory cards, and you can score points for satisfying them. If you can’t fit all of your image fragments into play, you lose points for scattered thoughts. For more difficult play, you can use the 7×6 area on the Kyoto or Singapore game board instead of the regular 7×7 area.
How to Play
- Flip a Memory Card
Flip over a Memory Card at the beginning of the round. Refer to the number on the card and place the same number of image tokens from the cloth bag onto the Action Board.
- Pick Image Tokens
In order from the start player, each player chooses one set of Image Tokens to take into their hand.
- Place Image Tokens onto the Image Board
All players will place their Image Tokens onto empty spaces of their Image Boards according to the Memory Formation (shape) stated on the Memory Card.
There are six types of Memory Formations as follows:
- Confirm a Location
When you fit adjacent Image Tokens to form a location on your Image Board, it can be confirmed as a location in your memory. This will score you points on your turn!
- Place a Location Tile
If the space where you’ve confirmed a location is empty on the Common Map Board, place the corresponding Location Tile on the Common Map Board.
- Score your Location
When you confirm a location, it is scored according to the type of location completed on your turn. In addition to the base points, you will gain a Memory Match Bonus if you match the Common Map Board.When all players have finished their turn, the round ends. When all 12 rounds are over, the final score is calculated.
Create a map of travel memories together
Players place image tokens on their personal boards and aim to complete their own maps, but the placement of location tiles on the common map board is highly interactive.
In addition to the location points and Memory Match Bonus that will be earned during the round, players will also score points based on various objective cards, photo memory cards, and also lose points if they are not able to fit all their image fragments.
In particular, the Memory Match Bonus requires you to build in the same location as the other players for bonus points, something that all players need to aim for.
Double-sided game board containing both Kyoto and Singapore maps
This game contains the maps of both Kyoto and Singapore. These two maps contain different sightseeing attractions, as well as different geographical features, so you can play over and over again.
In addition to the standard rules, there is an optional rule that will challenge players even more. The 7 × 6 map is more restrictive and reduces the standard 7 × 7 map by one column.
