Type Secondary Industry
Cost 5
Activation 7
Get 3 coins from the bank for each Cow establishment that you own, on your turn only.
Cheese Factory is a Secondary Industry card in Machi Koro, available in the base game.

Gameplay Edit

When the card's activation number of 7 is rolled, the player with the card gets three coins from the bank for each card with the Cow icon he owns, on his turn only. Currently, the only card with a Cow icon is Ranch.

Strategy Edit

The per-turn expected value of the card depends on whether the player uses the Train Station establishment to roll two dice, and how many Ranches they own (here represented as "rch"):

$ value = \begin{cases} 0, & \mbox{one die} \\ 3 \times 6/36 \times rch, & \mbox{two dice} \\ \end{cases} $


$ value = \begin{cases} 0, & \mbox{one die} \\ .5 \times rch, & \mbox{two dice} \\ \end{cases} $

Number of dice rolled Value
Zero Ranches One Ranch Two Ranches Three Ranches Four Ranches Five Ranches Six Ranches
One 0
Two 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3

The card's value is multiplied again by how many Cheese Factories the player owns.
