Description Edit | History

One of venerable game designer Sid Sackson's greatest contributions to the negotiation genre, this game has players trying to construct the best buildings in a rapidly growing city. The map is a collection of city blocks broken into smaller properties. Each turn, players choose one property and try to work out deal for placing a new structure on the board. The value of each building is determined by the type of buildings in the same block, so both a school and an apartment building receive bonuses for existing together.
