💎 In this game, players build up the city Rome, tile by tile in a ‘I cut you choose’-style!
💎 Players all have their own stack of tiles and start with 4 gems each
💎 At the start of a round players place 5 tiles open in front of them and place the buildings for that round on the first 2 tiles. At this point everybody is able to see what lies there.
💎 Then, players divide the tiles in 2 groups, placing a gem with the smallest group. Players reveal their options and pick one option from their neighbours (as indicated by the roundcard).
💎 With the new tiles they build up a land, gaining points at game end per building that is located next to lands in that particular color.
💎 After 4 rounds the game ends. Players score points per building and for the gemstones they have earned! Highest points wins the game.
Overall I’m mostly charmed by the accessibility of this ‘I cut-you choose’ game. It’s incredibly straightforward and games are short.
👍 its accessibility
👍 the little buildings are very cool
👍 every game is a new puzzle to solve
👍 little to no downtime
➖at 2p count it gets a bit repetitive, better at 3+ for the tension
