“Build your city and claim rewards”

The premise of the game is you are building a city in a 5 by 6 grid. Rows are colors columns are numbers on a 6 sided dice(see above picture in game description). Each player gets a player board as described above and 5 different colored dice to match the colors on the side of each row.

There are four categories of cards that you can purchase to improve your city.

Harvest resources locations: Which are always available until they run our.

Advanced location cards: They are displayed for purchase 8 at a time.

Bandits: The amounts vary based on number of players. Attack and defeat to score VPs.

Trade ships: Purchase using recourse to collect VPs.

A turn consist of Rolling dice then assigning them to the proper row and column. Collecting resources or other benefits form the card where dice landed. Then using the resources to purchase harvest cards, advanced cards and or trade ship to increase the production or military value of the town. You can also use military to attack bandits or other play res cities.

Dice can be used for various other tasks which are covered in the rules.

There are several ways for the game to end. Such as depleting multiple stacks in the 4 categories describe above or by filling a row with harvest resources cards or advanced city cards.

Good for all ages and very easy to teach. The game moves very fast after the initial few rounds where new players are learning the game.

Great replay-ability becasue the advanced cards come up in a different order and the ability to place them anywhere on the board. The randomness of the dice roll also adds to this. End game scoring involves bonuses for completion of rows and bonuses form many of the advanced cards.
