Players are rival builders racing each other to develop a city by building luxury homes, airports, malls, business centers, etc. Each round, players construct buildings, score victory points, and receive income. Once any player has reached 50 or more victory points, the game ends. The player with the most victory points wins!
The City is a fast-paced, simultaneous-play, filler type race game that typically plays 20-30 minutes and scales well with all numbers of players (ages 10+) ranging from 2 to 5.
