CitiesUP is a new town simulation board game designed for 2 to 4 players and is Spectacled Bear Games’ first project on Kickstarter. During the game players will build various types of buildings (including residential, commercial & industrial) and will need to supply them with services (such as water and electricity) if they are to collect taxes from them.
This game differs from other city simulation games in that the buildings grow upwards as well as horizontally. The buildings are comprised of hand-crafted oak building tokens starting from 0.78in(2cm) cubes insize – the tallest building will be 3.12in tall. The game also features ‘field cards’ (event cards) that are drawn on each player’s turn and may affect that player or the whole city.
There are not many stretch goals, but there is the possibility of the game’s first expansion – Banks & Farms – being included in this package. The campaign runs until 21st January 2016 has an estimated shipping date in July 2016. For more information you can visit the Kickstarter page here.
