Game of the Week

The game of the week is Sprawlopolis!

Jackhammers chattering, trucks beeping, engines roaring, the sounds of construction are everywhere. Sprawlopolis is growing and YOU are in charge of it all. The last team of planners couldn’t cut it, so the city turned to your team, the best of the best. If anyone can turn this tiny town into a thriving civic center it’s you.

From David Wiley / Cardboard Clash:
If you want to feel hopelessly incompetent, this is the solitaire experience you’ve been looking for. Or maybe I’m just that bad at the game, boasting about a 20% win rate. I’m not complaining, though (okay, maybe I am a little bit) because this game is quick and clever and exactly what you hope for in a pocket-sized city-building game. The variable scoring conditions ensure hundreds of possible combinations to try without ever repeating the same game, and each presents a unique challenge for how to maximize your points in conjunction with the other objectives. Technically this can be played cooperatively with up to four players, but the risk of invoking a blood feud over poor play is much lower when playing by yourself. In all honesty, this game is (in my humble opinion) one of the best games of the previous decade and if you haven’t tried it yet, you should do yourself a favor and print this out to try today. The amount of variety in 18 cards is mind-boggling and enjoyable.
