Move pawn around tiles representing the city, use cards for special benefits (moving dragons, extra move, etc) and spending cards of a given color in order to place a cube on the tile. When cube spots on tile are filled, players with cubes on the tile earn rewards and tile flips. Players periodically move to the center of play area to spend crystals to build the obelisk, which is how the game is won.
One of our all-time favorite games. Beautiful, the rebuilding theme is appealing, works well at two players, and gets better the more you play. We tried Blue Moon/Blue Moon Legends a few times and were sorely disappointed but Blue Moon City is the bees knees.
Very nice game; tough decisions, pretty components, and fast-moving. Another good Knizia. I was hoping for another stellar Knizia, but I knew that this shared next to nothing with the original Blue Moon--so I wasn't too disappointed. [EDIT] It seems to work really well, but it almost always ends with every other player one turn away from winning; that is not a good sign.
This certainly has the feel of another "Reiner Math Puzzle". While this sounds like an insult, it isn't. I like Reiner's games (most of them, at any rate). I can appreciate what he's done here, but the only thing I don't understand is why he didn't have any TWO POINT CRYSTAL tokens included -- just one and three crystals. This is quite odd to me. Still, this isn't a bad game... I enjoy it.
After three games on the same evening, each of which had rules errors due to the teacher having been taught incorrectly, I will play this again. I don't think I'm going to suggest it though. Rating may change after playing correctly. 2009-09-24 Having played it correctly the rating isn't changing, it is a high 7 though.
[GAUDET] Nice, quick resource management and economics game. I was surprised how quickly a game can be over. There almost always seemed to be one obvious play, but I still enjoyed the gameplay and I can see many great possibilities.
Quite fun, though I'm nearing 10 plays and still not sure how much of a factor luck of the draw is. Also the game is pretty tight...it can feel like you were just a turn away from winning every time (though really I suspect had you played a little better you might have won).
