Warsaw: City of Ruins
(2-4 players; 45 minutes; ages 10+)
In the exceptional game, Capital, you build the city of Warsaw – making points with culture and by making sure parkland is close to residences. Commerce and industry get you money so you can buy more valuable properties. The game takes place through different ages from the third and fourth rounds in which your city is damaged in WW I and WW II all the way through to modern shopping complexes and skyscrapers.
I thoroughly recommend the tight, constrained game play: brilliant game design!
Absolutely one of the hidden gems in modern game design.
I think the universe is pure geometry – basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time.
