Suburbia (Video Review)

21 October 2012 2 Comments

Plan, build, and develop a small town into a major metropolis. Use hex-shaped building tiles to add residential, commercial, civic, and industrial areas, as well as special points of interest that provide benefits and take advantage of the resources of nearby towns. Your goal is to have your borough thrive and end up with a greater population than any of your opponents.

Suburbia is a tile-laying game in which each player tries to build up an economic engine and infrastructure that will be initially self-sufficient, and eventually become both profitable and encourage population growth. As your town grows, you’ll modify both your income and your reputation. As your income increases, you’ll have more cash on hand to purchase better and more valuable buildings, such as an international airport or a high rise office building. As your reputation increases, you’ll gain more and more population (and the winner at the end of the game is the player with the largest population).

During each game, players compete for several unique goals that offer an additional population boost – and the buildings available in each game vary, so you’ll never play the same game twice!

    Joel, you’ve got a nice Beethoven hair thing going on there in the first segment. Kind of the mad genius look. I’m diggin it!

    Seriously, nice review again. I like the way the buildings and developments interact and effect each other. it reminds me a little of Urban Sprawl in that way, but this looks like there is more player control than there is in US. Thanks again for a great review, and thanks for finding more ways for me to spend my money………jerk……… ;-)
