An expansion for Alban Viard’s Town Center.
In Town Center, players build a city – in particular, the town center. They add cubes on their personal board and try to arrange them as best as possible in order to score the most victory points. Each cube represents a different type of module. Flats, shops, offices, generators, lifts, car parks, town hall can be built and stacked during the course of the game. Each module generates influence on adjacent land and on cubes directly below or above.
The Town Center: London / Hong Kong expansion is comprised of 4 double-sided player boards, with the all-new London expansion map on one side, and the also all-new Hong Kong expansion map on the other. There’s also an A5-sized rulesheet/cover that explains the special rules of each map.
Both maps are something new and challenging (in fact, very challenging), as players will have to manage their budget (London), and their building plans (Hong Kong) very, very carefully.
Expertly designed by Alban Viard and beautifully illustrated by Todd Sanders, these highly thematic maps were developed to showcase just how deep this game can be, while taking advantage of each city’s unique characteristics. The expansion comes with an A5 rulesheet/cover.
In London, real estate is expensive. Real expensive. So expensive, that it is the kind of place that has a stretch of street called “Billionaires’ Row”.
So, in the London map, the closer you get to the center (or, the “centre” as the natives like to call it), the more expensive it is. This map is not for those who don’t pay attention to their Commercial units.
In Hong Kong, another patch of land filled with steel, concrete and people, you have a very challenging, very small and congested map, just like the real thing.
In Hong Kong, you have to work hard to plan ahead, and to make sure that you can build in develop in the only direction that matters: up.
