Product Description

Bidding and expansion game played over 18 turns. The scene is a city in the 1920's. Building is booming and everybody is competing for the most lucrative quarters of town. The players try to lay their hands onto the most lucrative boroughs by winning the bids and distributing the colored markers. At the beginning of play there are four markers of at least two different colors in each of the auction spots. Each round of the game consists of two parts: a) The agent is moved to a auction spot and b) the markers in this spot are auctioned. The winner of the auction distributes the markers onto the different city boroughs. If the 7th marker is put into a borough, the borough goes to the player with the plurality of markers in it, and is marked "sold" accordingly. After 18 rounds, any boroughs not yet sold are allocated according to marker majorities and then the boroughs are scored. The total value minus any credits taken out by a player is the player's fortune. The player with the biggest fortune and owning a minimum of two boroughs wins the game.
