Product Description

In Manhattan, you compete to build the biggest and best buildings in six areas of Manhattan. Players take turns constructing new buildings or adding levels to existing buildings. Your cards influence where you must build, but you can choose to build in any of six areas. You can also steal control of other players' buildings by playing your pieces on top of their buildings, taking away their hard-earned points.

So the question is, do players prefer to build their own buildings, or is it easier to take them over from their opponents? Each player must decide for themselves--but who is going to quietly stand by and watch while someone else takes over that skyscraper that you just spent so much time and effort building?

Once each player has built six pieces, the round is over and all players score points based on who has the city's tallest building, who has the most buildings in each area, and how many buildings each player controls. After four rounds of building and scoring, the player with the most points wins.
