WATCH: From the publishers of Ticket to Ride and Five Tribes, comes Quadropolis!

From a cross-country adventure across the USA, to the Land of 1001 Nights, Days of Wonder takes us to a different kind of setting in 2016 – the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis!
In Quadropolis, players are mayors of neighboring cities who are competing to build the greatest city! To do this, players enlist architects who will help them procure buildings, before their opponents do so.

The games comes with 20 Architect numbered 1 to 4

Quadropolis is divided into several grid-like boards which is the heart and soul of the game. Players will send architects to a communal 5×5 board to procure the building they need. The number indicated on the architect you send is important. It determines the exact position in the communal build site from where you’ll be getting a building AND also determines on which part of your own city you’ll be able to build.

If that sounded a bit tough to wrap your head around, don’t worry it took me a while to get it too. But once you understand it, the system is actually pretty intuitive. It seems Quadropolis continues the trend of meaty family games coming from Days of Wonder, which started with Five Tribes.

In the above example, the Green player gets the Public Service, which is 2 spaces down the row where he placed the architect. During the same turn, he then places the Public Service in either Row 2 or Column 2 of his city.

 

Depending on the kind of buildings you’re able to get, and how you’ve placed them in your city, points will be scored at the end of 4 rounds.

Different buildings will score in different way. Make sure you maximize the points you can get from each building!

 

And if that’s not enough! Quadropolis will be shipping with two game modes: Classic and Expert! This is for players who have become familiar with the game and want an extra challenge!

The rules for both Classic and Expert are now up on the Days of Wonder website!

Board game connoisseur. Has a 213 board game collection. Yes I could have used all that money to buy myself burritos. But burritos don't let me experience the thrill of victory, the sting of defeat, and give me an excuse to berate my friends as I crush their armies with cold farming efficiency. Think about that the next time you want to buy a burrito.
