Build your own town in Design Town! In this deck-building game, you have no hand at all; instead, you play cards directly from the top of your deck. Winning the game requires delicate strategies...and some luck as well!!
A turn consists of two phases: card playing and building.
• Players play cards directly from the top of their deck and may choose to continue unless they have three cry-face icons in play, which ends their turn immediately. When they choose to stop, they move to the building phase.
• During the building phase, a player can use the coins gained from their previously played cards to buy a new card or to upgrade a card in their personal discard pile. To upgrade a card, pay the cost and flip it over; upgraded cards remain in the discard pile.
Since all cards in this game are double-sided, be careful not to flip them over accidentally when placing cards into your discard pile or when shuffling your deck. Whenever a player gains eight or more VP during a single card playing phase, that player wins immediately!
This edition of Design Town consists of the original Design Town from Homosapiens Lab as well as the Design Town: Reuse expansion that adds two more double-sided cards to the game.
