Wishlists

In Glasgow, players travel the city (in an abstract manner) to collect resources, take special actions, and most important of all construct buildings. Build a factory, and you'll receive more goods from it when other buildings are constructed in the right areas in relation to it; build a train station, and you may or may not score from it depending on what else you build; build a monument, and you'll merely collect a lot of points — and in the end, points are what matters.

In slightly more detail, to set up the game, lay out a ring of town figures at random, with two of them being removed from play each game. Whoever is farther behind in the circle around town takes the next turn, advancing to whichever town figure they want to visit. Most of them give you resources — brick, steel, or money — and you have a limit on how many resources of each type you can hold. Some figures have two random building plans at them, and if you visit one with the right resources, you can pay them, then build something. If you pay extra, you can then build something else, too!

The first building is placed anywhere in the midst of play, then each subsequent building is placed adjacent to something already built, with the buildings eventually filling in a 4x4 grid of the players' own creation. As soon as the sixteenth building is erected, the game ends and players score points for what they built. Who has contributed more to the current state of Glasgow?

    En tant que résident écossais, je ne pouvais pas passer a côté de ce jeu inspiré par la construction de la ville moderne de Glasgow!

    Chaque joueur longe la Clyde, disposée en cercle, et interagit avec des dockers, qui permettent de récupérer des matériaux de construction (ou meme un tonneau de whisky), ou avec des architectes qui permettent de construire la ville a coup de fabriques, de parcs, de "tenements" ou immeubles d'habitation. Le but étant d'accumuler les points de victoire grace a la pose de bâtiments.

    La spécificité du jeu est que les joueurs peuvent aller occuper la tuile docker/architecte de leur choix, mais si ils dépassent l'autre joueur, ils devront attendre de se faire dépasser à leur tour avant de pouvoir rejouer (c'est le même système que dans patchwork).

    Le jeu est très court (20 minutes), nerveux et interactif et les différents bonus de pose de tuile créent un puzzle spatial très intéressant. Bref, une petite perle du jeu à 2 à déguster avec un single malt!
