2212: Ginkgo Biloba, the oldest and strongest tree in the world, has become the symbol of a new method for building cities in symbiosis with nature. Humans have exhausted the resources that the Earth offered them, and humanity must now develop cities that maintain a delicate balance between resource production and consumption. Habitable space is scarce, however, and mankind must now face the challenge of building ever upwards. To develop this new type of city, you will gather a team of experts around you, and try to become the best urban planner for Ginkgopolis.

In Ginkgopolis, the city tiles come in three colors: yellow, which provides victory points; red, which provides resources; and blue, which provides new city tiles. Some tiles start in play, and they're surrounded by letter markers that show where new tiles can be placed.

On a turn, each player chooses a card from his hand simultaneously. Players reveal these cards, adding new tiles to the border of the city in the appropriate location or placing tiles on top of existing tiles. Each card in your hand that you don't play is passed on to your left-hand neighbor, so keep in mind how your play might set up theirs!

When you add a new tile to the city, you take a "power" card of the same color, and these cards provide you additional abilities during the game, allowing you to scale up your building and point-scoring efforts.

    4/5
    Des combos de cartes pour un jeu relativement abstrait mais ô combien stratégique. Même s'il est jouable de 1 à 5 joueurs, je trouve qu'il prend toute sa saveur à 2 voire 3 joueurs, les parties étant très tendues et tactiques. Au delà de 3 joueurs, les changements opérées sur le plateau rendent la mise en place de stratégie plus compliquées et donc les parties plus chaotiques.
    Un chef d'oeuvre à 2 joueurs, vraiment.
    Coup de coeur 2012.

    Ginkgopolis est un jeu vraiment original et riche, dominé par une impeccable mécanique, mais qui demande quelques parties pour être apprivoisée. Ne vous découragez pas car il en vaut vraiment la peine.

    Tres bien à 2 où en plus de batir vous essayer de bloquer votre adversaire. A 4 c'est un peu moins lisible mais interessant.

    Très bon jeu ! Beaucoup de possibilité et une belle rivalité pour la conquête des espaces de la ville. Par contre le thème est vite oublié je trouve.

    Encore un bon Pearl Game. Mécanique simple mais pas simpliste, efficace. Le jeu tourne aussi bien à 2 qu'à 4, et il plaît à madame ( ce qui est rare) comme aux hardcore gamers. Joli matos et illustrations, règles claires. Un peu dans l'esprit du très bon Deus du même éditeur. Durée: 45min/1h30

    Très bon jeu. Les règles sont assez longues à comprendre mais une fois la logique du jeu en tête, tout devient clair et on passe un excellent moment. Vivement la prochaine partie !
