Plan, build, and develop a small town into a major metropolis. Use hex-shaped building tiles to add residential, commercial, civic, and industrial areas, as well as special points of interest that provide benefits and take advantage of the resources of nearby towns. Your goal is to have your borough thrive and end up with a greater population than any of your opponents.
Suburbia is a tile-laying game in which each player tries to build up an economic engine and infrastructure that will be initially self-sufficient, and eventually become both profitable and encourage population growth. As your town grows, you'll modify both your income and your reputation. As your income increases, you'll have more cash on hand to purchase better and more valuable buildings, such as an international airport or a high rise office building. As your reputation increases, you'll gain more and more population (and the winner at the end of the game is the player with the largest population).
During each game, players compete for several unique goals that offer an additional population boost – and the buildings available in each game vary, so you'll never play the same game twice!
The rules of Suburbia are not particularly complex, but I still don't want to refer to multiple rulebooks and mentally differentiate them to figure out the setup, bot rules, etc. when I play it, and moreover when I teach it. This summary integrates the expansions' rules and setup into the base game's rules and setup. The setup and rules are on page 1, page 2 contains just the solitaire rules, legend, and revision history.

All I ask is credit (see licensing on this page) for the source work. It takes more time and effort than you think to comb, collate, and integrate all the rules.
