Description Edit | History

In City of Iron, 2-4 players compete to build up a small nation in a world of machines, magic, and money. Become the leader of one of four rival nations: the industrious humans, the toad engineers, the scholarly Cresarians, or the clever hogmen. Produce goods like machine parts and bottled demons to gain wealth, or research steam-age technology and recruit mercenaries to control the continent. If you want to establish new cities, you’ll build schooners or airships to reach faraway lands and flying islands. Your cities have limited capacity, so you’ll have to decide what to keep and what to demolish when building advanced structures. The future of a nation is in your hands. Build unbreakable foundations for an empire or disappear into the dusty pages of history.

  • Build a civilization in a Steampunk setting
  • Customize two decks of cards in a unique twist on deck-building
  • Choose your path- build a powerful economy or conquer everything in sight
  • Includes hundreds of lavishly-illustrated cards, an extra-large board, land boards, coin tokens, and more

7 Tuckboxes for City of Iron
This zip file contains 9 tuck boxes for City of Iron, in PDF format. It includes: * 4 separate boxes to contain each race's citizen and military cards (including racial special cards), plus a turn order card. * 3 separate boxes to contain the A, B, and C buildings, plus a scoring card. * A box for town cards (15 base towns plus 7 expansion towns) * A box for land tiles (4 starting tiles plus 8 explorable tiles) The card boxes are sized for sleeved cards. I measured them with Fantasy Flight purple sleeves (to fit the 59mm x 92mm Standard European size), but they may work for other sleeve brands as well. Of course, they will fit unsleeved cards too, but with lots of extra room. When printing, make sure that you print at "actual size" rather than "fit" or "scale". To view or print...
