Description Edit | History

This is a negotiation game in the truest sense of the word. In it, players acquire ownership of sections of city blocks then place tiles, representing businesses, onto the block-sections. At the end of each turn, each tile you've laid gives you some sort of payout, but completed businesses (formed of three to six connected tiles of the same type) pay quite a bit better. All these resources are dealt to the players randomly, however, so players must trade to get matching businesses and adjacent locations.

This game is #2 in the Alea big box series.

11 PlayerAid - Simplified and Deflated
Small update. Tweaked the payout chart to include box icons so it was more obviously different than the round chart. Nothing wrong with the original, just liked this one better.

8 Chinatown income chart
This is a chart you can use with the game to track your total income. HOW TO USE: Place on the table and when you open a business, place a marker on the income for that business. (example: open a 2-tile photo, place a circle on the 2 and photo grid= 20k). This chart makes it easy to use when figuring out how much income you earned at the end of that round.
