Set in the Italian countryside, this game features various city-states vying for population. Each player is given two cities to start with, and is charged with expanding the different aspects of the cities to attract larger populations.
Players build farms to feed their people, quarries to finance their expansions, marketplaces to allow growth in their cities, and bathhouses to keep their people clean and healthy. Additionally, structures can be built that give the city influence in one of three categories. Superiority in one of these categories will cause population to shift from other nearby cities when the Voice of the People is decided at the end of each turn.
At the end of six turns, the player with the most victory points, which are determined from well-rounded cities, well-fed populations, and overall size of population, will be the winner.
Note: The correct pronunciation is like "Cheetah", but with the accent on the last syllable: "La Chee-TAH".
Reglamento de La Città en español. He mantenido el índice con las páginas del manual original para las figuras y he marcado los números de página en la traducción para quien utilice el pdf de Rio Grande, que viene preparado por pliegos para impresión y las páginas no son correlativas.

English language MS Word file for La Citta player cards and action cards. To use, print on either a full page label or a 4-stickers to one page label, then cut to fit. Designed in A4 format.
I didn't add in text for every single card because it is often very obvious what the card does (e.g. buy a building for 3 gold), or the English names are too similar to warrant a paste-up (e.g. Universitat), or irrelevant to game play (e.g. is it Black/Blue/White?).
The "x2" labels are to be applied to the rich harvest cards to the right of the food icon. The file is MS Word so you could also re-word it if you feel the need.
