Excellent game, as usual from Alban VIARD. A near-classic.
It's all the more interesting as to build our city with respect to the type of building. Each game is different, the rules are clear and well-explained (from the game author), I want to play it again !

Super exclusive (but unsupported) first edition

After 10 or so plays (solo) this is easily becoming my favorite solo game. It is a living and breathing puzzle/game that is different every time I play it. Even so, the more I play the better I get. Upon my first play I was disappointed because I didn't feel like there was much for me to do to better my score - the random draws of the cubes seemed too much to overcome. But with further plays I see the subtle strategies required to achieve higher scores, and the game is beginning to reveal a deeper nature than I initially thought. I'm anxious to try a multi-player game since the cube draft looks to be devilishly clever. Even if I never get to play it with others this purchase was well worth the money spent just as a solo game.

Excellent gem of a game. The 3d spatial mechanics in this game are genius, and there is are so many excellent balances in the game. The "I divide and you pick" element is great, as is the tension between building your shops for income, or your apartments for later victory.

Just a stellar game, very happy to have played this!

As I approached the final scoring of my first game, I was thinking, "Um, the scoring really only goes up to 60+ for solitaire? I have over a hundred. Eh, well, still a pleasant  7 ." Once I remembered that the points were only about a fifth of that, a smile crept across my face, for I knew I had much to learn and discover in this game.  8

After over 10 games it is still fun and there are lot of things to discover and optimize. You can play 4 two player games in round about an hour and this makes it for me and my wife to one of the favourite little games which can be easily played during the week. I'm keen to try the next titles of the triology.

One play shows you what is possible, but it will take several plays to understand how to play well.

It took me 2 plays to really wrap my head around how to utilise the 3D aspects of Town Centre, but I'm glad I took the time and effort to do so. There's a great game here that really deserves a wider audience.

The new drafting (compared to Card City) has drawn some negative comparisons from people who've played both, but I actually really like this; here you're able to choose what you won't get, rather than what you will perhaps, though offices still seem rather essential and I don't think I've yet seen someone pass up the opportunity to get one. The game plays out very oddly when the offices all get stuck at the bottom of the bag...

I love competitive puzzle games with a solitaire option. This looks like a good, thinky one with lots to consider.

Actually very easy to play, but the spatial thinking to set up combos and such are brain burning

Fun, devilishly difficult little brainburning filler. Unfortunately it needs a comparatively lengthy rules explanation and most people still have trouble grokking it on their first play, which drags out the playtime.

The combination of turn order and cube draw seems problematic: the first player in a round has a strong advantage, particularly in the final round when they can guarantee picking up an office if one is available.

As a result I think I prefer the solitaire game, which is less interesting but much faster. (I am also awful at it.)

Second edition, number 74/100
