Hi,

Just few words about the third edition since I get many messages from geeks who were not lucky enought to get one of the first editions...

We are in touch with Ludofact to make a completly professionnal edition !!
The box will be bigger 25x25cm, there will be large wooden cubes 16mm ( same size of the plastic bricks of the second edition, even bigger in height)

The personal boards will be bigger as well with larger roads and punched squares to fit the cubes. The 4 boards will be double sided printed with two different boards.

We will add transparent stickers in the box. Players may choose to stick them on the cubes or not.

We will add stickers for the roofs of the cubes ( see modified rules)

The box, the personal boards and the cover will be upgraded again by Sampo

The rules will be completed and slighted modified:
- we will split the rules into basic and advanced version. The basic game will be the same than the last edition.
- the advanced rules will add rules for the roofs of the wooden cubes (depending if we see or not the roof, players will get bonuses or negative effects...)
- the acquisition phase will be equilibrate like in Tikal and Traümfabrik The first player will make the pile, and the second player will start an auction. The winning playe will choose the pile and give the money to the other player....

Finally, we will add the first expansion in the basic game.
To thank every players of the first edition, I will make by my hands the same expansion in 10mm cubes for the customers of the first efition, and in lego for the customers of the second edition. So they won't need to buy agzin this third edition, but they COULD

With this third edition, We are trying to take in consideration all the feedbacks of the player to improve again the game.

To realize this project, we will need a large support of fans of the trilogy and I will post news again when we will be ready for the crowdfunding project (may be KS and Ulule)
The backers system is not established yet, but I am tempting to offer a discount for the backers who will order both Town Center and the ladt game of the trilogy Small city ( or all the three gamew with Card city), we will see what is the most effective to reach the goal....

There is still few problems to solve such like the shipping costs and the stickers... But we are in the good way

The deadline to start the campaign is the very beginning of the next year.

Hi Alban,

very good news.

How about a very special discount for the geeks who already own both the first AND the second edition, Card City and are keen to own Small City?

Tell me, have you found the Yellow Sign?

That is great news, indeed.

Btw, maybe you could think about including a rulebook with French, German and English rules? Would eliminate most problems, I'd reckon. Of course, you know where to reach me...

I hope we will be able to make around 10/20 deluxe copies of the game with very large cubes 30mm, personal boards in Wood and a beautifull box with Town Center in gold letter.

Thanks for your support !

About the normal version :
The graphics are mostly done, or enought done ...
We are writing the project for the crowdfunding campaign.
No changes for the box size 25x25x4cm, player boards of 20cm,124 wooden cubes of 16mm plus cubes to track the money
A discount of 20% for the backers compared to the MSRP.

About the deluxe edition :
Graphics printed on wooden boards. The size should be 28cm with spots of 3cm for the wooden cubes !!!
I found awesome pirate's chests 40cmx30cmx16cm. All the components should fit inside !
No copies available later, too difficult to produce.


The best news is probably that we will add an official link to play the game in solo with the official graphics, so newbies may discover the game during the campaign

(Completely different from the non official interface posted on BGG, which I do not autorized and support !!!)

Finally, stickers and expansions will also be available as I announced in November ( citizens, mountains, and new cities)

The campaign will be placed on Ulule and I also hope on Kickstarter.
The total would be around 15000€, the big wooden cubes are very expensive, even in huge quantities , so if you know the game and like it, talk to your friends and support us as soon as the project will start
(Delayed to end of February to finish the interface and the video)

You can also follow me with Twitter @AlbanViard

I post news again soon!

Hi Alban,

great news! Now I must only find a way to explain my wife why I must own three (four) different editions of the same game...

Yes the deluxe edition will be awesome for collectible.
The box is giant and incredible.
I am looking for a nice newspaper to print the rules directly on them, something like an economical newspaper to have a nice background or an old plan of NewYork...

The price of the normal edition should be around 28/30E for the backers, for the deluxe...., do not expect something cheap

I'm not really a collector, more of a player.

So you can count me in for a "normal version", as long as there are wooden cubes included, not the plastic/Lego ones.
