In Cities you are the architect of a city of the world.

You try to build a city that is most attractive for tourists.

You position attractions close together and you build parks as big as possible and place terraces close to the water. You guide tourists to their favourite spots, because only through them can you earn your points.

The Dilemma

However… you never know exactly which tile will be drawn next. Will you wait another round for the perfect tile? Or will you adjust your planning? Cities is the game where YOU decide. You place every tile. You place every tourist. To win you need a plan. And change it again. And maybe again.
