You can play Cities online
You can play all three levels. Solo or with other players.
So if you have no one around you willing to play, don’t despare! 🙂
What is the maximum score?
Can Cities be played by colour blind people?
Yes, most colour blind people will be able to play Cities. The tiles have distinctive colours: yellow, green, light blue and red/orange. If you are having a problem distinguishing between red and green the illustrations on the tiles will help you.
What buildings are on the tiles?
I have made a PDF with all buildings that you can find on the tiles of Cities.
