Online play

You can play Cities online

At the website of Boiteajeux Cities can be played 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! :)

 

FAQ

What is the maximum score?

I have no idea! With level 3 it is at least 96 points (see Boiteajeux). But maybe you can tell me…? :)

 

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.
