Although Rome wasn’t built in a day, now it can be. Bring your vision of the perfect city to life as you compete for a chance to host the next World Expo. With careful strategizing and planning from the Victorian to the modern era, players are challenged to build a capital city unlike any other that can withstand the test of time. With over 100 unique buildings including coal plants, train stations, museums, research labs, and more, no two cities will turn out the same.
Note: This drop is limited to 50 units and is available to members within the United States only. For more information on The Capitals, please check out the Board Game Geek page.
Divided into 12 rounds with up to 6 phases each, every player starts with a hotel, a city hall, and a power plant. To expand, players must be aware of their city’s population, employment, money supply, and energy—much like the challenges a real mayor or city planner might face. By focusing on tourism, players can also steal workers from opponents, which adds another competitive element to gameplay. After the final round, the winner is determined by the total amount of victory points accumulated based on all of these factors and the appeal of their city’s overall culture.
