Description

In the Glasgow board game, players travel the city (in an abstract manner) to collect resources, take special actions, and most important of all construct buildings. Build a factory, and you’ll receive more goods from it when other buildings are constructed in the right areas in relation to it; build a train station, and you may or may not score from it depending on what else you build; build a monument, and you’ll merely collect a lot of points — and in the end, points are what matters.

In slightly more detail, to set up the game, lay out a ring of town figures at random, with two of them being removed from play each game. Whoever is farther behind in the circle around town takes the next turn, advancing to whichever town figure they want to visit. Most of them give you resources — brick, steel, or money — and you have a limit on how many resources of each type you can hold. Some figures have two random building plans at them, and if you visit one with the right resources, you can pay them, then build something. If you pay extra, you can then build something else, too!

The first building is placed anywhere in the midst of play, then each subsequent building is placed adjacent to something already built, with the buildings eventually filling in a 4×4 grid of the players’ own creation. As soon as the sixteenth building is erected, the game ends and players score points for what they built. Who has contributed more to the current state of Glasgow?

    Good solid 2 player resource management game where players use the mechanism of “last on the track takes an action” to get goods or build. The game description is a good overview (rules state a 5×4 or 4×5 grid). So how does it play? On the whole fairly sweet, resources are tight but not impossible, random set up gives plenty of variety as does the building lines , there are several ways to get victory points which all seem excellently balanced. If you are looking for a nice 2 player game that plays in 30 minutes then look no further.
