Quadropolis is an abstracted city-building game with rules not entirely based on tile placement. Of course, players score points based on where they place each tile in their cities, but they must also balance power and citizens to excel. In addition, the tile selection process forces kids to find solutions for acquiring the tiles they want and where they want to place them. This push and pull mechanism exercises your brain in an oddly satisfying way.

Game Overview

In Quadropolis™ you enact the role of the Mayor of a modern city. You will need to define a global strategy to build your city according to your Inhabitants’ needs and outmatch your opponents, sending your Architects to have various buildings erected in your city. Each building allows you to score victory points. There are various types of buildings with different scoring patterns; many of them may be combined for better effect. Will you be able to meet the challenge and become the most prestigious Mayor in history?
