On every turn in Tiny Towns, players add resources to their 4x4 grid. When placed in specific layouts, players can convert resources into buildings for their city. Each building scores differently, and with multiple versions of each building included, the replay value of this game is off the charts! Tiny towns is an excellent game for teaching kids how to manage time and resources efficiently. Throw in a masterclass in spatial perception, and you've got yourself a Game Schooler Recommended Game.
Game Overview

You are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest in which the smaller creatures of the woods have created a civilization hidden away from predators. This new land is small and the resources are scarce, so you take what you can get and never say no to building materials. Cleverly plan and construct a thriving town, and don't let it fill up with wasted resources! Whoever builds the most prosperous tiny town wins!

In Tiny Towns, your town is represented by a 4x4 grid on which you will place resource cubes in specific layouts to construct buildings. Each building scores victory points (VPs) in a unique way. When no player can place any more resources or construct any buildings, the game ends, and any squares without a building are worth -1 VP. The player with the most VP wins!
