Thames & Kosmos Announces The Release Of My City
Thames & Kosmos has announced that the highly-anticipated tabletop game, My City, is available to pre-order now through Barnes & Noble and will be launching in stores next month. Developed by award-winning game designer Reiner Knizia, My City was named one of three nominees for this year’s prestigious Spiel des Jahres Award (German for “Game of the Year”)—an honor granted to games that represent the best of the best in family-style board games. It’s illustrated by world-famous board game illustrator Michael Menzel of Legends of Andor fame.
The game consists of 24 different games, or episodes, beginning with the development of a city in its early preindustrial stages and progressing through industrialization. Each player has their own game board, which they permanently modify during each episode through the addition of stickers. As such, My City is a legacy game, but its distinction within this category of board games is in the family-oriented rules, play time, and built-in system of handicaps and advantages which provide a balance between players of different skill levels.
Despite being a legacy game, it does offer a secondary repeatable play experience thanks to double-sided game boards.
My City is available to preorder now and will be available for purchase in-store at Barnes & Noble locations nationwide starting July 31, 2020, with distribution in specialty stores slated for October 2020. The suggested retail price is $34.95.
