Aspiring urban planners and wannabe government officials, this is the game for you! Note: actual government officials and urban planners will also like this game. In Tiny Towns, you are the mayor of a tiny town in the forest in which the small creatures of the woods have created a civilization hidden safely away from predators. The goal is simple: build the most prosperous town with limited resources!
In Tiny Towns, your town is represented by a 4x4 grid on which you place resource cubes in specific layouts to construct buildings. Each building scores victory points in a unique way. When no player can place any more resources or construct any buildings, the game ends. Plan well, as you lose a victory point for any squares without a building.
