Glenn’s Review

Quadropolis is a quick playing family game for 2 – 4 players made by Days of Wonder. Your job is to build a booming metropolis. First, you need to lay out a 5×5 grid by picking out random tiles. You score points by building up residential buildings, shops, public services, parks, harbors, and factories. Parks gain more points if they are close to residential areas, and factories score more if they are close to shops and harbors. Suggested retial is around $50.
