Pipville

Pipville

30-90 minutes
2-4 players

Pipville is a smaller suburb of Megopolis and life is pretty swell. Except for, you know, all the jobs, shopping, tourism money, and glory going to the bigger city. Thus Mayor Randal Chansey began his project to help put Pipville on the map. Players take the role of a City Planner competing to have the best city plan by the end of the game.

Pipville offers a new twist on familiar gameplay as building cards are laid out in front of the players and they have up to 3 rolls to try and match the requirements on the cards. If successful, they get to add the building to their city and maybe even leave behind a colored dice worth bonus points at the end. Players can also steal dice from other players cities for their own. With adjustable game length, Pipville serves as both filler and lengthier experience.
