City-building games require players to create a representation of a collection of buildings. Typically this means a city, though games like Chinatown have shown that this definition is broad. Buildings may be shared amongst players to create a single tableau or may be individual, with each player creating their own optimized city. Similar to economic games, the focus is on creating a synergistic arrangement which allows a player to benefit from multiple bonuses or payouts. While the use of tiles to represent buildings is quite common (for example, Suburbia), other games have used cards (Machi Koro).
In this unboxing Boardgame Brody shows off the awesome prototype of Lions of Lydia by Bellwether Games.
