Sprawlopolis, Circle the Wagons & Chicago 1875: City of the Big Shoulders

Later this year, we will release two pocket-sized card games on the European game market, previously published by Button Shy. These card games will be small in size (only 18 cards and a small notepad) and price, but large in gameplay and fun! We will also release a heavy strategy game for fans. Read on to discover more about these games!

Sprawlopolis is a cooperative card-drafting and city-building game for 1 to 4 players in which you build a new city from the ground up. The game uses only 18 cards, but makes use of a variable scoring system. This is since 3 of the 18 cards are randomly selected at game start, and their backs determine specific scoring for that game. No game will ever be the same!

Goal of each game is to build a city with areas as large as possible, without building too many separate roads. Variable scoring adds 3 more mechanics to score points. The game is played in only 15 to 20 minutes, which makes it a great filler :D. For more information, visit the Sprawlopolis BoardGameGeek page.

Circle the Wagons is a competitive card-drafting and territory-building game for 2 players in which you compete for the best cards. This game uses only 18 cards as well and, identical to Sprawlopolis, 3 of the 18 cards are randomly selected at game start to determine scoring for that game. You’ll never build the same town twice!

Goal of each game is to pick cards that support your territory best, without leaving other good cards for your opponent. Territories always score based on their size, but variable scoring adds 3 more ways to score (or lose!) points. For more information, visit the Circle the Wagons BoardGameGeek page.

Our third Masterprint title for 2019 (#26) will be Chicago 1875: City of the Big Shoulders. We will print a Masterprint edition for distribution throughout Europe and it will include all Kickstarter Stretch Goals, but not the expansion. We will make the expansion available in limited quantities seperately.

In Chicago 1875: City of the Big Shoulders you will take on the role of an investor and entrepreneur. You will start companies, trade in shares, hire employees, equip factories, produce goods and sell them to be delivered to homes across the midwest. The goal is get as rich as you can, as fast as you can and cement your legacy as Chicago´s greatest resident.

The game accomodates 2 to 4 players and takes 2 to 3 hours to play. This is a heavy strategy game for fans! For more information, visit the City of the Big Shoulders BoardGameGeek page.
