Copenhagen is the brand-new polyomino board game from Queen Games. The game has been designed by Daniel Skjold Pedersen and Asger Harding Grenerud.
In the game players work to design new façades for the colourful gabled houses along the famous "Nyhavn". By using the cards on displays, players receive the corresponding façade polyomino tiles, with which they beautify their houses. Overbuilding certain spaces and floors gives them additional skills for the rest of the game. Floors that consist of a pure window front are particularly rewarding and bring the players many points.
The tiles come in various shapes and sizes, and to obtain them you will play cards in a fashion that is recognisable to anyone who has played Ticket to Ride. On your turn you may take two cards from the display or play a set of cards of the same colour to claim a tile. The length of the tile depends on the number of cards played and discounts can be had for building the same colour tiles adjacent to each other.
The winner of Copenhagen is the player who gets to 12 points first. Power tiles are varied and all are useful.
