Suburbia, from Bezier Games, has had a massive facelift in this collectors edition that finally looks as good as it plays. This massive box not only includes the base game but the existing expansions, promo and more. Plastic ‘Game Trayz’ inserts are used to store the game and make set up as easy as possible.
The gameplay itself revolves around balancing your income with a growing population. You do this by buying hex shaped buildings and adding them to your growing metropolis. Buildings come in various flavours, such as residential, industrial and so on. You will not only need to place these in intelligent ways but pay attention to their special effects and modifiers to your population and income. Certain types of buildings benefit from being near or far away from other types of buildings and some will activate buildings in other people’s cities!
There is loads of content here. The great thing is that it’s arranged into expansions in the Game Trayz storage. That means that if you are new to Suburbia you can very easily access the base game content and add expansions in when you want/ You have to punch the tokens and sort them out the first time you open the box of course, but it’s a great system that works well. These Game Trayz are also an integral part of set up, holding components in place and order during the game play.
Speaking of components they are excellent throughout. From thick cardboard to wooden components and gorgeous two layered player boards that hold your tracking cubes securely in place. If you are new to Suburbia or love the game this is hands down the best way to own it. It’s a big box of board game brilliance.
