The city was once a small and sleepy town, but the affordable properties have attracted startup companies, artists and families. Celebrities and influencers are moving in, and after some recent archeological findings, the tourist industry is now booming. Street by street, the city is transforming into a centre of commerce and culture.
Players are investors building attractive new streets in the growing city, investing in new businesses and homes. Some streets will become havens for hipsters, others will be dominated by tourists or families with children. Others still will become shopping areas. Where will your Microbrewery get the most profit? What is the best spot for a Toy Store? What kind of environments are the other investors creating, and can you exploit their work for your own personal gain?
As each street is completed, the people on it move to new buildings that interest them - hopefully one of your buildings in an up-and-coming street. Can you compete with the hype of your competitors and grow your following over time? To earn the most money and win the game you will need to manage your limited investment funds cleverly, planning ahead while keeping your mind open to fresh opportunities.
Streets is a tile-laying game where players construct a city together. Every building has a simple valuation formula which earns money for the owner when the street is scored. Valuations are affected by the other buildings in the street, so smart placement is critical to maximize profit. On top of this, the city is populated by families, hipsters, shoppers and tourists, each with their own preferred building type. Cleverly located properties can benefit from the growing crowds of people who will further increase the value of the buildings they visit.
Optional expansion modules introduce powerful asymmetric player abilities, and extra layers of strategy & tough decisions.
