I’ve always like using Army Painter Speedpaint. The metallics set just gave me options to paint armour and weapons as they were designed.
Played it a few times since purchasing. Easy to understand and quick to pick up.
It contains very interesting cards.
Introduce cards that allow you to salvage from the trash pile, force opponents to trash cards and add new types of playable victory cards worth currency and actions (my favourite about this expansion) - instead of having a bunch of useless victory cards delaying your game.
Very nice set if you like some action and unexpected turns!
Just one big downside: It doesn't include base cards (currencies, curses, Estates, Provinces, Duchies and gardens).
Having a new set of cards is great to break the repetitiveness of the base set
As diehard fans of the original My City game, we were thrilled to try out this new version, and the game did not disappoint! The game feels enough like the same game to be familiar and fun when compared to the original, but also fresh and new enough to be exciting to see where this version will take you!
I think the fact that you can have repeat pieces, and that you don't know what pieces you will need to place because they are random, speeds up the game as you can't plan the whole map, which is a big plus in my mind.
Long story short, this is excellent! I think everyone would enjoy this game, whether you've played the original, or you are trying My City for the first time.
Give it a go, you won't be disappointed, especially given the price of the game. It is a steal of a deal for the hours of fun you will have playing!
