Mad City is a real-time competitive tile-laying game in which players compete to build the most lucrative city. In rounds that last exactly one minute, players must lay their hand of nine tiles out in a 3x3 grid in order to build their city districts in the most beneficial way. Players must also be fast if they hope to beat their opponents for the right to score bonuses for their ponds and parks and for their zoning majorities. Using a unique scoring system, Mad City allows players to focus or diversify in their building styles. With quick and addictive game play, families and gamers alike will be eager to return to Mad City!
Mad City includes a solo variant for players stranded on deserted islands, allowing you to test your building prowess against The Grid!
