Plan, build, and develop a small town into a major metropolis. Use hex-shaped building tiles to add residential, commercial, civic, and industrial areas, as well as special points of interest that provide benefits and take advantage of the resources of nearby towns. Your goal is to have your borough thrive and end up with a greater population than any of your opponents.
Suburbia is a tile-laying game in which each player tries to build up an economic engine and infrastructure that will be initially self-sufficient, and eventually become both profitable and encourage population growth. As your town grows, you'll modify both your income and your reputation. As your income increases, you'll have more cash on hand to purchase better and more valuable buildings, such as an international airport or a high rise office building. As your reputation increases, you'll gain more and more population (and the winner at the end of the game is the player with the largest population).
During each game, players compete for several unique goals that offer an additional population boost – and the buildings available in each game vary, so you'll never play the same game twice!

|Husband and I played this game at a gaming convention and it was a lot of fun! We are adding it to our gaming wish list!
|I'm new to games and have played this game once but can't wait to play it again. I didn't catch on to everything with the keeping score and changing income/reputation but with the cheat sheet card that's given to every player I could have done it(had help from 2 other players) it was fun picking which tile to play and where to place it and cashing in when others played something that would work on my tile(my airport got me extra $ when someone else had 3 airports for instance) I happen to enjoy tiles so this is one I think I'll like more and more.
