How to Play

Set up the town, leaving one empty space. Slide buildings around to reach the ones you want to activate. Each move blocks off part of the town, while opening other parts for use. Activate the building actions to collect and trade resources. Each player can only hold limited resources, but if you hold the right ones, you can collect and use them on other players’ turns. Resources are used to trade for points directly, or to upgrade the town buildings, improving the available actions for everyone while earning points. Earn the most points to become the new Mayor of Iceburgh.
