Thames & Kosmos has announced that Reiner Knizia’s, My City will be hitting your local Barnes and Noble next month.
Nominated for the 2020 Spiel des Jahres Award (German for “Game of the Year”), My City is a city-building game where players will develop their city from the early preindustrial stages and progressing through industrialization over 24 different games. As a legacy style game, each players choices will modify their board over time through the application of stickers. My City stand out as having family-friendly rules and a built-in system of handicaps and advantages to help balance the game.
“The category of legacy games is hugely popular within the board game community. People love these types of games for the unique experiences they provide—no two games are the same,” explained Andrew Quartin, CEO of Thames & Kosmos. “The brilliance and allure of My City is in its more accessible approach to this category of game. Through simple rules, a relatively short play time, and a pattern of increasing difficulty as the game progresses, My City fits perfectly in our mission to make fun, addictive games that the whole family can enjoy. Plus, it offers a secondary, repeatable play experience thanks to double-sided game boards. This isn’t a trait that many other legacy games share.”
“We are so excited to be a launch partner for My City,” said Sabrina Testa, Toys & Games Buyer at Barnes & Noble. “I can’t wait to get this into our customers’ hands, and I can’t wait to play it with my own family!”
My City is now available to preorder now on barnesandnoble.com and will be available in store starting July 31, 2020. Other stores will be getting their copies in October 2020. You can learn more about My City at thamesandkosmos.com.
