Build a city in a pioneering roll'n'write game!

Announcing Doodle City

Our Board Game Museum proudly presents a new precious exhibit - one of the first modern roll'n'write games Doodle City! Now dozens of games using dice, paper and pencil come out every year, but less than decade ago there were not almost any around. This game by Aporta Games became one of the first titles to introduce the innovative mechanic and still holds up perfectly.

In Doodle City, players are building a city and trying to score points for their hotels, shops and taxis by drawing a network of roads on their play sheet. Each round, one white die per player, one additional white die, and a blue die are rolled onto the table. The blue die indicates which column the players must use, while each white die indicates a row. In turn each player picks a white die and draws in the given space. In most spaces you draw roads, but in parks you instead build houses. You can draw only once in each space, and if on your turn you cannot draw, you gain pollution.

A building is scored the moment you draw in its space. For example, when you draw a road through a hotel space, you score points equal to the length of the road passing through that hotel. Shops score according to how many houses are currently connected to the shop. There are also bonuses awarded to the first player who connects a shop to a certain number of houses.

The game ends when one player completes the highest possible hotel or shop score, or when a player loses his last tree due to pollution. Final scores are for connected taxis and for having least/most pollution.
