Description

In Manhattan, players construct a skyline of skyscrapers over several districts, or city blocks, of Manhattan Island. Ultimately, each player seeks to have built the tallest buildings in the most city blocks of the Island.

Each turn, players will play a card that illustrates which part of a city block they may place a "floor" on a building. The placement card is unique for each player in that the section they may place in is relative to their seating at the table. The player who has placed the top most floor controls that building. Each round, scores are tallied based on control of each of the neighborhoods.

At the end of the game, the player who has scored the most points through area control and tallest buildings wins.

Note: In the Finnish edition, the districts are named after six great cities of the world: Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Cairo, Sydney, Frankfurt and Manhattan.

The new reprint of Manhattan certainly looks amazing, with its colourful transparent towers that make it an Instagramer's dream. The aesthetics really do try and bring to life the theme in this 3-dimensional abstract game.

Manhattan is the 1994 Spiel des Jahres winner, making the game … roughly as old as I am (I’ve got two years on it). In it, you play as rugged industrialists vying to control towering skyscrapers across six major districts / cities. It’s been brought back and spiced up via Foxmind and the always-impeccable Jacqui Davis on the art (The Neverland Rescue and Purrrlock Holmes are some more of Jacqui’s impressive projects). Will your influence tower above the rest? Or are you going to have trouble getting your lofty ambitions off the ground?
