      "This is great because my son is an architect and manages entire properties with a crew. The look on his face when I simulate his entire life will be priceless. I've played simcity and spore, but this has more playability, content and the chance I get to share this with my family is worthwhile."

      "really good strategy game. It is NOT a city-building game, and not really a puzzle game, though it looks like both. It involves placing city elements (houses, parks, warehouses, shopping centers) onto an isometric grid via cards in your deck. The grid regularly scrolls forward, opening up new squares to fill and "scoring" the elements you've already placed"
