Hi! It’s Ryan from Nights Around a Table, and this is Tiny Towns, a pattern-matching puzzle game for 1-6 players. Here’s the deal.

You and your friends ostensibly play woodland creatures building towns, but this is an abstract game with a very tacked-on theme, so don’t even worry about that. For each game, you’ll randomly deal out a set of building cards. On every turn, the active player will name a resource, and all players have to place one of those resource cubes on an empty space on their player boards. Once the resource is placed, if you match any of the building configurations from the cards, you can then trade the resources in for that type of building, which you can place on your board on any square where those resources cubes were sitting. Different buildings allow you to score in different ways. Once every player has passed because no one has room for any more stuff, you clear out all the resources that didn’t go towards building anything. Add up the points from your buildings, and subtract the empty spaces on your board, to find out who’s won!
