2212: Ginkgo Biloba, the oldest and strongest tree in the world, has
become the symbol of a new method for building cities in symbiosis with
nature. Humans have exhausted the resources that the Earth offered them,
and humanity must now develop cities that maintain a delicate balance
between resource production and consumption. Habitable space is scarce,
however, and mankind must now face the challenge of building ever
upwards. To develop this new type of city, you will gather a team of
experts around you, and try to become the best urban planner for
In Ginkgopolis, the city tiles come in three colours: yellow, which
provides victory points; red, which provides resources; and blue, which
provides new new city tiles. Some tiles start in play, and they're
surrounded by letter markers that show where new tiles can be placed.
On a turn, each player chooses a card from his hand simultaneously.
Players reveal these cards, adding new tiles to the border of the city
in the appropriate location or placing tiles on top of existing tiles.
Each card that you play goes to your left-hand neighbour, so keep in
mind how your play might set up theirs!
When you add a new tile to the city, you take a "power" card of the same
colour, and these cards provide you additional abilities during the
game, allowing you to scale up your building and point-scoring efforts.
Ginkgopolis is a game for 1-5 players and takes approximately 45 minutes
