Big City, designed by the legendary Franz-Benno Delonge, was the board game which revolutionized the tabletop city-building genre when it was released twenty years ago. Sadly the game never saw a reprint in his lifetime, however, this year, Mercury Games have undertaken the behemoth task of bringing back Big City for its 20th anniversary, and it's going to be bigger than ever.

In Big City, players receive property cards which can be used to create different structures. The more properties you connect beside each other, the higher your point total. Points are also achieved for placing suitable buildings next to each other - for example, placing a park next to the mall, rather than a factory.

The 20th Anniversary Jumbo Editon will have sixty structures and contain eight modular neighbourhoods. Furthermore, Mercury Games are increasing the size of the structures and making this new run of miniatures extra detailed!

Images currently provided show unpainted samples, however, final versions of the miniatures will be solid PVC and colored according to type (red for residential, blue for commercial etc).

As if that wasn't already enough, Mercury Games are also including the first-ever expansion for Big City - Urban Upgrade. This new expansion contains two new neighbourhoods, four new building types, extra buildings, and a brand-new waterfront! The expansion also adds the ability to include a 5th player, so more developers can get in on the fun!

The Kickstarter for Big City: 20th Anniversary Jumbo Edition has already met its pledge target and, with just under a month to go, it will no doubt continue to unlock lots of interesting stretch goals before it is complete. So if you consider yourself a budding city planner, head over to the Kickstarter project page now.
