Quadropolis


Recommended for Ages 8 & up
2-4 Players
60 minutes playtime

Description:
Each player builds their own metropolis in Quadropolis (first announced as City Mania), but they're competing with one another for the shops, parks, public services and other structures to be placed in them.

The game lasts four rounds, and in each round players first lay out tiles for the appropriate round at random on a 5x5 grid. Each player has four architects numbered 1-4 and on a turn, a player places an architect next to a row or column in the grid, claims the tile that's as far in as the number of the architect placed (e.g., the fourth tile in for architect #4), places that tile in the appropriately numbered row or column on the player's 4x4 city board, then claims any resources associated with the tile (inhabitants or energy).

When a player takes a tile, a figure is placed in this now-empty space and the next player cannot place an architect in the same row or column where this tile was located. In addition, you can't place one architect on top of another, so each placement cuts off play options for you and everyone else later in the round. After all players have placed all four architects, the round ends, all remaining tiles are removed, and the tiles for the next round laid out.

After four rounds, the game ends. Players can move the inhabitants and energy among their tiles at any point during the game to see how to maximize their score. At game end, they then score for each of the six types of buildings depending on how well they build their city — as long as they have activated the buildings with inhabitants or energy as required:


Residential buildings score depending on their height
Shops score depending on how many customers they have
Public services score depending on the number of districts in your city that have them
Parks score depending on the number of residential buildings next to them
Harbors score based on the longest row or column of activated harbors in the city
Factories score based on the number of adjacent shops and harbors


Some buildings are worth victory points (VPs) on their own, and once players sum these values with what they've scored for each type of building in their city, whoever has the highest score wins.

We have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return. The exception is on any preordered items, or sealed TCG product which are not refundable or returnable. Due to the way we purchase preorders immediately from our distribution, we cannot accept returns, exchanges, or process refunds on presale items, sale items, or gift cards.

Shipping Policy

All orders are subject to begin shipping between 7-10 business days of their official release date. This applies especially to preorders, but not excluding other purchases. Although we work very hard to ship out all orders as quickly as possible, we are a small shipping operation and we ship out orders in the order they were purchased. When we ship out preorders, that means a large quantity of orders we must ship out, which takes more than one day. We provide some of the best pricing available on the market to accommodate for potential undesired shipping time. Thank you for understanding your order will ship out in 7-10 business days.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

To start a return, you can contact us at store@gamegridslc.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

You can always contact us for any return question at store@gamegridslc.com.
