Suburbia From Bezier Games

Nov 172012


Release Date: Nov 2012

$ 59.99

Plan, build, and develop a small town into a major metropolis. Use hex-shaped building tiles to add residential, commercial, civic, and industrial areas, as well as special points of interest that provide benefits and take advantage of the resources of nearby towns. Your goal is to have your borough thrive and end up with a greater population than any of your opponents.


Suburbia is a tile-laying game in which each player tries to build up an economic engine and infrastructure that will be initially self-sufficient, and eventually become both profitable and encourage population growth. As your town grows, you’ll modify both your income and your reputation. As your income increases, you’ll have more cash on hand to purchase better and more valuable buildings, such as an international airport or a high rise office building. As your reputation increases, you’ll gain more and more population (and the winner at the end of the game is the player with the largest population).


During each game, players compete for several unique goals that offer an additional population boost – and the buildings available in each game vary, so you’ll never play the same game twice!

This is my type of game where you get to build system to grow and work all by it’s self Bezier Games made one I know I want to try.

Article 27

Release Date: Nov 2012

$ 49.95

Your country has chosen you to protect their interests. If that means you have to bend the rules a little bit, well that’s just the cost of justice, right? In Article 27, you assume the role of one of the members of the UN Security Council, which means you wield the power of the veto. No proposal can pass when a member uses their veto, so there had better be something in the deal for you! Negotiations on the proposals can include side-deals, threats, or outright influence-peddling! But once the gavel comes down it’s time to vote, so you better have greased all the right palms with influence or your proposal is sunk! Article 27 requires no knowledge of politics or the UN to enjoy. If you like negotiation games, you’ll love Article 27! Sales Points: • An easy to play, pure negotiation game • Very fast paced, plays in ~6 minutes per player • Awesome components including a huge game board, thick cardboard player mat and player screens, 100s of wood and cardboard tokens, and a real wooden gavel! • Beautiful, colorful and funny cartoony artwork • No knowledge of politics or the UN is required at all!

Now is time to prove what you have told your friends when you all sat around and said you could do it better then the politicians Stronghold Games has done it again and give us all a chance to put our money where are mouths are.
