Many say they don't care for the design and colors of the board. Let me just go on record as saying I actually find it quite attractive. I love it.

Fabulous on the first play, it reminds me of the card game scum because of the bidding. Plenty to think about with your placements and a level field for all players. Easy to learn and quick to play. A real winner.

After 5+ Plays: I'd been wanting to try this for a while, and I really liked it. I'm a little worried about how balanced the different bonus goals are, but I'll have to play it more to find out. I'm looking forward to trying it with two.

--Update: I'm upping this rating from 8 to 9. There really aren't any other games like this, and that's something I've grown to appreciate more with time.

Auction game with a twist. I like constricted auction games, and this one puts a spatial twist on the bidding. Very innovative and interesting.

Overall a solid game. There is actually a lot more strategy to this one than first meets the eye, particularly near the end of the game where areas get closed off, and you can start winning stuff with your small numbers.

An intriguing game.

Yes, it is a bidding game - but very different. The bidding is spatially oriented where the player is actually bidding on a different component.
Each player has his own objectives so each space is worth a different amount to each player.
It seems that an objective is to drive the bidding to locations where the results are worth more to you than your opponents.
I like how when you realize an opponents wants a space you can start the bidding there which denies the space.

Yes the board can be garish, but I like the look of the game as well as how it plays.

I am terrible at Metropolys. But it's so much fun I want to play it again and again. I am a loose cannon; I make the game unpredictable and fun for people who can see all of the mistakes I make. And that's okay. I delight in each disappointment as I see where I went wrong, when I see each dead end I've created for the player who can tell that he/she can set me up for a fall. It makes me smile as I think about how bad I am at Metropolys.

A genuinely fascinating and unique design, unlike anything else I've ever played. I love the dusky art nouveau styling of the board, especially as it contrasts with the brighter and lighter skyscraper pieces. It's a game I want to play more often, if only because it sets my thinking down an entirely different set of tracks.

Instant hit! This reminds me of earlier Euros that were streamlined in mechanics and still allowed for plenty of strategy.

I really enjoy this little abstract, and I have a thing for Art Deco, so that helps. the bluffing and the secret goals make this one a winner for me.

Simple on the surface, but complex deep down. Nice game that has a few minor flaws and could use some more spice and flavor, but does what it is designed for (abstract bidding / area control) very well.

Spacial auctions where planning for the endgame is essential.

Did I mention spacial auctions? Have never seen anything else like it. Very clever.

A well-produced area control game with an auction mechanic, and strong replayability. Essentially a filler, but still with enough depth to remain fresh.
