Only one play, but my wife and I really enjoyed this game. I think it'll just get better with more plays and/or more players.

Fun and light game. Have to agree that the artwork on the tiles was not well thought out. It can be very confusing trying to keep track of what has been renewed and what has not. My desire to keep the game 'original' has kept me from modifying the tiles. Other than that, a fun game deserving of continual play.

REALLY enjoy this game. It's nothing particular new but it still manages to take familiar mechanics and do something light but engaging with them. The decisions are often tough and always interesting and the back and forth with stealing specialists and the hidden goals are fun. My only complaint (like many others) is that the graphic design for this

Like Ticket to Ride with bonus victory conditions but without paths. Board is a little cluttered and tough to read, but the game play is pretty darned good. Would play when I wanted to play Lords of Vegas but had five players instead of four.

Similar to Ticket to Ride, but with added investments (hired specialists) and with buildings instead of trains. As others have said, the board is frustratingly impossible to read, all the colors look the same, and the artwork isn't the greatest. By far the most annoying part of the game is that money is tallied by the discard cards you keep in front of you, meaning that if everyone is hoarding their money, the draw pile gets smaller and smaller. We might fix this by using coins or poker chips next time.

On the other hand, the game is a lot better than the BGG reviews would suggest. I like the variety of the secret goals, and the specialists can really help you rack up points. The board is large enough that a two-player game is a bit too easy: I'd like to play with 3-4 to see the competition heat up a bit.

Yes, the colour choices are pretty appalling. My favourite one is the colours of the specialists. For example: the specialist in charge of business buildings (I think they're called) wears a dark blue shirt....and he's in charge of the PINK buildings? A major, major graphic re-design is needed.
But apart from that significant flaw, this is an absurdly underrated game, with a most definitely pasted-on theme! It has a lot of similarities to Alhambra and Ticket to Ride, but is deeper than either. Two actions and four to choose from makes this quite challenging, although Lady Luck is definitely there in the card selection, but not quite to the same extent as Alhambra and TtR.
It's a rather painful guessing game. Since you generally don't have any idea what goals your opponents are working on, you have to be watching their every move for hints.
Contrary to what many are saying, the specialists are quite important, as continued possession of important ones will rake in a lot of points over the game.
Give Urbania a major graphics overhaul and I'm sure it would be more popular than Ticket to Ride! There, I've said it!

Similar mechanics to Ticket to Ride, but offers a bit more depth in strategy.
