Trying to find a game where the gameplay is about moving around, collecting points, building something, etc, in a particular space/ city.
You want one or you're thinking of a specific game?
What would help to narrow down the search would be:
Is there a board?
Is the board a map of the city/town?
Is there more than 1 city/town or just the one?
Is the board restricted to only the city/town or is there also forest/water/etc.?
How many players?
Is this a dice rolling game?
Is the artwork drab and faded out or colourful?
Is the space/city: a) ancient history b) middle ages c) early modern d)fantasy e)sci-fi or f)current?
