That's good news, in that Zev will surely replace the bizarre scoring device found in Capitol. I haven't played Capitol in years, but I've never forgotten that crazy scoring thingie.

Holy Hell! Count me among the folks who are glad that we got it before the retheme, wacky scoring track and all!



Great game, though!

Consider, too, what direction your feelings may take when you understand the liklihood that the new name will take precedence on a combined game page, here. Such a change would be in line with other history.

That would be http://www.boardgamenews.com, in case anyone wasn't familiar with "bgn".

That's not quite accurate. Some of us use it. Some of us think it's one of the coolest parts of the game. And more bad news, we are legion...

Hi there,

I've gone through the rules this morning and these were the differences I found between Capitol and the new edition by Z-Man games : Skyline 3000 (for those interested).

1) The distribution on the gameboards is different : first up is Skyline (X denotes the temple / greenspace placements) and just below is Capitol. First the colour of the region, following by the number of spaces.
B=blue, W=white, Y=yellow, R=red

B6
(W5)
B7
(W6)
B9 X
(W8 X)

Y6
(R6)
Y7
(R7)
Y9 XX
(R9 X)

R6
(B5)
R7
(B6)
R10 XX
(B8 X)

2) Billboards... Present in Skyline 3000 and used to 'reserve' a spot (-1 point when placed), yet worth 1 extra point for the region and the 1st and 2nd player(s). Lacking from Capitol...

3) the scoring mechanism is indeed gone and replaced by the more traditional scoring track around the gameboard

Anything else I missed?

One thing they shouldn't have changed or at least made a better change is on the name... "Skyline 3000" I thought when I first heard the name and didn't know what it was and I still think.. is that this is a reprint or sequel to Skyline of the World
