Does anyone know if these two games are similar.

I'm really considering La Citta, but I don't like Attika at all (there's no tough choices in it).

If La Citta is too much like Attika, then I don't care for it, and I would be severely dissappointed after paying the $75+ for an English copy.

Opinions?

I personally like Attika as it's a nice lite game. But it is no where near La Citta, (a great game) which has a lot more depth and really cool tiny people with a load of tough choices to be made.

However, $75.00 is a bit steep for any game (IMHO).

I've played both, and don't find the games to be remotely similar except in theme. Like you, I didn't care for Attika, but La Citta is great! It's a long, heavy game though (by German standards).

What about La Citta vs Anno 1503, are they similar?

I would like a good city building/economic/exploration game.

Any recommendations would be good.

I dislike Attika for beomg a boring, constrictive little puzzle.

I quite like La Citta - it's got a few basic interactions between item types, and is much more about building powerful cities that occupy valuable territory and suck away citizens from the other side.

Attika feels like a race to solve a maximization-against-randomness puzzle with mild influence from the other players. La Citta is all about blocking, taking, outmaneuvering, and generally sticking it to your opponent.

Fun.

See, I'd say that's the same thing Attika is.

We played a three player game of Attika and it was great fun. I like La Citta too but, as expressed before, I wouldn't say they're anything like each other.

La Citta vs. Attika
I play and like both games, although the nod definitely goes to La Citta for fun, suspense, and replayability.

I don't see any similarities between the two, either.

I got my copy of La Citta last year for about $45 (or less). Look around and you will find a copy for less somewhere.

La Città is great!
Believe it or not, I think La Città most resembles Tigris & Euphrates. In both games, you are building cities trying to balance resources as best as possible. La Città is a ton of fun and if I had to give you one bit of advice, Feed your people!
