I have an urge to play a city-building board game but I couldn't find any. Is there any such games available? If not, can someone help develop it ? I'm thinking of something like Monopoly which let us learn about the real-life information of different cities but more interactive like CityVille (I know it's not a board game but it's a good example). What do you think about this kind of game? Do you think it will be fun?

You should also have a look at 20th Century.

You can build one of several cities (though they're all the same). This is especially fun with only 2 players.

Big City is one on my interest list, it looks like a good simple game that would be fun to play. Love the 3D components.

But Urban Sprawl I've got my pre-order in and am very excited for it to ship in August. I've always wanted a good "SimCity" type game, and this one is looking to be the most detailed and realistic one I've ever seen. But with that said, it will be at least Medium weight\difficulty... so be ready to learn some deep rules.
