Magnate: The First City Board Game Up On Kickstarter

The city is going through a massive building boom. Real estate magnates and contractors are coming together and construction is happening like never before. But who will get the best locations and who will be left with the bad neighborhoods? That's up to you to decide in Magnate: The First City, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

In Magnate: The First City, you are a property developer trying to make as much money as you can in a city wide construction boom.

You'll have to choose the land you're going to buy and decide what to build there from a range of realistic 3D buildings. You'll collect rent from the tenants you attract to your developments and then, when the time is right, sell your property for a massive profit.

But beware, your actions will cause prices to rise. Eventually prices will climb too high and the boom will turn to bust in a game-ending market crash! Don't get caught out when it does.

The campaign's around 3x funded but with only 8 days left to go.
