North Star Games is bringing Warsaw:  City of Ruins to the U.S. from its native Poland, releasing it in August following a limited premier at Origins.

Originally published under the title Capital in 2016 by Polish pubisher Granna, Warsaw:  City of Ruins follows the history of the great Polish city in the 20th Century.  Over six rounds, the players guide the growth and development of the city, scoring points for how well their district of the city has grown.  But during the game, war will ravage the city, forcing the players to rebuild over the ruins of what they had accomplished before

Warsaw:  City of Ruins was designed by Filip Milunski (CV) and is intended for 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up, and takes about an hour to play.  MSRP is $49.99.

Earlier this year, North Star launched a new imprint, Happy Planet, for it’s casual game line (see “North Star Games Launches Happy Planet”).
