In Welcome to Centerville, players are the leading citizens of a small city, competing to grow their wealth and prestige as they guide the development of the metropolis, jockey for political office, and achieve their own personal milestones.
During a turn, each player rolls six dice, keeping some and re-rolling others Yahtzee-style. The symbols on the dice determine what actions the player may undertake that turn, which can include constructing new buildings within the city, canvassing for votes to get elected to local office, investing in the greenbelt surrounding the city, or collecting sets of vocation tiles. Three times during the game, scoring rounds give the players an opportunity to collect wealth and prestige points for their efforts. At the end of the game, the player who has the most wealth or prestige - counting only their lower value - wins the game.
Welcome to Centerville comes with an 11-inch by 17-inch game board, 4 player aids, die-cut tiles, 120 wooden cubes, 8 wooden discs, and six dice with stickers. The game is intended for 2 to 4 players, and plays in about 45 minutes. MSRP is $59.00.
