Suburbia cover: a 1950s couple in front of a dream developmentThe main goal of Suburbia is to increase the reputation of your 'Borough' so that more people will live there than in any of the others. This you do by adding new developments such as factories, parks or housing estates which increase your Income (so that you can buy more developments) and Reputation. The higher your reputation, the more people will come to your borough each round.

Of course the other players want those developments as well. Timing is crucial to get the developments you want unless you can afford to pay extra for them. At the same time, you need to look for synergy between your developments to maximise your returns. And keep in mind the bonuses that are available at the end of the game. These can have a big effect on the final result.

Having played it a lot, I'm impressed by Suburbia. It's a clever game where you need to keep an eye on what's coming up in the market and just what your opponents are up to. There's great satisfaction in putting together a good mix of developments, even if your borough isn't the best, which means the game is good fun even when (like me!) you're losing.

The idea of this expansion is that players want to bring tourists to their Borough, as well as people wanting to live there. So the new building tiles have star symbols, indicating their attractiveness to tourists. The stars are another resource for players to manage as they establish turn order and provide extra bonuses and penalties.

On top of this, replacement boards and extra playing pieces extend the game to a fifth player, which is good news as far as I'm concerned.
