2 to 6 players compete to build the most amazing Town. Each turn the "Master Builder" determines which resource will be produced, and all the players gain one unit of that resource. Players can decide to use their resources to construct buildings according to the construction cards in play. Choose carefully! Where you build, and what you build will determine how dense your Town will be and how many points it will score! At the end of the turn, a new player becomes Master Builder. Play continues until every player’s Town is at max density, and then each Town is scored to determine the winner..
Tiny Towns is a competitive game about building a well-designed township from a shared pool of resources. It uses an innovative mechanism of resource selection where each player receives the same resources in the same order. This is a fast-playing game of low rules complexity but substantial strategic depth.

Very simple to play and teach, but at just two players, it was pretty challenging to always play well. I can imagine it gets quite chaotic at higher player counts. My wife enjoyed it at first, but then I got pretty good at the game so it is mostly just frustrating for her now. So, there is that potential downside. You have to use not only the resources that you want and call out, but also whatever the other player(s) want and call out. It can quickly ruin your plans if they aren't building the same things. I really like that puzzle here.
I played it a few times with my family and they love it! Easy to teach and learn with enough variation to keep it interesting. If you’re looking for a game that is engaging for all levels of gamers, not too long, and you won’t get discouraged from playing it because one or more people in the group don’t know the rules,, then I would suggest this game. I will say, at my game group which tends to like medium to heavyweight euros, it hasn’t hit the table yet, but everyone there that has played it enjoys it as well (as a family game). My family is 9 years old and up, and they can all play, and although I doubt my youngest will win anytime soon, she can play and enjoy it!
This is a fun, fast playing strategy game. My daughter and I love it. We first played a demo copy at a gaming cafe and had to buy a copy of our own. Complex enough to not get boring, but easy enough to learn and play without tons of frustration.
We love Tiny Towns!!
My brother introduced us to this game and we had to buy it for ourselves. Our 9 year old son can play too, although it is harder for him to execute a good strategy. Not too hard to get started but quite challenging to win.
I'm an Ameritrash gamer that's getting into Euro games. This is a good game! I like the look of the finished town of wooden buildings, the reasonable setup and tabletop footprint. The gameplay is solid, with choice or card draws about the resources, and a focus on spatial placement (a favorite of mine). My only gripe is that there should be more of the 3-resource tokens like the cottage, alehouse, and farm tokens. These run out a bit too quickly, especially with more players. While a reasonable limitation is good, they should have issued the tokens by volume over quantities. So there are way too many of the biggest ones. Still, a good game and welcome addition to my collection. Especially glad that it has solo rules too!
Enjoy this one solo as well as multiplayer. Quality components, easy to teach and play but hard to master!
