In Underwater Cities, by Vladimir Suchy (designer of Last Will and Pulsar 2849), the players build and develop underwater metropolises by constructing kelp farms, desalination plants, laboratories, and tunnels to connect them.

The heart of the game is a clever mechanism using a combination of action slots and development cards. If played strategically, the players can receive a bonus for the card matching the slot.

Balancing these strategic choices is the key to building the best underwater habitat, allowing humanity to thrive.

    I fun thinker in the vein of TM. It's rewarding to watch your civilization come together.

    Under-whelmed

    Without getting deep into it, the theme for this game is extremely shallow. Instead of immersing the player in this underwater fantasy, you'll be wading through its over-abundance of themeless iconography. While it includes some neat, unique domes for your player board, the game is otherwise drowning in cheaply made components. While the underlying economic puzzle might anchor some players, after my few games I'm ready to throw this game overboard.

    Great Game

    Great game!! Similar to Terraforming Mars but the city building is different enough to have both on the shelf.
