BUILD A CITY.
MAKE A FORTUNE.
In Magnate: The First City you’re a tycoon trying to make as much money
as you can in a citywide property boom by building an empire of realistic 3D buildings.
But beware… the boom will eventually go bust in a game-ending market crash!
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“An excellent modern economic game with compelling depth and sharp satire.” (Michael Barnes, There Will be Games 5/5)
“A clever coalition of concept, gameplay and a point of view, Magnate: The First City delivers an economic-based city-building game to rival the classics.” (Tabletop Gaming Magazine)
“Magnate is a superbly elegant economic game” (Calvin Wong, Board Game Atlas)
“The components are first rate. There are tons of interesting decisions to make each turn.” (David Weiss, The Daily Worker Placement)
“ It was clever before… When the market crashes, it’s clear that this is borderline brilliant.” (Dan Thurot, Space Biff! 8/10)
“The beautiful and terrifyingly accurate financial modelling and the pacey gameplay make this a game that I thoroughly recommend” (Iain McAllister, The Giant Brain 9/10)
“Its the perfect mix of theme and mechanics… it has the strategic depth to sit among classics like Powergrid” (Bryan Gerding, Tabletop Polish 9/10)
Monopoly this is not. Magnate: The First City gives a real sense of dabbling in the property market and trying to outfox your rivals… The component quality is top…the game just oozes class. (We’re not Wizards)
