Flip City by Tasty Minstrel Games
Flip City by Tasty Minstrel Games is a micro-deckbuilder. It has everything you need in one box. No buying blind bags or expansions to build your decks up. Yet, it has great play ability. In this deck both sides of the cards are playable. This is my guess to why the game is called Flip City. 🙂 During your building phase you can purchase buildings and/or upgrade them . Upgrading the buildings is as simple as spending the money and flipping the card. Yet, getting your strategy and knowing which cards you want to flip is harder that you would think.
This game is unique has you don’t actually have a hand while playing. You will play directly from the top of your deck. Each card that you lay will have a special action box that you have to complete. You can earn money, ribbons or sad faces. Once you have 3 sad faces played, your turn has to end and you don’t collect any money. You try to end your turn before you hit 3 sad faces, so you can move to the building phase. However, If you play 8 ribbons in your card playing phase you win!!!
We really love the fact that you can enjoy this game with the different variants. The solo variant is quite fun. I like to try different strategies or time myself while playing solo. You know basically get really good. So I can kick everyone else’s butts. That’s what solo variants are for right?
