Deep Water Games
Welcome to... your perfect home. Become an architect in America during the 1950's and build the best neighborhoods in town!
As an architect in the roll-and-write game Welcome to... your goal is to build the best new town by adding pools, hiring employees, improving the parks, and more!
Each turn, flip cards from three piles to display three different action sets. Each set shows a house number that you must assign to one of the houses in your community and an optional corresponding action you can take. The house numbers on each street must ascend left to right, with one exception. The Bis Action lets you break that rule by duplicating a house number for a penalty.
You can adjust the house number shown in a set by 2 with a Temp Agency Action. Players with the most Temp Agencies at the end of the game score bonus points. Pools and Parks also provide end-game points and the Real Estate Agency Action lets you increase the value of your fenced-off subdivisions. The Fence Action lets you place fences.
Everyone is racing to be the first to complete the three public goals. Game play is simultaneous, so lots of people can play at the same time! There are lots of ways to build your community and many paths to becoming the best suburban architect in Welcome To...!
