Industrial City (Type: City)

As towns grew, so did the business they supported.  Eventually, some cities filled with the hum of giant factories, employing thousands of workers and filling huge buildings.  These companies used raw materials like wool, iron ore, and logs to mass-produce finished products such as sailing ships, wagons, and weapons.

You cannot build an Industrial City directly.  You may only establish an Industrial City by upgrading one of your villages.  Building an Industrial City requires 3 Ore & 2 Grain. While Industrial Cities may be constructed on coastal intersections, they must always touch at least one land hex.  They may be built on a harbor or fish shoal. Boats can depart from an Industrial City constructed on a coastal intersection, but Ships cannot load/unload/set sail from an Industrial City.

  • Each Industrial City has one (1) sloped roof and two (2) flat roofs, so it can harvest one (1) Resource Card and two (2) Commodity Cards.
  • Each Industrial City costs _____.
