What is Glasgow about?

To play Glasgow, players travel the city (in an abstract manner) to collect resources, take special actions, and most importantly, construct buildings. When you build a factory, you’ll receive more goods from it if other buildings are constructed near it; build a train station, and you might or might not score from it; build a monument, and you’ll merely collect points – and in the end, points are what really matter.

To set up the game, lay out a ring of random town figures, with two being removed each game. In the circle around town, whoever is further behind takes the next turn, advancing to whichever town figure they wish to see. Most of them give you resources – bricks, steel, and money – and you have a limit on how many of each type of resource you can keep. The figures have two random building plans, and if you visit one with the right resources, you can pay them, then build. If you pay extra, you’ll also be able to build something else.

Each subsequent building is placed adjacent to an existing building, eventually filling in a 4×5 (or 5×4) grid of the players’ own design. As soon as the twentieth building is completed, the game ends and players are awarded points. Which of them has made the greatest impact on Glasgow today?
