TL;DR Review New York 1901
Blue Orange Games might not be known for their big-box games, but here we are with New York 1901, a city building / tile placement game that sees players take on the roles of budding city builders, growing New York's financial district from the ground up. At first glance it doesn't look like there's a whole lot of depth, but this game is full of both depth and theme, it's a real beauty.
From the box, to the components to the board New York 1901 is a really beautiful looking tabletop game. Uncomplicated rules and a family friendly feel (it's ages 8+) mean this game is great not only for light play, but also for hitting the table at your next big meetup. You have to hand it to the designers for the originality of theme. If you're sick of the same old thing hitting your shelf (oh look more zombies, more stealth, more bluffing) nab yourself a copy of New York 1901, at the very least give it a try if you get the chance.
