City of the Big Shoulders Impressions

January 21, 2020

by Ambie Valdés
Note: I received a free review copy of City of the Big Shoulders from Parallel Games.

It’s not really a secret that I’m into economic games and 18xx games. When I read the rules to City of the Big Shoulders, an economic game with stock holding, worker placement, and factory production, it sounded a lot like a mix between Arkwright and 18xx to me. Since I love both of those, I was excited to try out City of the Big Shoulders.
