Scribbletown is a 1-100 player roll 'n' write game in which you are building a city with houses, factories, stores etc., and connecting the buildings with roads. It will launch on Kickstarter on January 19.
You will start Scribbletown by shuffling the deck of Special Building cards and drawing six of them for your session. Then, you roll the 4 custom dice (two building and two road dice), and either: choose to draw two of the results on your City board, or mark a Waste space on your board and draw a special building if you meet the requirements. Whenever you build a factory, you have to tick a waste box, and if you gather too much waste, you have to make an ugly scribble on your board to signify a dumping ground.
The first time you cross a hex with a road, you put a dot in the hex corner. If you cross that same hex with a road for the second time, you fill up the corner circle and add another waste to your board. You can only draw up to two roads on the same hex, and these roads cannot cross.
When you finish up your drawing by filling all the land plots, you proceed to scoring. The solo mode is a beat-your-own-score. For each junk pile you have drawn on your board, you take a penalty and lose the points of your highest scoring building.
