Welcome To Your Perfect Home (or simply Welcome To…) is a ‘Roll and Write’ game that uses cards instead of dice. Each player is building their neighborhood, hoping to build the best suburban paradise.
Each player will have their own neighborhood sheet to track their building progress.
Each turn, players will pick from one of three building opportunities from those available.
The players will pick one of the numbers with the corresponding building addition and add it to their neighborhood. When adding house numbers to a street, house numbers must be increasing from left to right, so proper advanced planning is key.
With each added house comes an additional construction option; Pools, fences, parks, etc. Each of these provides various bonuses and points at the end of the game, if properly organized.
Welcome To… requires a lot of planning and ability to roll with which options are provided to you. There are tons of different strategies to aim towards and loads of different ways to gather points.
So get out there and build the best Pleasantville you can!
