I’ve wanted a copy of Big City for years but was not willing to pay the premium prices for the out of print (OOP) game. Valley Games announced that they were printing another version but that was well over a year ago and I was getting tired of waiting. As luck would have it, I saw a “Like New” copy go up in the BGG marketplace for only $30 so after exchanging some emails with the owner I jumped at the chance.
The copy arrived today and it looks freshly punched and the rules feel like they’ve never been opened. I inventoried the bits tonight and got started on learning the rules. This time, at least, it paid off to wait for the right moment to jump.
