Each of the game rounds has 2 phases: Day and Night.
During the Day, you’ll spend your action points to make the most out of the possible actions: Explore, Scavenge, Trade, Construct, and Challenge.
During the Night, Shanty Town’s Drunkards are on the prowl, looking for your buildings. Whenever they find one, your Survivors are scared away. Each round you can choose 4 of the 5 possible Actions:
Draw the top Building tile (hex) and place it face up underneath your Hero miniature. This tile represents the type of building that can be built on the hex.
You may Construct a building on any explored tile, provided that no other player is currently located there or has previously Constructed on the tile.
The Scavenge action allows you to search for Scraps and Relics. Roll the 5 Scavenge dice and take Scraps and Relics equal to the numbers and symbols rolled.
To Challenge a Drunkard, you’ll use a bottle of liquor, represented in the game by the 5 Drinking dice. The drinking glasses on the dice represent the swigs of liquor being drunk by you and your foe. Use Booze Cards to add some extra boost to your roll and tip the scales in your favor.
In the middle of the board and protected from wandering Drunkards, Uncle Harding's compound is literally and figuratively the center of Shanty Town. At his compound, you can Trade for all manner of goods, including Scraps, Corn, Relics, Moonshine, Gold, Booze, and Hangover Cures.

Risks and challenges
We prepared this project for almost 2 years. And that for one reason only: we knew from the beginning that this is not an easy job and we decided that we won’t launch the project until we are 100% prepared. So we took our time and learned everything it is to know about manufacturing, shipping possible delays and whatever else we could think of.
And after all this time we can finally say we are confident.
Furthermore, we are taking precautions and we're still not rushing things. We worked closely with our manufacturer to ensure not only the best quality, but also a smooth process and best prices.
This shipping time might seem long, but we’re the kind of people that prefer to set things up for a pleasant surprise of delivering earlier (if possible) instead of promising a speed we might not be able to live up to.
