In City Council each player takes the role of a council member of a newly founded city. The government has selected the members of the city council for the first few years until the city rises and flourishes, by which time the most popular member will receive the position of mayor. In order to build the city, you and the other councilmen must maintain a low level of pollution, fight crime, create jobs, and sustain an adequate city budget. If you and the others don't keep up the good work, the city project might not succeed, the government will take over, and all players will lose.
On her turn in the city council meeting, Amanda says: "I think that the High School is our best option to educate more Citizens and increase our workforce to support the Hospital we just built the last round".
Brian: "I value your opinion, but suggest that we need a new Factory, as our Unemployment rate is way to high and it will affect the Crime rate on a not so positive way".
Colin: "I respectfully disagree with both of my high esteemed councilmen. I suggest that we go for a brand new Shopping Mall, we need to uptake tax collection and thus refilling our Budget."
Diane: "I must remind all of my colleagues that we are having a serious Pollution issue that we need to address, we need a clean waste disposable solution and getting some unemployed citizens back to our workforce, so the only conceivable building would be the Recycling Center".
This is the core of the game, pitching your offer and try to "sell" it to fellow politicians so you can promote your own secret and ever-changing Agenda.

In 2013, we published our 3rd board game - "City Council", a unique ahead of it's time negotiation game. As years goes by we published 2 really cool expansions which adds more factions and new co-op gameplay (with solo rules as well).
We decided to run a short and limited exclusive campaign for the Deluxe Edition which incorporate all the expansions and game modes into one box.
We only going to sell 180 copies of this exclusive edition and only available through this KS. This why we won't offer any stretch goals.

Undead Viking Review:
As a small indie publisher - board games are our passion and we made new content to support our fans since 2011. This game is one of the most unique games ever designed and we thought that we can share this deluxe edition with you. Also, as most of the art and products already paid, we need the funds raise here to continue developing and producing more cool games.
We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK and Germany (EU backers) and USA (serving US and the rest of the world backers). We will use Gamequest for our UK & EU fulfillment and Amazon fulfillment services for the US and International fulfillment.
I wish to thank you for taking your time and reading and considering backing our game :)
Risks and challenges
City Council is our 12th KS project and we have a lot of experience with the risks and challenges that we might face while fulfilling this project.
Delays in production:
None expected - we already developed and finished the production of most components in this exclusive offer.
Delays in logistics:
We might face some delays in shipping the games, with the international shipping factors and local distribution via Amazon fulfillment services.
As you may know we are having issues with our last KS, we are still trying to compensate our backers for the delays in production. This project won't have any repeatable issues as most components are ready for fulfillment in our US warehouse.
Thanks for considering backing our game :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
