Welcome, Citizen of the World. Ready for a tour around the globe? Begin a challenge where you will utilize your travel knowledge about culture, geography, climate, society and much more. Discover countless details of cities around the world. Enjoy fun and unexpected conversations. You will compare cities based on different categories. You will ask yourself questions like: 

The game consists of 90 playing cards, 2 category cards and an instruction booklet.   

The graphic design of the cards and the box has been chosen thoroughly. More than a year of graphic design work trying to capture the essence of the game. You will find a black and white sleek design with a city map and a skyline background on the front and back sides of the cards.   

How to play CITIZENS? Be the first one to place all your cities correctly on the table.
How to play CITIZENS? Be the first one to place all your cities correctly on the table.

To beat your opponents you don´t need to know the exact answer. Instead, you need to be the best player comparing cities according to the 6 categories of the game.  Each of them will make you think about the cities in a completely different way.  

Each player starts with several cards, which means each player starts with different cities of the world. In order to win the game, you must be the first one to place all your cards correctly on the table.    

Every time a player positions correctly one of their cities on the table, the comparison gets more complicated and interesting for the next player as the options increase. If you love game strategies, you can decide to activate a different category for the game or even challenge other players, you can check all the details in the rulebook

With your support we would like to go further. CITIZENS may look even better with a customized design of each card. This is an important effort on graphic design.

Spread the word on Facebook, Instagram and Board Game Geek to help us reach these amazing stretch goals to make your game experience even cooler.

Our international and awesome team has carried out an extraordinary work of data research and has put together a balanced and interesting content on the cards. We´ve put a ton of time in developing a great gameplay, so that the game is short, fun and fair. You will find yourself planning your next trip adventure!    

We need your support so that we can finalise the design and the development of the game and establish the production with our suppliers. In essence, with your help we will construct a solid foundation for the future of CITIZENS. In exchange we will send you an awesome copy of the game and will add your name to the founding team of this Kickstarter campaign.  

We will be ready to launch production just a few weeks after the campaign. We have included in our plans enough margin to make sure you will get your game before Christmas time. We know how important this time of the year is for you, so we are committed to delivering the game on time.

All that's left is to get you on board and to crank up the machinery!

If you have any questions, you can direct them to us via email to citizens.thegame@gmail.com

We will be working with shipping partners within the EU, US and Canada to provide region-friendly shipping in each of these zones. 

Shipping will be collected after the Kickstarter via our pledge manager. The shipping costs here is a fair estimate. We will be charging the actual shipping cost to be able to offer you the best possible value in pledge prices. We will work to offer you the best alternative possible to reduce your shipping costs. We will also establish local collection points (such us some partner game stores) where you could directly collect your game.

Above all, we are travelers, like most of you. And we are good friends, like you and your closest ones. Our intention is to create this amazing game so that you can have fun with your finest friends at home and during your future trips. We have dedicated our last decade to empower the meaning of friendship across borders and oceans. CITIZENS has been developed from concept design up to this point entirely across the Atlantic Ocean via Skype and Whatsapp calls as our main locations are in Montreal and in Seville.

Our greatest asset: our good and supportive friends around the globe. 

  • Carmen from Seville, our Community Manager. She has supported this project tirelessly from the beginning.
  • Our Brazilian-Montrealer, Roberto, Master of photography.   
  • Julie, Noelia and Yosuha in Toronto, Montreal and Vigo supporting production, audio and video editing, and translation too!  
  • The amazing cast of our video: our beloved Quebecois David; our italo-Spaniard-Australians Fede, Bea and Henar; our best Korean explorer Sumin & Co; our greatest gentleman Valentino from Macao; and our Spanish-Canadian-Venzuelian-French casting players Dan, Gabi, Raquel, Victor, Frede and Esther.
