My City – Hints & Tips for Chapter 2

This is one in a series of posts regarding the legacy game, My City. You can access all my posts on that game HERE.

Chapter 2 – The Churches

Envelope 2 contains the things you need for Episodes/Games 4 to 6. Open it up when you are ready for Game 4. The information for the games is hidden behind spoiler tags below.

My City: Chapter 2 Envelope

Episode 4
The envelope contains a Rule sheet, an Overview sheet, a sticker sheet, some new cards and a punch board with new tiles. It is all available when you open the envelope, but we’ll just look at them as you need them for each chapter. First, the new rules for episode 4.

MY City: Episode 4 Rules

Each player gets 3 new Church tiles, from the included punch board. Sort the tiles by the matching player icon, and add their corresponding cards to the deck. These church tiles have a book and a number 3 on them. This detail is not important in game 4. Their are some church tiles with no icons on them. Set them aside till after the game.

Churches must be built. You cannot pass when a church card turns up. If you cannot build a church, then your part of the game is over and you cannot build anymore buildings.

There is also a blocking card that you add to the deck. When you reveal it during the game, you immediately play another card. The building you reveal immediately after the blocking card cannot be built, even if it is a church. Turn that building tile over.

Scoring

My City: Episode 4 Scoring

Scoring for episode 4 is identical to episode 3. Add points for trees, groups of buildings, and if you managed to build 4 different buildings next to a well. Deduct points for passing, rocks and empty light green spaces. Colour in circles for the winner, and second place in a game of 3 or 4. Then each player gets an extra church building, its shape is dependent on how they placed in the game. The back of these 4th church buildings has an empty hexagon space, where each player can affix their icon sticker.

Church Stickers

Shuffle the card for the 4th church building into the deck, for the remaining games.

Episode 5

My City Episode 5 Rules

A new rule is added in episode 5. If you construct a building of each colour adjacent to a church, that church scores 3 extra points. Each player has 4 churches and can now earn 12 additional points.

Scoring

Episode 5 Scoring

At the end of episode 5, you colour in 2 circles for the winner, and 1 for second place in a game of 3 or 4. The players that did not colour in a circle get a replacement sticker for one of their churches. This increases the score value of that church to 5, when you construct 3 different coloured buildings adjacent to it.

Number 5 Church Sticker

You apply the sticker to any of the 4 churches, so it is worth considering the different shapes. The smallest churches cover 2 squares and have only 6 spaces to connect with other buildings. The larger shapes have 8 spaces to connect with other buildings. The cross shape looks like it has more, because it has 12 sides. But each of the corners means 2 sides must touch an adjacent building, so it only has 8 connecting spaces as well.

Episode 6

My City Rules for Episode 6

Episode 6 plays has all the same rules as the previous 5, but you no longer have the ability to pass. You must construct every building that you reveal. At the point that you can not place a building tile, you are out of the episode.

Scoring

My City Episode 6 Scoring

Scoring for episode 6 is identical to episode 5. And again, the players that don’t colour in a circle during scoring, place a “5” sticker on one of their churches.

End of Chapter 2

Episode 6 is the end of chapter 2. When you are ready to continue, open the envelope for Chapter 3: The Flood, which contains episodes 7 to 9.

    Thank you so much for creating these pages. They are an amazing resource for me, as I threw out all the relevant information after my second playthrough of the campaign. We are playing the game for a third time no, over on our twitch channel. Together with our followers, who are playing along at home, through their own score sheet. EVery week we play the next game, we are starting game 4 next week. So I hope you will continue the series in a timely fashion for us to keep going πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Dave. Glad you’re finding them useful. I am in the middle of my first play through with my family, so I’ll do my best to keep ahead of you. πŸ™‚

    Please do keep going! We’re playing in Switzerland where we could only find a German-language version and the Chapter details are making it possible to keep playing. Thanks for sharing this great resource!

        Thanks! We muddled through 3 and are now starting 4; this was good timing to go back and confirm what we got right and wrong in 3 (only missed building on top of the forest in episode 9).
