TableTop Fun: Suburbia

For the holiday weekend, we had a 3 day board game session with Drew. Ian got a ton of games for his birthday. The first one we tried was Suburbia.
From BoardGameGeek:
Plan, build, and develop a small town into a major metropolis. Use hex-shaped building tiles to add residential, commercial, civic, and industrial areas, as well as special points of interest that provide benefits and take advantage of the resources of nearby towns. Your goal is to have your borough thrive and end up with a greater population than any of your opponents.
This game was a little frustrating for me. It involves a lot of math... I'm not good at doing even simple math in my head. I usually reverse numbers or read a 4 and think 5. I still found it fun because it involved city building, somewhat similar to Alhambra. I think it was a hit with Drew, Ian and even Emma. :]
That was the best shot. It took a lot of shots. :P
