Have you ever been to Scotland? Marvellous country, lots of excellent, writers and skilled entrepreneurs. Tonight, we give you a little tour of Glasgow!
Today Glasgow is the biggest city in Scotland and third-biggest in the United Kingdom. Since the 18th century, the city of Glasgow saw a great restructuring. Merchants of the area took the lead in developing what became modern Glasgow, one of the first grid plan cities in Europe. In this competitive game for 2 players, you play as one of those merchants, brokering contracts at the docks and buying real estate with the hope of having the greatest contribution to the new city of Glasgow.
Glasgow the board game is a quick tile laying and resource management game by designer Mandela Fernández-Grandon. Two players aged 10 and up compete to become the most successful merchant in the city of Glasgow. A variable setup and, at least in the beginning of the game, an undefined placement grid promise a lot of replay value. After approximately 30 minutes, the players score their buildings and the player with most points wins the game.
The „board“ set up follows the river Clyde, or more precisely the architects and contractors who use the river to ship, sell and buy goods to build this flourishing city and set their landmarks by doing so.

Holidays are over, back to work. So let’s start with answering fan questions:
“My original Patchwork has a patch that shows no costs, but makes me advance three spots. Is this a printing error?”
Answer from the Lookout:
Not at all. Uwe installed two bulky parts in the basic concept that resemble crosses. Since these are difficult to fit in due to their shape, he has set the costs for them low to compensate. Therefore, there is indeed one single patch the player can buy for free 😊 (= for 0 buttons). The label of this particular patch therefore shows no costs but sends you 3 spaces further on the timeline.
For original Patchwork, we kept the label that way in agreement with Uwe. For the special and folklore editions, the label of this Patchwork was given a cost of "0". Examples of this are shown in today’s pictures.

🧡In Uwe's family, this patch is called the "Nocosta".
💙Our colleague Grzegorz takes care it is NOT part of the start players choice of patches...
Tell us - is the "Nocosta" the mighty sword
