The video explanation for this game is now live. You can access it by tapping on the "play" button on the screen.

Hope that clears things up! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Millville has created three new development zones: Z1, Z2, and Z3. Within these zones, subzones can be designated for housing, industrial, or retail use, with no subzone designated for more than one use. By city regulation, a total of no more than three subzones can be designated for each of the three uses. The following restrictions are in place:

I am confused by the language that no sub zone is designated for more than one use. This reads to me that a sub zone can not be used more than once which doesn't work out in the game

Ben I am just as confused by that rule and it actually caused me some problems with this game! I thought I was alone in that. I didn't find any guidance on that specifically in the videos.

Can someone clarify what "with no subzone designated for more than one use" translates to in our rules/setup?

And to make sure I understand, "a total of no more than three subzones can be designated for each of the three uses" is that within one zone or across all three zones? Meaning, we can only have 3H 3R and 3I in total regardless of what zone they are in? Or we can have more than that, just confined to 3 within each subzone?

Thanks so much!

Hi @allisonfarley and @Ben-Couse,

Happy to help! I agree - the language in this game is a little tricky.

To answer your first question, "no subzone designated for more than one use" means that one subzone cannot have two designations i.e. you can't have one subzone that is half H and half R. It doesn't really have a major impact on the setup if you treat this as a regular group game.

As for your second question, the first option is correct. Across all zones, there can be a maximum of 3H, 3R, and 3I. Therefore, there can be a maximum of nine subzones spread across the three zones.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
