Motor City is a strategic roll-and-write game about running an auto plant in the heyday of Detroit. – – 1 to 5 players – – 45 minutes game play.
In Motor City, you have two player sheets, each with multiple areas. These areas are represented by tracks that you will mark off as you make progress. Many of the tracks are interconnected with other elements in the game, giving you bonuses along the way and opportunities to unlock more points. Advancing on all of these tracks offers various amounts of points, advancements, and bonuses.
The game lasts eight rounds. Each round, roll colored dice based on the number of players, then place them on spaces on the blueprint table based on value and color. Each player drafts one die and uses it. Once everyone has drafted a die twice, all players get to use the remaining die on the blueprint table.
After eight rounds, you score points for your progress in engineering, assembly, testing, and more. Whoever has the most points wins.

publisher and designer description
In Solar Sphere, you will command a mothership and compete with your fellow Captains. You will use your ships and drones to gain resources, hire crew members, fight the Resistance, and ultimately build the Sphere. The game is played over a series of rounds. Each round consists of the following 4 phases: Dock, Deploy, Battle, and Recover. Players can manipulate their dice using drones. However, players have a limited supply of drones, which are also used to upgrade dice placement spots or to support in fights against aliens. Players can always recycle used drones to get them back into their supply. Or, spend them for instant benefits.
By building the Sphere, hiring crew members, and attacking the Resistance fleet, you will gain Faction icons that can be worth points at the end of the game. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
