A winning combination of fun and learning, this unique introduction to New York's architecture lets players experience firsthand the strategy and triumph of building a masterpiece.

Conceived by a world-renowned game designer, the Prestel New York Architecture Game challenges players as it explores the architectural feats that went into constructing twenty four New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Guggenheim Museum, the New York Stock Exchange and the Brooklyn Bridge. Kids and adults alike will find much to learn as they race to complete their projects first. The game includes an elegant full-color booklet filled with photographs, background information and stories about each building, its architects, and its historical significance.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Prestel New York Architecture Game?

Fun game, not necessarily educational  Jan 12, 2008
I got this game for my brother, who is an architecture major. I just thought he'd enjoy the pictures of the buildings, but the game itself is really fun, especially for a group of 4 or 5. It was somewhat complicated to learn, but once we had played it a few times, we all really enjoyed it. It involves collecting the cards that, when put together, make up a famous building. There's also an element of speed and being the first to match cards.
There is some information about the buildings included, but the game does not teach you about the buildings and having prior architecture knowledge doesn't help you with the game. However, this item would obviously be cooler for someone who appreciates architecture than for someone who doesn't.
