Seated on the coast of Zealand, Copenhagen, the picturesque capital of Denmark, is divided into neighborhoods by a crisscrossing of harbors and canals. One of the neighborhoods, "Nyhavn" (New Harbor), is famous for is colourful gabled houses perched along the waterfront. In Copenhagen, players are architects striving to build the most impressive new facades by purchasing different shaped tiles and piecing them into rows and columns.
Copenhagen is a mixture of a rummy style card collection game and tetris, a polyomino game. On your turn, you will either take two adjacent cards from the card display, or use the cards you have collected to purchase facade tiles of different shapes and place them on your house. There are discounts for placing like colors together, and special abilities can be earned by covering certain spaces or rows. Players gain points by finishing rows and columns, and the first to 12 points wins the game. More gameplay info can be found below.
With the help of cards players take facade- tiles that they use to embellish their own houses. By building over specific spaces and whole floors they gain additional abilities for the rest of the game. Floors that entirely consists of windows are very desirable, because they earn the player many points.
The player who most cleverly builds their fasade-tiles and uses their abilities to the full potential will be the winner of the game.
