Build your nation in a world of magic and machines.

  • A Game for 2-4 Players
  • Game Length 120 min.
  • For Ages 13+

In City of Iron, 2-4 players compete to build up a small nation in a world of machines, magic, and money.  Become the leader of one of four rival races: the industrious humans, the toad engineers, the scholarly Cresarians, or the clever hogmen.

Corner the market on goods like machine parts or bottled demons.  Research steam-age technology and recruit mercenaries to control the continent.  Your cities have limited capacity, so you’ll have to decide what to keep and what to demolish when building advanced structures.

The future of a nation is in your hands.  Build unbreakable foundations for an empire or disappear into the dusty pages of history.


Here's what people have to say about City of Iron

This is by far the best prototype I’ve played this year (2012) – everyone had a blast, with fun, interesting decisions.

After a number of games, not only do I really enjoy the game, but I like the speed and tempo of the game. Each game has a good tempo, yet it has a lot of variety to choose strategies. Another big positive for me, is the set up time is fast. Even sorting/removing cards for a 2-player game, the set up time is about 5 minutes. This makes the game easy to get out and play.

Build steambots, zeppelins, and a colossus in this City of Iron expansion.

  • 5 unique Citizen/Military cards for each nation (20 in total)
  • Other new Citizen/Military cards
  • Revised and updated cards, including the Cartographer
  • New Building cards
  • Steambot tokens and the Kraxian Pirates token
  • Rule book

Experts and Engines is an expansion and requires City of Iron 1st Edition to play.

Scientists and engineers are perfecting the methods of creating mechanical men — powerful, effective workers that never tire if given enough fuel. The great nations of hogmen, toads, Cresarians, and humans race for the advantage this synergy of magic and technology grant them — but automatons are not the only leap forward in this age of discovery. Experts design terrifying war zeppelins, ships that can navigate beneath the waves, and other marvelous machines. Only the nations that embrace tomorrow will emerge ahead.

City of Iron: Experts and Engines, the first expansion for City of Iron, includes new, unique citizen and military cards for each nation which open up a new range of strategies and make playing each nation a distinct experience. It also includes Steambot tokens, which can be placed on building cards to give extra goods. Another addition is the Kraxian Pirates token, which can be placed to negate coin bonuses on goods.
