Mini Metro • Transport Game • 2015

Mini Metro is a transport network building game…I discovered it by accident when I was looking at metro maps. The visual user interface is lovely.

Basically, you have to keep the city running by building a metro system. If the city stops; you lose. Obviously, the city and its population grow, and you get extra resources accordingly.It starts simple and small and gets big and complicated…

It’s a strategic plate-spinning game.

I was reminded of John Conway’s, Game of Life (1970).

And of Ken Garland’s, Harry Beck and dominos inspired, tile game, Connect (1970)

Railway Flag • Asafo Fante • early 20C

These lovely pictorial flags were made on the west-coast of Africa in the early part of the 20C. The pictorial sophistication is wonderful, and full of energy. A bit like good Ben Nicholson.
