Skyrise is a standalone sequel to 2008’s Metropolys, and is based on a similar spatial bidding mechanic. Players begin their turns by placing a numbered bid in an available neighborhood. Players pass or raise the bid by placing a higher-numbered bid in an adjacent neighborhood, until all opponents pass, or there is nowhere available to bid. The high bidder builds their building where their final bid was placed, and begins the next bidding round.

Skyrise honors the spirit of Metropolys, while raising it to new heights. Bidding tokens now have unique numbers, creating interesting new auction dynamics. The beautiful and multilayered modular board multiplies the game's replayability. The strategic depth already offered by public and private goals has been enhanced by a new specialization system that allows players to accelerate their scoring engine as the game progresses, powerful Monuments drafted midgame that provide unique and variable opportunities to enhance or change your strategy, and special power tokens that when earned and played cleverly, can create the epic turning points that will elevate the greatest builders to their ultimate victory.
