To his surprise, Planetizen Editor Tim Halbur apparently puts a low priority on livability and a high priority on innovation, making him an ideal citizen of a future Houston.
Itir Sonuparlak of The City Fix summarizes the game:
"Each player assumes the role of a decision maker and answers questions to determine the priorities of a fictitious city. By answering 'yes' or 'no' to questions like, 'Will you double the cost of public transport to fund its conversion to a carbon-neutral system?' or 'Will you pay for a free bike service in your city?' players build a city that best matches their urban ideology. As we've written about before, 'serious gaming' like this 'can help people become astute, collaborative and creative problem-solvers.'"
