The land yields valuable letters. Harvest letters by constructing buildings over them. Construct buildings by spelling them.

Building and maintaining a town requires resources. In Lexicopolis: A-B-City, a charming combination of word game and city management sim, that resource is the alphabet. How large, how populated, and how prosperous your city is depends entirely on letters harvested from the land. In the beginning, you have the option to pick between a city size that is small, medium or large. No matter what you choose, you get one free Town Hall that you can place anywhere on the map. It fits perfectly in the middle of the board, but don’t let that be the deciding factor. Even though it’s early in the game, placing the Town Hall haphazardly could very well be the first mistake you make.
