Flip City Reuse Expansion Review

In order to play the Flip City Reuse Expansion, you need the base copy of Flip City.

We review Flip City here.

The Reuse expansion of Flip City adds four different abilities to the game. The Plumber Shop forces every opponent  to discard their top card or the bottom card of their deck.  On the flip side of Plumber Shop is the Renewal Agency.  Renewal Agency gives 3 cash to the player can be used to spend only on Flip/Develop costs. The Flea Market can be optionally kept in the discard pile when reshuffling.  It also has the recycle symbol on the beginning side, so that it can be recycled right away. On the flip side of the Flea Market is the Recycling Bin.  The Recycling Bin has zero effect when played, but when it is flipped (at a cost of 1), you can flip an additional card.

Flip City adds 4 different abilities, which are represented on two cards, double sided.

The Reuse expansion adds some more interaction between players as well as giving more opportunities to flip and recycle cards.  Each player starts with one Plumber shop and one Flea market in their deck. The rest of those cards can then be purchased from the general supply later.  I like that the Reuse expansion makes flipping cheaper and easier to do because of the Flea Market and Recycling Bin.  Since Flip City is all about maximizing your deck, it is very cool that there are more ways to do so.
