Quietville needs a new mayor. Before the people vote, though, each candidate must govern a small part of this great city to prove his ability. Unfortunately, that's not an easy task. Quietville sits beside a frequently erupting volcano, happens to be the city of choice for alien invasions, and is a favorite playground of a mutant radioactive dinosaur – and these are only a few of the disasters Quietville must face! Whoever can build and protect the most prosperous city area, by avoiding or limiting the damage of these terrible disasters, will be elected new mayor of Quietville!
Quietville is a new edition of Bull in a China Shop, and includes the designer's "Divine Intervention" cards that give players the opportunity to perform different actions during the game.
