In Board Game mode you must get a gold medal in all five areas. Each area has a different happiness target you must reach or surpass. The target is clearly indicated. There are four different types of towers to build:

Residential (blue):
These towers are the first you can build and will be your primary source of happiness.

Commercial (orange):
The second tower you can build. These towers should be placed next to residential towers as they will increase the happiness of residential towers by a base of 1.5x. A trophy roof upgrade can raise this to 2.5x based on how accurately it is placed. Other upgrades can increase this multiplier to a maximum of 2.8x.
NOTE: A commercial tower will only give this multiplier to the towers directly above and below it and to its immediate left and right; it will not work on diagonals. Also, if two commercial towers are touching a residential tower the residential tower will still only receive one bonus.

Monuments (yellow): These are the third tower you can build. Personally, I never bothered with them as I did not feel they greatly increased the happiness. Monuments will give additional happiness each turn based on how well constructed (how close to perfect) they were.

Skyscrapers (green):
The final building type. These MUST be built on upgraded land (land can be upgraded and coloured based on specific towers, said tower type will then receive an upgrade however a skyscraper can only be built if the land has been upgraded and made green). Skyscrapers are forty blocks high giving you increased potential for happiness if you build the tower well and they will provide a happiness bonus to each other if placed in groups.
NOTE: A skyscraper placed directly beside a residential tower will reduce the residential tower's happiness to zero.

Tips for increasing happiness:

1. Perfectly placed blocks give more happiness.

2. A perfectly placed block will trigger a combo multiplier. This multiplier will increase with each subsequent block dropped. A non-perfect drop will increase the multiplier but not refill the combo time whereas a perfect drop will increase the multiplier and extend the combo time. When the combo time runs out you will get the bonus happiness for all blocks placed during the combo times the max multiplier.

3. Use your powerups wisely. Saving them until you have a few can be beneficial as you can drop a few combo multipliers, followed by a +50 happiness or two to see your happiness really go up.

4. Upgrade wisely. Commercial towers should be the first towers you upgrade starting with the trophy roof as their multiplier to residential towers will greatly impact your overall happiness.

5. Build wisely. Remember that commercial towers only benefit residential towers placed adjacent and not on diagonals. Also, two commercial towers touching a residential tower WILL NOT double the multiplier.

6. Play your cards well. Other than in the first area or two you will likely not be able to build enough towers to fill the board. Towers are your primary source of happiness and should be your primary focus. I did not spend time upgrading land prior to unless it was my only option on that card. Furthermore, if challenges or happiness bonuses come up take them.

If at first you don't succeed, you can replay any area until you get the gold medal.
