Description Edit | History

Kingpin is a tactical board game for 2 players, aged 18 and above. The estimated gameplay time is 15 – 30 minutes.
Participants play the roles of the eponymous kingpins – mafia bosses. The objective of the game is to defeat the enemy mafia, led by the opponent.

In Kingpin, players choose between three different crime syndicates: the Italian Mafia, the Russian Mob, and the Yakuza. Each organization has different pieces, changing the style of each game. The Yakuza prefers quiet assassinations, the Russian Mob overcomes its opponents with sheer firepower, and the Mafia specializes in swift drive-by shootings. The game "neo noir" theme borrows heavily from cult gangster movies and graphic novels, such as the works of Quentin Tarantino or Frank Miller.

Three important features of the game are: a two-sided game board featuring two different maps, three victory conditions available for the players, and the lack of randomness during play. The authors describe it as a fast-paced game of nerves, somewhere between a Mexican standoff and a game of chess where the rooks and bishops run around with Tommy-guns.

Because of the suggestive theme, the publisher considered this title unsuitable for children.

The game contains the following components:

- double-sided board,
- 24 gangster tiles,
- 3 action tokens,
- 12 fire tokens,
- game rules.

9 New Army for Kingpin - Cartel
At last we are ready to present to you new army to fight for the control over city - the Cartel. It is a band of thought drug and weapon smugglers, also know as ruthless killers. They are really resistant and have a lot of ammo to pass around. Sadly they do not have a sniper, and have only one tile with cars. We still waiting for graphics for the new army, so as for now, we used some photoshopped graphis from the internet. We do hope you'll like them, although they're not as comic-like as the original graphics. And last thing. We tested and tested and tested the new side agains each of existing gangs, but you understand that we can't take all the possibilities under consideration. That is why we ask you to leave word about new army, if you decide to print it out and test it. It is...
