A crime game that's steeped in theme. You can use your thug to extort or beat up on others. Your racketeer can help you take over property (new joints you control) and your vamp literally sucks the skills out of your opponents or uses her wile to extort. Cops can bust crimes but can be bribed and the public can be used to increase profits through organized crime. There are a good number of choices and movement options (secret passages through buildings you own, subways, the mean streets). Playing with a 2 minute timer makes the game clip along at a good pace and builds some excitement in trying to figure out the best tactical moves before the buzzer goes off. Oh! and let's not forget that if you successfully gun your opponents you get to shoot them with a water gun.

My only problem is with the win conditions. It seems much easier to win by money than through buildings acquired. If you go for the buildings win then it becomes much more difficult to compete with those just trying to accumulate profits. Seems this could be fixed if your equity was somehow added to your profits. Additionally, the $10K win condition comes by way to quick -- especially considering that payments can often be 3K - 5K with a good organized crime setup. Seems that 15K or 20K would make more sense.

A unique game bringing together elements such as roll & move by exact count on a timer, dice combat, real estate development, and alternating control over a shared weapon (the cops) & the major source of income (the public). It comes together very well, being both abstract and consistent with its theme of 1930's organized crime. The game's mechanics ensure outright warfare is kept to a minimum while also making it absolutely necessary from time to time.

Another great old AH chestnut. Unlike a lot of Euros the theme is deeply tied to the gameplay/mechanics.
