Is this the year of Phalanx Games? Chicago Poker is the third outstanding release from Phalanx in this year. I have played 2, 3, and 5-player games so far - all were exciting and different. Complexity is low, Czarne´s very good artwork adds a lot to the game, too. (I still rate Before the Wind and Age of Discovery somewhat higher than Chicago Poker but I´m very satisfied with this game.)

Played 5+ Play with the family. It gets my other half to turn off the TV and join me and our son for an hour of pleasant banter around the dinning room table. How brilliant is that. Priceless. *UPDATE* Several plays later and this game is failing to interest like it used to, I'll drop my rating. Sept 08 *UPDATE* As a family 3 player game with 18 year old som and wife this was enjoyed while on holiday. Rating back up again. Oct 10

A fast way to lose your shirt, or is that your life given the mob action?

Vaguely like Battle Line (with poker hands) to win businesses. Three actions each turn (any mix of draw card & play card).

Only played 2 or 3 player games (without special cards), and with this number, and played quickly, its a good little game. Not sure I'd like to try it with 6 thinkers though.

Feels like multi player Battleline which I love as a two player game. This is easy to teach non-gamers and worked well following our Thanksgiving meal. I'll be taking this to more family events in the future.

Quite good illustrated family-game. It reminds me in Lost Cities with more players.

Not poker, but a nice game that uses poker elements.

Na most kovezzetek meg de megint rosszul jatszottuk elsore. 6 hires/hirhedt gengszter borebe bujhatunk akik a kulonbozo szorakozohelyeken az iranyitast probaljak megszerezni. Mindenki probal a kezebol minnel nagyobb erteku pokerben is hasznalt variaciot letrehozni es akie a legertekesebb, megszerzi az iranyitast. A csavar a dologban, hogy itt 5 szin van (gondolom azert, hogy sima francia kartyaval ne lehessen jatszani) es 1-15 -ig vannak a kartyak ertekelve. Ezert a legnagyobb es legertekesebb kombinacio az 5 egyforma es megtalalhato egy masik idaig nem ismert is a rainbow flush ami 5 kulonbozo szinu lapbol letrehozott sort jelent. 4 kulonbozo szinu szorakozohely lapka talalhato a jatekban. Az a jatekos nyer aki legeloszor gyujti ossze az osszes szint, vagy 3-at egy szinbol, vagy 5 barmilyen lapkat. Es akkor jojjon, hogy mit jatszottunk rosszul. Minden jatekos a kore folyaman 3 cselekvest hajthat vegre, vagy huz lapot vagy kijatszik es ezek kombinacioja. Mi huztuk a lapokat ezerrel es raktuk ossze a brutalis kombokat igy szamomra erthetetlen volt, hogy egy sima parral, hogy is lehet nyerni. Eppen gondolkoztam masnap reggel a kocsiban, hogy laplimittel lehetne ezt tompitani es lassanak csodat, van ilyen a szabalyban, max 7 lap lehet a kezben, igy mar azert mas lesz a jatek. Meg 1 erdekesseg, hogy a kulonbozo szinu szorkaozohely lapkak meghatarozzak azt is, hogy hogyan lehet oda kijatszani 5 lapot. Pl. 5 nyitott, 2 zart aztan 3 nyitott, 3 nyitott aztan 2 zart, nyitottan kezdeni aztan valtogatva igy sokszor rejtve marad az igazi kombinacio.
Update1: Rendes szabalyok szerint mar hatarozottan jo a jatek. Emelkedett is a ponterteke.
Update2: 6-an nagyon be tud lassulni a jatek.

Interesting 'Take That' game where each player tries to compete to control various Mob Businesses. Essentially this is a hand management game where each player is trying to play multiple Poker Hands at the same time and in doing so outrank the other players at each location.

Far too much going on here to judge after 1 play. Looking forward to exploring this one some more.

nice game of competing for control similar to other games (Loot for instance) but the winning card combinations are poker hands. Another good game to introduce non-gamers who know games like poker to the variations of game mechanics that are out there.
