I INSTANTLY fell in love with this game, and that's even after getting destroyed in my first play of it.

The game is a battle for influence in a mob by gaining influence over key members and using the powers on influence cards, the gangster cards, and the gangster positions as well as negotiating with other players to further improve your position.

The reason I'm so enthralled with this game is that first of all the variety is great. There are a ton of influence and gangster cards and they all provide different unique abilities and stats. Each game will feel very different.

The reason I don't think I'll lose any of this enthusiasm is that the options are varied, deep, and many so even if the amount of content starts to become familiar each game can still be played differently, the more players the better in my opinion as you're vying and negotiating with more people.

This is all in addition to some of the best quality components and some of the prettiest and most fun art I've ever seen in a game.

Home run for me on all accounts.

The best game with player interaction. The theme plays a huge role for this game to get a "10" as score. The rules are not well written and they have gaps and omissions. Just track the FAQ at BGG. This is a relatively simple games that result in amazing game play, it has luck but not to much, it has excellent player interaction (and substandard rule book). Production quality is of the highest standard. Get your copy today!

Tom Vassel took the genius base idea of Kremlin - and made it into a fun to play mobster game. I had a blast playing it. The many tiny written texts on the cards makes it more fiddly to play, then Kremlin - but on the other hand, it offers many possibilities to threat and negotiate with the other players. Definitly needs some "roleplaying" and a lot of bargaining about everything to really reach its full potential!

I believe this game is quite underrated. I understand that the first edition had a couple of big confusing points in the rulebook, but second edition is free of those.
The artwork and game components are outstanding. The theme is very strong and fun. I don't usually like competitive games and this one is quite brutal in that regard, but somehow the theme and game mechanics just make it fun, in addition to some smart catch up mechanics meaning a game is never won or lost before the last minute of the game.
Quite an enjoyable and intense experience that I'd strongly recommend !

Great mix of strategy and negotiation. This negotiation kicks other negotiation games butts. You can bribe with anything and there are lots of opportunities to do so. There is also more strategy in this game than a lot of so called strategy games.

Length is an issue. Can't play with two players. There are a lot of errors and ambiguity on the rule book.

Much better than cosmic encounter, which is a game I love.

Need an expansion with variable powers in the different families.

I've been playing this game for quite awhile and absolutely love it. Mafia theme, screw your neighbor, negotiation, back stabbing goodness.

The final production is amazing..thick chunky tokens and money. Beautiful art and graphic design.

Granted it will not be for everyone but it's definitely for me.

A great social game, which encourages almost-constant screwage, deal-making, back-stabbing, kingmaking and general skulduggery. Great fun with the right crowd, i.e. People who find screwing each other over hilariously funny and don't table flip. You know if your gaming group is the right crowd for this game. Clue: do they like Diplomacy, Cosmic Encounter, Kremlin, etc. If you like resource optimising in silence, without looking up from your player board, you're probably not the right group. Also don't play this game if you don't like your opponents messing with your plans... The whole game is your opponents messing with your plans.

Love the cartoon art style. The components are massively over-produced. My copy has cardboard tokens almost a centimetre thick, a gold metal capo ring, deeply embossed dice, and separate card boxes for players' influence tokens. Despite this, the victory point track is slightly too small for the top-hatted gangster meeples, the huge player boards serve no purpose apart from 'whacking' your opponents (they double as a weapon), and the box is hard to close once you've punched everything out.

I really enjoy Nothing Personal. Great mix of deal making, card play, and strategy. All the options and negotiating can lead to analysis paralysis, though, lengthening the game. Highest quality of art and components. With everything else so well done, I was surprised the rule book was unclear and contained mistakes. Still, the game is incredible, one I couldn't refuse.

I have a lot of fun with this game! The components are amazing, and the gameplay is top-notch. I really have fun trying to take over the capo, and seeing that ring change hands almost every turn... sometimes multiple times in a turn.

Even though I'm not generally a negotiation-style-game fan, I really like this one a lot, because it's sort of minimized.

The art, and the fact that the people are representatives of people and game designers, I feel a connection to many of the personalities that show up, even if it's only just barely.

great design and the ability to F your friends over with all sorts of cards, deals/bribes, moves and whack jobs.

definitely fits into a more "aggressive" group of players who can take a ribbing from their friends and laugh it off. with more plays and the expansion this could become a 10.

great first effort from Vasel and company.

I've only played it once - but I really enjoyed it. It's got a Kremlin feel to it, but with the Mafia theme it was really enjoyable.

Easy to gauge how respect and money are earned - and with some negatives and multipliers, cards get heavily contested. Really fun overall.

This is a great game: there's a lot (I mean A LOT) of backstabbing and frontstabbing in it and, therefore, you have to bring it to the table with the right group. They have to understand that all the stabbing is not personal. =)

My friends really like this game. Kudos to the designers!
