I gave this a 10 on theme alone. It's about time someone has come up with a good mafia game!

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!

A really great game if your play group is in for this type of game. I didn't give it full points because I know that it's not for everyone.

Awesome game... but you have to like negotiation games and have a group that likes negotiation games, if not this game isn't for you...
Very well design

I have a special place in my heart for negotiation games and negotiation games designed by people who love Cosmic Encounter have an even more special place in the sub-cockles of my heart.

So much fun. I love the deal making (and breaking) that goes on in about every aspect of the game. Sure it feels a little swingy at times but overall it is a great experience.

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 gangster game that actually feels like a gangster game. The beefiest game components ever. Good mechanics and great flavor.
