Description Edit | History

This is the first version of Gang Up!, which was printed after a second (and eventually) succesful Kickstarter campaign. All games were shipped to the players who backed the projects & the remains of this print run were sold at dutch conventions, or were given away to promote the game. This version is oficially sold out.

Game mechanics:

Opposed to the later changed versions; this version also has a 'status requirement' added to the crime-cards, next to the usual 'manpower requirement'. This element was initially added to protect over confident players from engaging in crimes that could result in a big loss of status points. However, this idea could be bypassed by teaming-up with other players, and thus it lost it's effect. In later versions this 'status requirement' was removed from the crime cards because it also slowed down the game (and now, for no good reason). To compensate for the removal of this element, the 'status requirements' on the other cards were lowered & more balanced. In effect, this made for a much smoother & faster game.

This version also includes additional 'Gang Leader & Location'- cards & rules to expand the gameplay. These extra cards are not included in the second print, but they are compattible with later versions.
