I was waiting to pick this up so I could get the game and expansion at the same time, but it seemed the expansion was never in stock anywhere.

I couldn't wait anymore and finally just bought the base game only.

It seems it's a new version and the expansion is included in the base box. The box even says 2-6 players.

This was a nice surprise. Yay me.

Rulebook cover -- notice the number of players: 2 to 6.

Edit: Also notice Saint Louis on the map in the background.

I just purchased this game which indicates on the box it is for 2-6 players. I have not played it but hopefully will soon. Here are my reactions to what I received.

All of the cards identified in the rule book were present including the following:
32 City Cards (Boston cards use white text on a yellow background so are extremely difficult to read)
9 character cards(includes the Boss card)
5 Police cards

In addition to the cards there the following pieces:

1 large green marker
1 rule book
11 larger red cubes
4 smaller red cubes
1 red Banish counter (like a flat coin)
11 larger white cubes
4 smaller white cubes
1 white Banish counter
11 larger yellow cubes
4 smaller yellow cubes
1 yellow Banish counter
0 larger blue cubes
3 smaller blue cubes
1 blue Banish counter
0 larger black cubes
3 smaller black cubes
1 black Banish counter
1 score pane tracker

The rule book states that there should be 60 gangster cubes that include 42 expert larger cubes and 18 occasional smaller cubes plus 5 score cubes. It appears to me that there are some missing larger cubes in the box as there were only 33 (3x11) larger cubes in three colours. I think there should be 6 larger black cubes and 6 larger blue cubes, but they were not in my box.

There were 18 smaller cubes with 4 each for Yellow, Red and White but only 3 for Black and Blue.

I will have to contact the manufacturer or distibutor to get the missing parts. Hopefully they will send them to me soon.

I do remember from buying just the expansion back in the day that it came with an unexpectedly "off" number of cubes. I think the intention was that you need less cubes when playing with more players / partners, so you could only use certain player colors at higher player counts.

Just went to Philibert's site, and the only listing for The Boss I could find looked like the 2-4player version. Is that what you ordered? Have they just not updated the info? Thanks!

the main description and pictures are from the older version but the player count information is "2 to 6", therefore I suppose that they still sell the newest version. but I can suggest you to write them an email - usually they will answer very soon.
