This might be tricky. In the mid to late 90s myself my brother and Dad played a fair few boardgames. My brother was talking about one of these today that I'd completely forgotten but neither of us can remember what it was called. what we do know.

- It was set in america 20's era
- players were bank robbers trying to steal the most from the banks
- one mechanic was hidden totals , each bank had a token with a picture of a kind of doctors bag and the dollar total on the back so you didn't know how much you were going to get from each bank job

what we think we remember but aren't sure
- you travelled from city to city across america ( Memphis was one?)
- the player token was a typical 20's gangster movie car (like a bonnie and clyde ford or a chrysler or something)


Any help appreciated!

Apart from the bank robbers, it sounds a lot like Maloney's Inheritance

Wow, That's spot on. Looks like we misremembered a few things.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks for the tip, Dave.

As Lonnie said - it's rare for one of these 'mystery game' questions to stump everyone on bgg.

My trick is to take every single 'fact' mentioned as suspect, and just get an overall impression of what's being described. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Ah, the famous Model T. Comes in any colour you want, as long as you want black!
