Watch the Gangs of New York once again.

Or is the game a remake of Die Macher?

Nope: it's an original design from Andreas Steding!

I actually got to play it in Prototype version November 2010 at UCONN in Ann Arbor and it was a lot of fun. At that time it had a different theme, but I really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to getting a look at the new and shiny retheming...

What theme did it previously have and is there anything else you can tell us about it?

With this and Tammany Hall, the subject ought to be pretty well covered.

Sigh . . . STOLEN!!! First it's Tammany Hall, now this. devil

How frustrating. I've been working on a Five Points game for years, built around the gangs, violence, racism, corruption and other socioeconomic and political aspects of the period.

Shame

Yeah, two games on a theme seems like enough already. More than that, and it's immediately going to start feeling stale.
