As some of you know by now, one of our ideas for an expansion is to create overlays for the playing board which mimic real cities.

This expansion idea is just one of many and we will have to weigh-out which ones actually happen in the end and in what order, etc.

With this in mind, this is all being done just for fun at this point, but on the other hand, the feedback offered here in this thread could very well play a role in deciding which cities are ultimately picked!

Here is a few Cities we were thinking could be good (in no particular order):

New York
Copenhagen
Detroit
Berlin
LA
London
Essen
Chicago
Paris
Tokyo


Ssssooooo...

The question is, what cities do YOU want to see offered?

Feel free to weigh-in with a single city, or a top 10 list, or whatever you want!

Miami Vice!!!!

But need more pastel colors on the officers. Get George working on a Cuban homicide detective (like my favorites from the First 48)!

some do.. some don't... but I like Paris... Paris has fabulous landmarks and fascinating streets and romantics names... and I recommend Engrenages (Spiral in English version) on DVD... great drama... watched it post-Wire/Sopranos/Killing withdrawal.

Binghamton. Yes, Binghamton, NY.

There were two shootings in a span of two weeks, a murder-suicide a few days ago, and someone is always being arrested for narcotics possession. I think it would be perfect. . .

While all of these sound interesting, I am hoping that any expansion would be more than just a re-skin of the map. If going with a location idea, what I'd like to see is have the location come with cases that were specific to the region as well as potentially add some additional game mechanics (such as not being able to use weapons). Because of this, I would prefer if the city chosen was outside the U.S., which is where I assume the base game takes place.

If you'd like a specific recommendation, I'd be partial to seeing the Shibuya district of Tokyo (second vote for lots of neon). You could potentially have Yakuza (as well as typical street toughs) and pachinko parlors. I'm sure there is all sorts of unsavory things going on there (people being people and all). I can't recall if Japanese police are armed (I'm thinking not). That in itself could potentially lead to some interesting situations. Martial arts training anyone?

Another option would be to potentially look at it from the other side ... GTA the board game.

Or how about an earlier time period like the 1930's or 1940's? Some along the lines of L.A. Noire.

Washington DC and some big time interaction with Federal Agencies such as the C.I.A., F.B.I., ATF, Secret Service, Homeland Security and more.

Wouldn't mind seeing the city the Wire took place in, Baltimore.

Chicago would be awesome. You have Lake Michigan as the eastern boarder, Lake Shore Drive, Navy Pier, as well as Aldler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum and Soldier Field all real close to each other.

As a general rule British cops don't have guns, many of the continental police forces do.

I second Paris as a backdrop and can also recommend the Engrenages series.

Also note that most European cities are not laid out on a grid system like many US ones. This is not to say that European cities were not planned, much of central Paris was designed to give the best possible fields of fire for artillery when dealing with difficult riots. Makes the typical cop-gang shootout seem a bit tame

Holy crap you guys use artillery for riots over in Europe?? Kind of makes the gun control argument over here a moot point.

Our police are armed. Thankfully, the rest of us are not.
