The Night Chicago Died …

Mob blood run in your veins? Or does it just run in the streets of Chicago? Gangsters is your chance to find out, to prove your metal, or to catch a slug in the back! Four gangs compete to rule the streets of Chicago in all-out gang warfare. Your racketeers secure the choice joints from which to conduct your affairs. Your vamp seduces the members of rival gangs with promises of wealth, power, fame, and success. Meanwhile, thugs give your gang the raw muscle to make your plans a reality. Feel like puttin’ the squeeze on local businesses or just puttin’ the enemy six feet under? These are yer boys! Meanwhile, youse gotta keep da boyz in blue under control with carefully placed bribes and by tippin’ ’em off to rival operations! And if dat wuzn’t enough, youse gotta get da marks tah buys lots o’ yer moonshine!

Game Mechanics
Originally thought of as a simple, beer-and-pretzel game (with a squirt gun, for cryin’ out loud), Gangsters has evolved as top contenders have analyzed and published strategy into a serious (and seriously fun) competition. Youse can expect tah see names like “Dusk", “The Head", “Slumord", and “Sticky Fingers” appear in the Final year after year. Gangsters is an elegant game of balancing and maximizing odds. “There are no bad die rolls in this game—youse just gotta be ready!” How many of the possibilities can you turn into good ones? Should you pursue a monopoly? Real estate domination? Or should you just pile up the dough? When is the right time to use your muscle, to risk the cops, or sit tight? The decisions aren’t trivial nor for the faint-of-heart. But if you’re ready, the streets of Chicago await you-with the best combination of pure fun, strategic competition, and squirt guns anywhere! Youse can learn what you need to know to begin your life of crime at any heat or delve into greater strategy at the demo session.

Squirt Guns
Please help us keep our singular exception to the BPA Weapons & Uniforms policy by using only squirt guns with neon colors and only at those Gangsters’ tables designated for squirt gun use. Thank you!

Format & Prizes
Each heat is a brand-new competition. Win once during any of the four heats to advance to the single-elimination semifinal. Those who’ve played zero or one times before are eligible for the Junior Godfather award. The player who takes the most hits in a single game wins the Roadkill award. The player who gets seduced most often in a single game wins the “I think She likes Me!” Award. Cement Overshoes and a trip to the bottom of Lake Michigan reward good sportsmanship.
