Anders from our club introduced me to King of Chicago last weekend, first time I had heard of the game but it turned out to be quite good. The setting for the game is Chicago during the prohibition, each player taking on the role of a crime boss who attempts to carve out territory and power in the city.
The game is won by accumulating 10 influence/power points, power points are awarded to a crime boss for owning the most territory in Chicago, for various businesses he may own and for every two gangsters in his retinue.
King of Chicago is a pretty straight forward game but it offers a lot of fun and backstabbing as players attempt to take control of the streets. In order to control Chicago each player has a bunch of agents at his disposal, a car, gangsters, turf and resource tokens.
