Gamboni - Coming to Kickstarter in May!

gamboni box new GAMBONI is a board game for 2 to 5 players. The game map is a representation of New York City in the 80’s where Five Families control organized crime. Stay tuned for more info via GAMBONI on Facebook

In GAMBONI, each player starts with $ 5,000, 2 "weapon cards" and one unique skill token. Players take turns to COLLECT money from controlled area and businesses, MOVE around the board and perform actions and finally TRADE, buy weapon cards from other players or business sites from the bank.
In a standard 5 player game, each player has 7 turns (one week) to gather as much MONEY, POWER and RESPECT points as possible, whilst staying alive ... MONEY points are earned by controlling area and operating business sites such as pizza co's, strip clubs and drug labs. POWER by controlling complete area's and RESPECT by attacking and succesdfully defending. These points are represented by poker chips, stacked on the left side of the board.
Players with weak moral values can choose to become a stool pigeon and RAT to the FBI in exchange for a large sum of cash. This is also rewarded by a contract on the head of the snitching player, twice the amount he received from the FBI for any player correcting this player who talkes too much.
Key to winning GAMBONI is to find the right balance between RISK and REWARD. The game involves tactics, strategy, diplomacy, bluffing, risk taking as well as a portion of luck. One must be agressive and active but know when to stop and whom to attack and whom to keep as a friend...
