Mafioso: The Underworld debuts at GenCon Indy

August 19th, 2014

Omerta Game Ltd, is ex cited to announce that ‘meaner than chess’ mafia-themed strategy card game, Mafioso: The Underworld, made its Gen Con debut at this years convention in Indianapolis.

Created by Lafayette, Indiana brothers Matt and Drew Gould, Mafioso: The Underworld is a fast-paced game of cards and dice set in the seedy world of organized crime.

Two-to-five players must compete to build the most lucrative criminal empire while preventing their opponents from doing the same thing. The goal of Mafioso is to be the Crew with the most valuable Empire on the table at the end of the game, for only the crew with the most lucrative Empire will be chosen by Big Sal to remain a part of the Gouldini Crime Family, and the rest will be ‘fed to the fishes.’

Mafioso players navigate a variety of obstacles and Wiseguy’s on their quest for wealth and power. With a massive selection of crew members, racketeering options and all-out criminal wars encompassing over 120 colour printed cards, no two rounds of Mafioso, which average 1-2 hours of playtime, are ever the same.

When the going gets gritty and the mean streets of Mafioso need painting red, opposing players attack each other directly using dice and strategic modifiers. To keep the pace tense, Rat cards are added to the deck as the game progresses – a threat to every Crew on the table. Nobody likes a dirty, stinkin’ rat.

Mafioso: The Underworld is currently available via Amazon, priced $18.49.
