La Cosa Nostra
A ruthless interactive cardgame by Johannes Sich
The first edition is in german and the game is not language independant
Each player controls Gangster Cards gangster cards that serve for performing action cards to either gain money or attack other players. Actions are planned secretly, placed face down and then played in turn.
Often you need certain business cards to succeed. If you don’t own them yourself, you can negotiate deals with the other players. The players bargain, spy, threaten and deceive each other.
Each of four game rounds brings new action cards and the number of gangsters increases. Thus, the possibilities for actions become more diverse, the jobs more profitable, the attacks more powerful. Cooperation gets more attractive and treason alluring. Cause at the end of the day it’s only the money that counts.
