Fight rival gangs to take over control of New York City’s crime organization.
Running an up and coming criminal organization is no easy task. You have to surround yourself with people you can trust, complete jobs to bring in money, and spend it wisely on bribing city officials. It doesn’t help that you’re competing with other aspiring crime families, each looking to grab a piece of the pie in 1940s New York City. In The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire, you’re trying to earn enough money so that your organization is in a position to take over control of the city if Don Corleone were ever to meet with an unfortunate accident. Plan your actions carefully, fight for control of your turf, and above all, trust no one, not even family. If you’re able to be the richest mobster at the end of the fourth act, you’ll become the new Don. Enjoy it while you can. It’s never long before a new young mobster will come gunning for you and you might end up facedown in the Hudson.
Make An Offer They Can't Refuse! Based on Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather film franchise, The Godfather: The Board Game plunges players into the world of crime, corruption, and the Mafia in New York City. Keep your enemies close as alliances are made (and broken) as up to five competing Mafia families lie, cheat, and battle for control over the New York rackets and, most importantly, the favor of Don Corleone.
- Suitcases Full of Cash:
- One of the coolest elements in The Godfather: Corleone’s Empire are the metal suitcases, where you stash all your moolah. When it comes time to make a secret bid, load cash in the top and then let it drop for the reveal!
- Evocative Art
- Karl Kopinski has recreated the world of The Godfather, transporting players back to 1940s New York City, and infusing the characters with personality and a life of their own.
- Mobster Minis
- The different members of each of the crime families are represented by highly detailed miniature figures that you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark ally.
Game Length: 60-90 minutes
